Icebergs on the Thames

OK, not a real Iceberg- but I did drop my G&T on the rocks over the side and the ice took 30mins to melt. Happy New Year to you cruising folk out there. Splice the brain mace, me hearty's. (Hic !)

Greetings and welcome aboard the CF, Captain-Cutlass.

Were we, in Thunder Bay, to spill a GT/Rocks overboard, the ice cubes would bounce, and the tonic freeze instantly.

G'Day and welcome Cap'n C...

But what kinda Pommie puts ice in G&T, especially in the winter? Something suspicious here...

Cheers,

Might be an appropriate thread to mention the notice in the mess of the USS Lexington, Corpus Christi, TX, and for all you Dick and Jane affectionados:

See Dick drink
See Dick drive (sail)
See Dick Die
Don't be a Dick
