Mogbus Annual Jolly Day Out 2014

This years annual Mogbus  trip took us to Scarborough on the Yorkshire coast. It was an early start and our driver, (HA!) Goblin, was up with the slugs birds, polishing the bus. He did us proud by cheating passing his driving test, enabling us all to have a terrifying lovely ride. The test examiners Weasal and Barnabas were so mortified impressed by his driving, that they decided to join us as they had passed out on our journey.

Jaffa the conductor, collected the backhanders tickets to get on the bus and Puddy our Health and Safety bore specialist, examined the wreck bus to make sure it was safe. (Hahaha!)

“Are we there yet”? was frequently shouted at the driver, who had a few hand signals of his own that I don’t recall seeing in the Highway Code. It took a surprisingly long time to get there, dew to the number of pit stops along the way, but we did eventually arrive and an excited bus load of anipals rushed to the beach, embarrassing charming all the locals with their rude gestures delightful behaviour. Here are a few ridiculous lovely pictures for you to laugh at enjoy over a nice bottle of gin cup of tea.

#PowWow 2014

*Peace on the Prairie*

 

There was a strange sort of calm across the prairie and the moon  was full and bright. You could hear the sound of buffaloes parping grazing and coyotes  howling in the distance, a perfect evening for revitalising the soul.

Totum

 

Fortunately anipals, don’t care about things like that, so when the cranky  WildThingFoxyLady arrived gal lumping galloping across to the camp fire, they had with them a vat pan of baked beans specially thrown together prepared with any old rubbish tender beans in a radioactive tomato sauce. Everyone enjoyed a huge plateful and some folks Mr Pie and Jaffa went back for seconds. From then on, they was a rootin and a tootin all night. Almost put the fire out.

 

It was the annual #powwow 2014 gathering of anipals all dressed as idiots cowboys and Indian coming together as fellow brethren, for a right good knees up cultural get together. Dogs, cats, turtles, birds, no end of peculiar lovely anipals getting drunk breaking bread and wind with each other and passing the nip pipe of  peace around.

Songs were sung, games were played and in the nearby saloon a few folks joined in a game of strip poker. The Sheriff and his men were useless excellent at keeping the peace, being drunk watchful all evening and taking it in turns to read the good book to those unconscious folks in need.

The camp settled down to a good nights snoring & parping sleep all gathered around the camp fire, ending another ridiculous wonderful annual Powwow adventure.

In Search of the Golden Tankard

All aboard! All aboard! shouted the captain of *The Scab*. The cut-throat crew staggered rushed onto the ship, fighting for a place at the bar front of the ship. The first one to spot Barnacle Bills island gets a knuckle sandwich bag of gold, shouted the first mate and first drink from the golden tankard.

The Scab

The Scab

The Golden Tankard was known to have the magical power of never running dry of rum and beer, which was the dream of every old soak sea-dog that had sailed the seven seas. Most of the crew had only been on a pedalo cargo boat, delivering coal fine goods around the world, so this was the adventure of a lifetime and a chance to get plastered rich.

Vast amounts of food and drink were hoisted aboard and within the hour, The Scab set sail with a soft and useless fierce and manly crew. The Scab sailed out of the harbour and everyone threw up started to sing in a nautical way and dance Ha! the sailors hornpipe.

Twas on the second day that someone shouted are we there yet? “There she be” and the crew jumped into the lifeboats and headed for shore,trying not to listen to the mercats racket songs and the snapping crocodiles. As the boats landed, dozens of sad old pirates stormed the island and fought their way to the cave full of old washing. There they found the Golden Tankard on top of a pile of treasure. A jolly good party was had by all, with many a Yo-Ho-Hos and several dozen bottles of rum.

Easter Bonnet Pawade 2014

 

What a wonderful event this years Easter Bonnet Pawade 2014 was, with dozens of anipals in their ridiculous glorious Easter Bonnets. What imagination went into some of the hats, with little rabbits, chicks, flowers and all sorts of delicious creatures festooning their heads. Congratulations to everyone who entered.

The day was sunny and bright, just the sort of weather for our annual knees up Easter bonnet competition. There were lots of delicious nibbles, glasses of Champagne and great excitement all round, as the contestants eagerly awaited the old soaks judges. The atmosphere was electric, with cameras flashing and rounds of applauds for all. Everyone took their turn staggering down the catwalk as the judges were legless scrutinising every single bonnet and taking bribes care to choose the most colourful and lucrative creatively designed head apparel. They deliberated, cogitated, digested, fell asleep, and at length chose the fifteen semifinalists.

 

Here they are in no particular order in all their glory.

The task of finding the winner and runners up was now paramount for the judges. They stuffed their faces, took a little more sustenance, settled down,for a snooze, and after what seemed like hours of exhausting decision making, and three bottles of nip port, they nailed the final six.

2014 Easter Bonnet Parade final six.

A big *WELL DONE!* to everyone, the turnout was superb as were the bonnets. A huge thank you too must be given to the judges, when they sober up for their time and effort. Snork! All there is left to say now is, I look forward with despair, to next year for yet another mind boggling display of Easter bonnets. Thank you one and all.
