I hope it was a Policewoman and not Policeman Scally ;)

Jeff even a well oiled LMC Londoner did not live like me in that short period of my life, I was a "Burrha Sahib" Who was cosseted in every Port in Asia, where they robbed me blind, when I was blind drunk.LOL cheers scally.

No Fain definitely Not! have you ever seen an attractive WPC? In Hong Kong one night, this WC Londoner Bar Inspector got so sick of arguing with a drunken Scot, that He gave me a PC to do my bidding when I returned to this flash Hotel where the Manager was foolish enough to have me eject by his henchmen. I had to pay a taxi for the both of us, but it was worth it when started waving his baton at every one I spoke to. There was a wee problem that this fellow had not one word of English,and I,m sure that the WC Londoner Inspector was well aware of this. To make a long story short, the LMC Londoner Manager of this flash Hotel surrendered to my drunken demands and retrieved the register to return any money I thought I was due, He asked my name , I gave him it, he searched the book and could find no trace, then it hit me I had signed a different name, but could not remember it ( premature Alzheimers). So I let him off with a caution gave my PC $10, and had the Manager get a flunky to call me a taxi. Those were the days, long gone and never to return, when a White Gentleman was treated with respect.LOL cheers scally

Hello Scally, splendid lights and pretty silhouette.

Greetings Micha

Harry Taggart on August 25, 2009

I think the only one that would agree with you would be the Hong Kong PC, who got a few hours of duty, to show his Authority with his Baton, and probably swept the street with my $10 on his way back to the Station.LOL cheers scally. I, m off now to a dental appointment Jeff :-(((( scally.

Hello Scally, I know I'm a bit late about buddhism but there is a nice saying Buddhim believes in reincarnation and so it's the only religion which has proof of it concepts. When I get older I meet mor and more people who act like reborn cows. Sorry for my not so brilliant translation
