Yee Haw Revisited
Well, I have had complaints that there was a lot left unsaid from my previous blog. Okay, well, lets see, we ate a lovely stew (see Zapped!), we had some spicy prawns, baked veggies, apple pie and cream, and an interesting pre-packed shot called Cowboys. Not too shabby at all.
The bar was well stocked with red & white wine, but my drink of the night was raspberry cordial, lemonade and a splash of vodka. Very nice indeed! And, I only had 3!
After the meal was served we started on round one of the game. We all had our scripts to read, in various terrible accents, and learned a little about our opponents. As the game unravelled, and the alcohol flowed, the laughs grew. It was revealed that the doc was to be thrown out of town and replaced by a young pup, Rowdy had gambling debts and was trying to scheme a way out of them, Miss Forth found the Sheriff (the victim) ugly and didn't want to marry him so bought a ticket for the first stage out of town. The School Marm was doing business with the shrewed Saloon Girl, and the Sheriff had found the gold the Bandito had hidden in the hills, and he was not happy about it! But the shocks of the evening were that Sally Forth and Rowdy were actually married, although he left her the night of the wedding, and Juan was doing a line for the school marm! Hello! Didn't see that one coming!
By the end of round 3 we were told to make our accusations. Bibbi accused Juan the Bandito, after he accused her. After each time she was accused of being in cahoots with Bibbi Gunn, Miss Patience vehemently declared it was purely a business venture, that she was NOT a Madam! Hee hee. Well, in the end, as revealed earlier, Sally Forth was not as sweet and innocent as she looked.
But perhaps the funniest part of the evening is reflected in the attached photos - when the costumes start to come undone, the wigs come off, and the moustaches become detached along with the inhibitions....
