The March of the Mods and Chinese takeaways
I was in
again today. I seem to spend more time there than I did when I lived there. Anyway today we saw something strange in town something that has not been in Montgomery for many many years. It was a Gang of Mods, when I say gang they were all rather old probably all over fifty and I think they were reliving there youth. Sadly Monty was almost completely shut but they did find a certain hotel open but they said the bloke there was a grumpy git. Montgomery
Well I guess people are scared of Gangs of Mods, although they were very friendly and even when one of them dropped his keys down the drain at the side of the road which was unfortunately bolted in place they were still quite chirpy. Well all the others were quite chirpy. I was able to help though and was able to supply some thick wire to make a hook and so we were able to recover the keys and they were all happy again and vanished off in the direction of Bishops Castle waving and making rather of lot of noise but then they are Mods and being somewhat old for Mods probably a bit deaf.
We have finally tried a Chinese takeaway from the Bishop rather than the Church, as the last one from the Church was to put it bluntly ******* Awful. It has to be said the Bishops Chinese takeaway was well good and the fried seaweed was very good. It is always a good sign when the fried seaweed is good and the sweet and sour sauce does not go solid after two minutes, and the owners of the Chinese takeaway don’t understand a word of English. It is at times like this when you need Captain Nessman of the High Seas with you, who is almost fluent in Chinese takeaway menus and is able to say things like. It is lovely to see you today the weather has been rather good, I think I will have the duck and a special fried rice thank you in Chinese; rather than shout 22, 43, 126, 4, ???, thanks. And look like a complete IDIOT still I am used to that. But the food was well YUM so all in all it has been a good end to the day, well up to the point that dads paperwork filing system failed a bit, and the cats attacked him because they had only had four meals today.
Ooo by the way cats do not like Prawn Crackers how odd? ……… silly cats
