I took this picture with my phone** from the “Chairman’s Stool” looking slightly to the right. I’ve written about this regular meeting place of the Usual Suspects and, as they say, it’s a place “where everybody knows your name”.

If you plan to be in the area, let me know. I’ll give you directions and buy you a beer (or one of the fine whiskeys that the Bar Chairman makes sure is on hand).

** “Took this picture with my phone” are words that I found comical to write. I remember when my grandmother had a party line, fer Chrissakes.


  1. If there is whiskey, then I am there.

  3. Bou, you give me way too much credit. I e-mail the photo to myself and go from there, and being able to do that amazes my sorry ass.

  5. *sigh* …. I don’t have the first fcking clue how to email photos to myself from my phone.

    Nice, really, to be shown up by the old-timers.

    Damnation, Jimbo.

  9. Your grandmother? Hell I remember when WE had a party line…..which was much nicer than what we’d had previously which was NO PHONE. The phone company refused to provide service b/c there weren’t enough potential customers out in our neck of the woods. I was a teenager before enough of our neighbors agreed to suscribe & the phone company finally ran the phone lines. Good times.

    You should be able to hook your phone up via USB & move your pics over btw.

  11. Looks nice and warm. I had a place like that in Statesboro Georgia back in the 60’s. I bet they have great selections on the juke box?

  16. Cliffy I did not see any KING OF BEERS/

  17. You don’t see the King Of Beers because my friend Paulie ( The Bud King ) does not allow just anyone to see them let alone drink them !!!

    Maybe next time he will allow them to be shown !!!

  18. That’s funny, you took this picture with your phone and I had to wait to log on to my pc (after reading your post on my cell phone a week ago) because images are turned off, just so I could check out the pic of Da Post and your MAD picture taking skillZ. Yes, I was that curious. Pretty good on both counts!

    Do they allow women at this Shangri-la?

    BTW, I couldn’t find your email addy so I’m dropping a link here to the details of Pelosi’s demand to have full time access to a large luxury plane almost the equivalent to Airforce 1. Details here:

    I love your Pelosi/Hillary posts. when I read the news I envisioned Pelosi instant messaging Hillary from the planes state of the art state room.

  19. Tell me where!! I would like to buy you a drink, I don’t know if we ever met, but I am a life long buddy of your cousin Gary (My favorite A.P.)!
