YIPPY I OH ... (The sad tale of Boozing Bird Blue)

Mr Cruisedog in his bunk bed


A rare photo of Preconderotous - which this site is named after. Everyone told me that I 'couldn't' name a chihuahua that but it was meant to be. He answered to 'Precon' and his son had half his name - De Rotous ... so long ago has been their passing, but his name lives on for all to see ...

Strange that Vimeo/YouTube vids ALWAYS work embed. in side panel, but not Blogger!

Ingle spots it first ...

After many an adventure - including Bobby locking himself out of his tank of a 'car' - he claimed that when he slammed the boot (where he had put the keys) it never locked ... this time it had, causing Bobby to scream: "The other set of keys are in Wales! ARGHHH!" I wouldn't have minded except Bobby was transporting me and my bike back home 5 miles away ... Anyway, way back at the Star at Liverton - our bash pit stop - there was Bass and Yellowhammer on tap, and of course, Yellowhammer was the first choice, that was, until Ingle had marked my card by stating that it was on its last legs and tasted somewhat 'soapy' even though it was as clear as a bell, Bertie. However, other bashers had said that it was pukka, so I 'ad a pint, but after a few sips - realised that Ingle was spot on and returned to the bar to state my case. Now, if you're a local, this would be an automatic change of pints, no questions asked, 'Arry, but seeing as I wasn't and Ingle had already returned his, questions were being asked ... now see clip ...

Forrest's double downdown

Bash pit stop at the Star at Liverton

... I've only just started drinking and they've all departed, leaving me on my lonesome - what do I do, leave my pint - a man like me ...

Downdowns commence at Younder Alderney

 ... and that's the last time I give Mouldy my glass to hold ...

A Barbie Palace

... at Younder Alderney ...

A little gem from Flowery and U Bend

... and their trail through Occombe Valley Woods was good clean running. The long was about 7 miles with a medium and a short for those of dubious stamina. The On Down was the Old Smokey House Inn at Marldon on the ring road and Teign Valley HHH recall this 'pub' well from two previous visits. On the first occasion, Teapot was told to stop the downdowns as three 'eaters' were being disturbed by the noise ... when asked later, the party stated that they were quite happy with the entertainment and hadn't complained. The last time we were there, we were told that we must all go in the back room (again, presumably, so as to avoid nuisance to any eaters) ...

At first glance, the beer seemed good with Greene King Abbot Ale and old faithful Courage Best augmented with a guest ale from Hydes (Manchester) Brewery - Loose Cannon which was what I plumped for ... and it was a good summer pint as well - a pale gold fresh citrus tasting ale ... BUT the price was a staggering £3.40 a pint - which would have been the finish of Pottsie (nearly had a seizure when confronted with a £3.00 tag for Badger at the Thatched Tavern) and many other hardened TVH3 imbibers ... This Shirley is a pint too far, though strangely, South Hams HHH appeared unperturbed, though it was whispered to me from more than one source that SH3 are the 'rich' hash ...

Once again, the hash was consigned to the back room but this proved to be ideal and very cosy indeed and everyone had a high old time and hash grub was laid on.

Horses for courses and pubs for hashes ... but one thing is fairly certain, TVH3 won't be visiting the Old Smokey until the rip-off beer prices are removed, Rodney ...

A truly great evening

... from Younder Alderney and the massive enterprise undertaken by a cast of thousands ... another 'first' by TVH3 as the dashboard cam - so successfully utilised on a Bluebird Bracket (patent pending) last Thursday for the Bash from the Farmhouse Tavern - was hand-held for the ENTIRE long and 43 two minute clips were taken ... as well as HD cam footage of the circle and the ever-reliable Sanyo Xacti present for the downdowns ... I have to go out on the cliffs (every night of the year) with Mr Cruisedog but anticipate a long night assessing the footage from our 3 cams ... had a great time, Smash, Grab and Bog Roll & Archangel ...


Just called Bobby to ask if he knew where it was this evening and he called Smash who, (as I thought) was puzzled that I couldn't find it yesterday (drove down Edginswell Lane THREE times looking, without success) ... righty ho here's how:
Enter Edginswell Lane from the Newton Road (Lidl, Torbay Hospital) and follow the road round up the hill and under the bridge at the top ... continue a few hundred yards along the lane through open country until you get to signs of habitation - a cluster of houses - and there be 'YOUNDER ALDERNEY' - you shouldn't miss it (like I did) as there'll be balloons galore outside and TVH3 signs ... good news: Plenty of parking space for us arranged in a field, Fergie!

I'm really curious to see tonight how on earth I missed it THREE times on Sunday! ON ON until tonight troops ...
