Hello Everyone.

Well. Lockdown continues. And this weary publican now has time on his hands. Which has been in very short supply for the last decade.
Hope all the old pals are safe and well.
All the best,

Well here is a welcome blast from the past!!

Welcome back to the "Old Stragglers Arms" FE.

Looks like the 'band' is back together. Hope you have been keeping well and all is right as it can be in these strange times with your world.

Good to hear from you, FE.
Apart from problems caused by the present trying times I hope all goes well with you.

Great to hear from you after so long, FE. What a ridiculous irony is that now at last you have some time on your hands there is no cricket to watch. One day, perhaps...

Welcome back, FE. I look forward to agreeing with you on matters all and sundry :-)

I very nearly made the same observation with respect to the irony of the situation.
I’ve been reflecting on what’s really important. And I’ve realised that a world which has forced me to become “e-friends” with my next door neighbour, is a world in which I should better value the e-friends I already had.

Good evening, young man, absolutely wonderful to see you again (you know what I mean). Hope you're all safe and well. I think this round is on me. What are you all having?

Re: Hello Everyone.

A glass of your £4000 bottle of Rothschild wine, please. I thought you'd never ask, Jim.

Welcome home, FE, great to hear from you. Hope all is as well as can be, and we'll have cricket to discuss over the bar soon enough.

You want the £4000 Rothschild, Bobs? Thank the lord for that, for a second I thought you'd asked for the expensive one. Ice and a slice with that?

... and could you run to a packet of pork scratchings? I know Bobstan's very partial.

I'm partial to a bit of Somerset cricket, but pork scratchings? Yuk, as some less sophisticated than you, LoL, might say.
