ANOTHER PUB TICKER CRASHES THE WAKE – IT’S THE BIG TREND OF 2022

A lovely day today chatting American politics, obscure Scottish roads and curry with my 2019 Pub Man of the year and her husband.

Dave and I agreed (a rarity) than BRAPA’s blog is on an all-time low, and I admitted that I nick stuff freely off his blog because he’s too busy upgrading mascots to notice.

His recent post on gatecrashing a wake is a classic,

but he nicked that idea off me. I did that in 2018 (Middleton) and 2020 (Rowen), and even gatecrashed a Dulwich wedding in 2017. My book on the topic “Getting that tick, whatever it takes, gatecrashing pet baptisms, weddings and wakes” is available from Amazon via my webshop.

A second tick in Limekilns on the Firth of Forth allowed me the immense pleasure of getting a pint at a private event,

cos as Si notes “I believe pubs should be for everyone, as in PUBlic!” .

The Bruce Arms has no obvious sign of a wake as I enter right, but the 1950s crooning tunes, doilies, and everyone dressed in black, but that’s standard form for most pubs in Spalding, so how was I to know.

At the bar, a really lovely barperson whispers “It’s a wake, I’ll bring your beer out to you“.

And she does, and I apologise and she says “Don’t worry, they’re cool*”, which I doubt.

Having been banished outside, I can’t bring you many anecdotes about the wake, so here’s a chart of the Approaches to Finnart from the Gents.

  1. Jean Michael Celery (Seri) announcement coming soon 😄. Your wake sounded easier than my wake (NOT that it is a competition).

  2. I went to a wake nine days ago but sensibly it was in the Lounge of the two roomed Crown at Hyde Lea.
    It was for the 71 year old Chairman of Stafford and Stone Branch from 1978 to 1981 who the other Mudgie will know from his few years living in Stockport some time later.
