The Notes and Queries Gentlemen's (and Ladies') Club

A book-lined library with leather armchairs and a crackling log fire.

A welcoming lounge with comfortable armchairs and a crackling log fire.

Armand, a chef who supplies meals of breathtaking quality in staggering quantities.

A civilised retreat for people of taste to discuss their derring-do in restoring democracy to Balkan republics; to tell ghost stories in flickering candlelight; and to share capital talk on a variety of matters.

This seems a tidy berth for an old sea-dog.

Achmed! An improving book, a glass of lemonade, some enticing provender, and stoke the fire up, and that right speedily!

pokes fire

By the Lord Hairy!

Sips a gin cocktail

Nibbles on a full English

It's nice to be back.

ReverendBlueJeans - 06 Dec 2019 11:42:25 (#7 of 268)

snores, drools

RosyLovelady - 06 Dec 2019 12:04:53 (#8 of 268)

Gives the Rev a nudge in the ribs.

It's time for pre-prandial refreshment, old bean.

Oh, I say, jolly D.

One simply cannot face lunch on an empty stomach.

angelico - 06 Dec 2019 12:36:58 (#10 of 268)

I'm not feeling well enough for lunch. I told angelica to drink it herself.

CAIRO!!

Dashed awkward, travel to Abroad. Customs fellers drawing attention to 'International Freelance Troubleshooter' in the 'occupation' bit of one's passport.

Could someone please pass the salt? And another whole roast chicken?

RosyLovelady - 06 Dec 2019 14:02:22 (#13 of 268)

Remember to leave something for Miss Manners.

'By Jingo! I realised that I'd married them of 'em!'

Goes back to sleep in front of the fire.

Just need to loosen the old trousers a smidgen.

It started to get a bit tight around the waist after that third helping of spotted dick.

You didn’t fancy the Greek salad, then? Nor I. Nasty green leaves. Who on earth does the secretary think she’s catering for, eh? Some of us look to the lunches here to bring our cholesterol up to speed.

FleurDuMal - 06 Dec 2019 19:51:03 (#17 of 268)

Ay oop lads and lasses!

Any room for a little ‘un ‘ere?

<falls in a drunken heap, swilling Old Peculier>

FleurDuMal - 06 Dec 2019 19:53:06 (#18 of 268)

I’n’t this the ‘Appy ‘Ound then?

Oops, must’ve strayed inter wrong pub.

Fatjack55 - 06 Dec 2019 19:57:20 (#19 of 268)

A schooner of Marsala and a pipe of opium, if you'd be so kind. Forgive this rather tacky aluminium cane, my sword stick had to go in the Neva after the contretemps at the Aquarium.

barkis - 06 Dec 2019 20:06:38 (#20 of 268)

I see old Hubert still doesn't dare show his face. It was his own fault if you ask me. Elasticated trousers forsooth!
