Me thinks the lads in Salisbury, England are not much different than the lads in Salisbury, Maryland.


I have been to many a bar in the bury. Many. Hell the bars I liked to get down in don't exist anymore. Like Don's Belldonna or Market Street back in the day when the hippies and addicts ran the place. We used to get trashed and do cannonballs off the bridge in the Wicomico River. I know SSR is shaking about that. I can't ever remember ripping a urinal off the wall and taking it home. I got a place to piss at home and never really wanted that bar urinal that everyone and there mother has pissed in at my home. So when I ran across this article below, I laughed.
A man who was caught on CCTV carrying a urinal out a Hampshire pub has handed himself in.

The 42-year-old man, who has not been named, confessed to police in Salisbury reports the BBC.

The man told police he had taken it from the Royal Oak pub in Southampton as a "souvenir".

Landlord Alan Dreja said he was delighted to have the urinal back and may put it on display in the pub.

According to the BBC he said: "The publicity which surrounded the theft seems to have flushed him out."

The thief has been given a caution.


Man, you think they could do something about that plumbing. It's good to know that the boys across the pond party hard too.

Have any of you noticed that Joe is continuing to post his blogs but he's doing very little chattering in the comments section.
I ususally can't post anything without getting jabbed at but he's being unusually quiet??????
I wonder if He'll wear a bright orange dress shirt tomorrow?

Historical Wit said...

Yeah, looks like hes trying to keep a low pro, but thats not in his character. I honestly have no idea how it will play out.

SRR;the Saddle Club? You're showin' your age now!(as am I)Oh yeah,Jean Pierre's:either way you staggered,left or right,you would end up at one of the two bars(what a marketing concept).What was the bar south of Fruitland on 13 called?And the one on Bateman St.?(late 70's-early 80's).

Seweromico River Rat said...

South of Fruitland was the Circle Bar. I forget the one on Bateman Street. Some funky rock and roll name.
Che'John escorted me out of his bar one night with a very pretty 357 magnum jambed in the back of my neck!. And I didn't even start the damn fight.

That bar on Bateman street started out as The Sea Gull Lounge when it opened in 1975. The days back when the Pub and The Fire House were hopping weren't so bad either.

The bar south of Fruitland on 13 was Byrd's Tavern and before that I think it was called Sam's Place.
The bar on Bateman was the Phoenix.
I think. Everything is fuzzy from back then. lol

MsNobody said...

The Phoenix was 1st The Sea Gull Lounge I bet you money!

jcinsby said...

msnobody
yes you are right but when i went there it was the phoenix.
How about that Charles Dickens Band.

Seweromico River Rat said...

I always knew the bar at the intersection in fruitland as the circle bar.
Pheonix is right, can't remember it being called the seagull lounge.
Couldn't stand the flying club or firehouse. Ventilation in those places sucked.
Bands???? Boy I was real FUBAR back then but I remember the Great Train Robbery and there was one other that cme over from OC that was good.

Mr. Green Jeans!

Ernest T. said...

Yep,Byrd's Tavern and Phoenix.Both always smelled like puke.The Charles Dickens Band used to play at the Holiday Inn, north of Salisbury,before they turned it into an airport lounge.I remember the night the Wrestlers were in town and were staying at the Holiday Inn.The band had one of the wrestlers on stage singing.Not sure,but the name Cowboy Bill Watts or something like that comes to mind.And the "Samoans" were there.In fact,one of them knocked me out of my seat because he could not get through plethora of tables and chairs on his way to the restroom.Oh,the good old days.

While still on the subject;Crash Davenport was great,particularily when they were backed up by the Cold Sweat Horns.
