NEW YEARS EVE AT THE KINGS ARMS.

So too much Booze, too much food, too many people, too long a night, far far too much enjoyment. Yes that was last night, New Years Eve. In Teignmouth (also a few other places) it has been a growing trend over the last 25 years for fancy dress parties on this night. It has now grown so that probably 25 to 30% of people dress up. Most people get together with friends to do group costumes ie Snow White & Dwarfs, Star Trek cast, Dr Who, Penguins, Playing Cards etc etc. They meet in a pub, up to 20 at a time, have one drink then on to the next pub/club and so on. It is probably advisable here for me to tell you that Teignmouth is ideal for this, with 29 or 30 pubs/clubs/open Hotels within 1.5 miles of the town centre. Sue and I have dressed up several times in the past but not this year.Last night we decided to go to our local "The Kings Arms". Kenny our resident DJ was there to supply the music the rest was up to us. At 9.45pm I stood on a chair and did a rough head count there were around 120 to 130 people in there. So if you didn't have a seat early you didn't get one, we did!!!.
Again Sue went mad with the camera (while both of us were sober) taking about 70 pictures, hence such a long blog. Apologies for poor picture quality on some pictures, due to bad light, and being bumped about it was difficult.
Do click on any picture to enlarge it.
Below, Laurel & hardy of course.
Early in the evening before it got busy.
A couple of Coal Miners being "Nursed".
In the foreground a Snowman and a Female impersonator.
On the left "Scooby Doo" and on the right "Sylvester".
A load of pretty coloured Elves.
Three of the local Girls, Goths,Reindeer and Dancing Girls, complete with "Stockings" oooh and sussies!!!!.
A bit of all sorts here, below.
A load dressed as playing cards.
Snowmen, Pirates and of course Local playmate Kenny.
Not sure what he was but the other is a Nun with a bad habit, he he.
Early in the evening, us all getting our seats.
A few more members of the Pack of Cards.
All i can say is it was a fabulous night that I'm told ended around 3.30 am, we gave up at 1.30 and I had more to drink than I should have by then. Roll on 2009 New Years Eve.
Joke of the day.
Tasty Meal.
A blind man walks into a restaurant and sits down. The waiter, who is also the owner, walks up to the blind man and hands him a menu. "I'm sorry sir, but I am blind and can't read the menu. Just bring me a dirty fork from the previous customer, I'll smell it and order from there."
A little confused, the owner walks over to the dirty dish pile and picks up a greasy fork. He returns to the blind man's table and hands it to him.
The blind man puts the fork to his nose and takes in a deep breath. "Ah, yes that's what I'll have, meatloaf and mashed potatoes." Unbelievable, the owner says to himself as he walks towards the kitchen.
The cook happens to be the owner's wife and he tells her what had just happened. The blind man eats his meal and leaves.
Several days later the blind man returns and the owner mistakenly brings him a menu again. "Sir, remember me? I'm the blind man."
"I'm sorry, I didn't recognize you. I'll go get you a dirty fork." The owner again retrieves a dirty fork and brings it to the blind man. After another deep breath, the blind man says, "That smells great, I'll take the Macaroni/ cheese with broccoli."
Once again walking away in disbelief, the owner thinks the blind man is screwing around with him and tells his wife that the next time the blind man comes in he's going to test him. The blind man eats and leaves.
He returns the following week, but this time the owner see's him coming and runs to the kitchen.
He tells his wife, "Mary rub this fork around your knickers before I take it to the blind man." Mary complies and hands her husband the fork back. As the blind man walks in and sits down, the owner is ready and waiting.
"Good afternoon sir, this time I remembered you and I already have the fork ready for you."
The blind man puts the fork to his nose, takes a deep whiff and says,
"Hey I didn't know that Mary worked here?"

You NAUGHTY boy, that joke is dreadful (but very funny!!LMAO)
I think you should modify the name of your blog. This Old Git should be This Swinging Dude Git!
Struth - on this side of the world we (and many of our friends, we later discovered) were home on New Years Eve, watching the Tattoo on tv, then the fireworks, then off to bed! Now who is old, or what?
