    urgh,
    I see it has been resurrected, bumped, brought to the fore, and once I calm down from my experience of "Slipdigits War", I shall prepare myself a proper cup of tea (or possibly a good Brandy), light a fine cigar and endeavor to peruse your tome to wit: "Englishmen Go to War".

    Ironically, if Urqh was still around, he'd be 'vacationing' from the Forums for the Month of September. Me and him made a bet back at the start of this past Football (European Soccer) season and I won (the bet was that the loser 'vacations' for the month of September). Hmm...the one time I win a bet...!

    FYI Matt, the mysterious urqh has resurfaced. He posted the other day, and I just saw that he is lurking around as I write this. I thought I felt a ghostly chill when I signed on, now I know why.

    I should have waited for the warning! I recently attempted and not long ago posted to the "Englishmen Go to War".
    It may take a while to return to the scene of the 'crime'.

    It has been far too long that this has not seen the light of day. I only bump this as a warning to all the new rogues of the wealth of intellectual genius we have here . Heed thy advice as those who dost not shall suffer the consequences.
    I also ask, with hat in hand, that in the Season of giving and caring for our fellow Man, a new installment, a "Present" if you will, of further drafts (daft drafts?) from our esteemed Urgh.

    ...If a guy, not necessarily someone we know, had some sheep that grazed on magic mushrooms, accidentally of course, and then that guy slaughtered that sheep and ate it.... Would that guy be effected from the sheep ingesting the psilocybin? ....Just askin'...Cause- this guy ( two thumbs pointing towards me ) wants to know.

    I thought these threads were long gone...Written in my days of rapier fencing with Mussolini...Where did he go..I miss Musso....I'm sure he had a bullseye painted on his back...Sorry Musso...

    As for daft..the life of urqh and his goat as featured in freezone will soon be appearing in Readers Digest under military humour....Believe that you'll believe anything...

    I much preferred these two though...What happened to all thos ww2 forum folk mentioned...Maybe we should do a where are they now...I'm sure I sure Stefan at the recent Euro meeting ignoring Cameron...

    Short critique of Slipdigit's War, a new creation............selfishly derived by me I might add.....I feel so left out as the only "look-alikes" included were Obama's and the only others similar to me were all of another sex.....donuts I think......and in all his omniscience he neglected to provide a part for the most important inclusion of my partially restored jeep of 1952 military (Willy's) but of course I have never mentioned it on the forum but if he would have notified us of the new creation I would have brought it up...........now the jeep was just idle and out in the garage for the entire episode, no donuts to haul, or anything.

    Euro wars is currently on the way....It has to get past the new curator trustee guy though...He may not wish to publicise his own part in bringing down the Euro as he walks the corridoors of power in Brussels disguised as the French President. Napoleon Belsar. Its due for sale at all good bookshops priced 1 dollar, 2 pounds or 30,000 Euros just in time for Xmas.

    I am sure he will duly consider the source (man who stares at sheep at the sheep pens) now I have been brought to wonder about some things.....when you tend your flock are you like equipped as are those in the Don Quixote depiction with Staff, Horn on saddle and Whips? And when creative writing there at the pen do you have good high speed wireless connection to internet or do you use awl and scroll of tanned sheep hide? Fans are wanting to know.

    I think Kruska ate a dog that didn't agree with him, he was in China remember. "M" I believe is meditating on a mountain top, or in a cave on a mountain. Volksgrenadier44 (the Coder breaker) has been awol for only a couple weeks. Of course he was only here for a couple weeks? - grounded by his parents? Stefan is here I think - just can't see him in his ghillie suit. Others seem to stop in but don't stay. Maybe a mention of their names will illicit a response?

    Oh dear. I'd forgotten this thread. Whenever urqh posts, we should all take our sheep and run away, hard. I thought Sipdigit's war ended long ago. As a teacher, I teach about this, so it must be over. Urqh, are you here?

    A two pound coin? You must have to wear heavy duty suspenders if you have a couple of them in your pocket? It must be big around as a moon pie!

    Sure it's well old but it still holds interest. Like an accident along side the road, we know it's going to be ugly but we can't help but slow down and look. Reading your short novella's takes me back to the days of my youth and English class. Not necessarily Mrs. Nelson's asking me what the author meant but those short mini-skirts the gal across the aisle wore. Ah Diane where are ya' now. Oh yeah she married a guy 15 years her junior. And HA ! A Gleam ya' say? I knew Belasar was an old coot!

    It's like looking at old porn. Can't keep away from it. Can't look away.
