I will that the "muther-fluffing" steak, with mushroom sauce, and chips.
...Yes I am aware that that's the biggest steak you can legally sell. I'll be here a long time, okay?

Hullo - yes, my special cask, again.  Here's the key - I know it has been a while.  Just a single snifter.  One for yourself, as well.

I know, after all this time it should have gone over.  But it is like manna, isn't it.  Not much left, but it is all golden... 23 July, 1914, the Empire issued an ultimatum with a list of demands to Serbia, following the assassination of Franz Ferdinand, and this cask was nearly half full still.  I still had the chateau, then - it was destroyed, of course, but this dusty old cask was ignored in a corner while they looted all the bottles of inferior stuff.  Franz himself was always a bit of a git, and his wife handled things for him - quite well, I might add.  But that was a terrible thing, no way to die; and some crazed fool gets himself and millions of others killed for very, very little, just by murdering Franz and poor, sweet Sophie.

Ah, well.

Cheers!

P'raps some chamomile tea?

Pardon me if I get maudlin... just remembering all the to-do about Franz and Sophie - died for their Empire, but the "aristos" pitched a fit over letting them lie in state together.  Gah.  The marriage was morganatic, the children couldn't inherit, what the Hell did they think by showing disrespect towards her when she was already dead?

And when that idiot Princip shot them, well, Franz was a good man to the last - not that it did any good, but he told Sophie she had to live, just to protect my kids.  What a guy.  And me four, five countries away, couldn't do a thing to help. 

After that, everything was different.  I miss them.


Cheers

A nice toddy, then I am done for the night.

Long hard day, but what a great day it was.

Now, a well-earned rest before off to the doc in the morning...  Just a minor thing.

Better that, than a well-urned rest.


Cheers

What on earth is that thing? a pine-apple you say? I've never seen any self-respecting pine tree produce apples. Cones were good enough for them, and their mothers, and their grandmothers.

It looks like the child of an unhallowed union between a palm tree and an armadillo!

At least it isn't a Durian.

Something cold, for me - perhaps a lemonade.  Yes, very nice.
