    The Cardinal Sin...!



    Getting drunk on comms...again!

    Yeah...I was...Broke my biggest rule...Last night I got blotto on comms...Hmmm...Sat there with my buddies slowing getting through that bottle of whisky from Christmas...'I'll just another one'...until 5am...I suddenly felt real tired...and then in the morning I wake and think..'Oh man, what did I do last night'...Not a first for me and I don't get aggressive...but...I was giggling...and babbling...and then screaming incessantly like a girl when I was chased...(Thanks to the 3 Spits by the way that eventually helped me at Folkeston after being chased for 15 minutes by a 110 and 109 at wave top height from French point)...

    You know the problem is that its entertainment all night...I meet the UK boys at 9 - 10pm (and that's when I think...'I'll just have the one') and they eventually dwindle down and then the OZ and US boys jump on and I'm on til 5am flying and chatting to them...I have a great time...but...Oh man!...

    Anyway I apologise to all on comms and try not to do it again...

    ...Lew...

    Well that solves the mystery of the squeal we heard on comms yesterday following that Spit on the deck. Though one of my 110 engines was on the blink. And we were in blue comms, so that is some squeal you have there Lew!

    That would not help Colander.

    Lewis would still end the evening being drunk.

    As for me, I wouldn't get a single beer all night

    I use [Ctl] to speak on TS and to set my Prop pitch; so using both and giving my neighbour "an ear-full" at the same time I was told off by the Moderator too "cool it and what was the problem?"
    Apologies all round and "sorry if I swore!" lol.

    I remember once on a Blenny event (with 20+ Blennies taxing to the runway) a certain someone was well into the scotch and anyway Drock ended up taking off without half of his left wing....
