a DEAL IS A DEAL, and I would have not thought as highly of you if you had 
not kept the deal: I do hope after all that booze that you were still 
pissing straight ;-)

Hi Crew,

Some of you may think this is just not possible! :-)

However as absolutely as true as I sit here typing, it is!

My brother-in-law, younger by more than several years and one of the
greatest guys in the world.  Also a very a fine photographer.

We had an agreement for years, "whomever hit the silk first, the remaining
one would buy a bottle of the finest single malt scotch, drink it then pee
on the others grave!"

We even put two one hundred dollar bills into a jar to cover the purchase
that neither of the sisters, our wives, knew we'd done to buy the very best!
Unfortunately he bailed out first! :-(

But a deal was a deal. 

Not long ago I had the good fortune to follow through on our agreement. :-) 

My problem was a visiting grave yard family saw me peeing on his grave and
became quite, one might say, rather carried away about my desecration and
all that nobility crap! Sh-t! He was dead and the best damn friend I ever
had in my life! We had a deal and I wasn't going to break it!

They were annoyed, got someone from the graveyard staff to come and do what
was proper to this person doing this vile thing on an unfortunate person
buried there!

So as usual, some higher than mighty a-s hole arrived and started with the
crap, police etc! I thought, "if only I had saved some, I'd piss on you
right now and give you something to bitch about!" :-) 

So in about two and half seconds I was at him and set him straight, finished
him off with. "F. off mate or I'll call the police for a disturbance of the
peace while I mourn my brother!" Kind of shook him a bit, but he left. 

I'm sure I could hear my brother-in-law Bruce laughing his head off! :-)
He'd have done the same thing for me if the roles were reversed! 

Now that's as true as it gets my friends. Honest! 

I thought it might give some of you a weekend chuckle! :-)
