Pink elephants

Pink elephants and hangovers aren't the worst that those of us who enjoy a few spirits now and again have to endure.

Coley Jones - Drunkard's Special

I'd be willing to bet that most, if not all, of the regular riders on the Bus enjoy tipping back a bottle now and again. Riding here stone cold sober is not recommended.

Yep, I agree Ed

The window's down in the back, wind blowing throught my hair (what's left) and sipping on a glass of "Whiskey" I picked up from NRPS off their 1972 Gypsy Cowboy.

Cheers, I'm about to put me feet up!

Sorry to hear that, Ed. I've enjoyed the ride and music. But, I don't imbibe. I find the music as crisp as the air. I hear each note from each instrument clearly. I understand every word and hear every inflection. What's the point of making great music if all the listeners blur the sounds into a stupor induced drone? Being stone cold sober doesn't prevent my foot from tapping or grinning with pleasure from the music or singing along (which is better when the rest of you are under the influence). To each his own, but don't say being sober is not recommended on the bus. I've enjoyed the ride verrrrry much. Do you want me to get off?

That's a new Ian and Sylvia for me, thanks. They are, for me, about the saddest duo. Every one of their songs seems to have been a hit for someone else.

To our Anonymous Friend - No requirements here. Tea-totalers to stumblin' fools, it's the music that matters! Whatever your vice, or lack there of. I don't mean to ruffle any feathers, although it's bound to happen from time to time. We seem to have a diverse and friendly group here. Keep your seat, my friend. Your voice would surely be missed.

Kat - I am surprised. I have been quite impressed with your knowledge of folk music and the various selections that you post.
I pulled this Ian & Sylvia from their "Northern Journey" lp. You have mentioned before, that Richard & Mimi were there when you found folk music. For me it was Ian & Sylvia.

Donandtootie - When enjoying an evening out, I always request a table in the "smokin', drinkin', and cusin' section". Always gets a smile - and a secluded table!

I'm always verrrrry thankful for your responses. Not just to me, but to everyone. They're educated, informed and witty. The skill of this blog proves that you are not in the bottom of the bottle as often as you imply. You and all the ridrers have fun loving, tongue-in-cheek attitudes that make this site fun. It IS about the music. Everybody have one on me and don't mind me if I have a tall cold milk, straight up.

It's verrrrry rare and cavalier of me to throw out a compliment. It most likely won't happen again.

I did't expect so.
