Bring back happy memories Chris?
The bouncers at the "Big O" could have used a little of your martial arts expertise Peter.
This was a rough joint with a lot of football , basketball players and wrestlers competing
for terf and the attention of the ladies . Could have used you and the Mobster at time &
a half and all the beer and wings (or sausages) you could hold ...
Hi Chris, one bar i worked at in Perth,Australia used to get visiting US Navy and Marines.A few drinks and these guys went a bit wild and i had my hands full.Interesting though if i managed the one who was the ringleader the otheSr stepped back and not as would have thought dived in to help him. That usually got their respect for me and mine for them.Crazy days a lifetime ago.
Regards,Peter.

Sometime ago I stated that if I was in the position to do, I would ask Sticks to do some drawings for my stories about the Musketeers. I am pleased to state that that position has now arrived and knowing how much Sticks loves to draw feats of incredible strength and muscle, therefore would ask him to draw (as only he can) the following to confirm my theory that he would make an excellent artist for my book (which would see him earn some money and a credit in my book)

Henri and Porthos, battling a bull, with Porthos pushing on the horns and Henri pulling on the tail in order to prevent it from trampling a small baby. Both men are straining themselves to the limit but it is clear that this is a true test of their strength, a test that they succeed in.
"Great heavens, what is there to adulate in me? Am I particularly intelligent, or remarkably studious, or excruciatingly witty, or unusually accomplished, or exceptionally virtuous?"
(The Duke of Dunstable, Patience by Gilbert and Sullivan)
