I'm Off.

To the Dark Continent, that is.

Word reaches me that Muammar is pretty excited about my return this weekend:















As are his virgin bodyguardesses:













Back in ten days or so.

Usual rules apply:-

1. Have the revolution sorted by the time I come home.
2. If I don't come back, avenge my death.
3. Play nice.

If you should think of me, think only this: the poor fucker is beerless.

Witterings From Witney said...

Take care CR. Only one correction to your post - in this 'war' the last thing we do is 'play' nice'!

Bucko said...

Have a gud 'un!

Caratacus said...

Have a good one Captain.

Beerless? Bloody beerless - and he's volunteering??

Goodnight Vienna said...

I too wish you well but why are you doing business with them, CR? I don't get it any more - blame it on a temp of 100.2. Come home safely.

Don't do anything we wouldn't do.

Captain Ranty said...

Thanks all.

GV-cos the boss says so!

James-that is not difficult to comply with in Tripoli.

Caratacus-every one else took a step backwards. I should have remembered that trick from my army days...:)

WfW-I should have put a sarc tag on that word.

The man is right. Gloves off everyone!

I'll drink your share whilst your away. Just to support our brewing industry you understand.

Captain Ranty said...

Most generous Giolla.

How could I possibly refuse such a selfless act?

I was going to drink:

14 gallons of Boddingtons
12 gallons of Kilkenny's
12 bottles of good South African merlot.
4 bottles of gin (Gordons or Bombay)
1 small sherry
1 bottle of water.

And on Sunday....

I'm working on the Gin already - Gordons

Sounds like a holiday to me, after five years of not having one.
Take Care CR

What the fuck are you doing in Libya?

Dodgy taxi-driver provided Whisky is £70 a bottle!

DL,

Cant watch videos here. Internet is shite.

Killem,

My job involves business development in Africa. After 44 years of visiting this continent, it feels more like home to me than the UK. And, incredibly, I am more free here than I could ever hope to be in the UK.

The airlines are a little dodgy. Especially for internal flights: barely any security, cabin lights are not dimmed for take off or landing, and apparently, you dont even need seatbelts. Guy across the aisle from me never strapped in, nor did he bother strapping in his 8 month old son. Scary shit.

CR.
