    I decided to check the Bistro security cam, and it looks like the lemur and friends have taken over and are doing well.

    Make sure the BottlePee traps are set so we don't get trespassed at The Bistro!

    Maria tries to sneak her Aussie friend into the Bistro, but security has him removed. Maria enters alone and gets drunk with the lemurs.

    Peter comes strolling into the bistro, looking all tanned and fit^H^H^Hlike someone working on his Summer 2020 project. Ah well. Summer is over. Felt the autumn air hit me this morning on my way to work after summer vacation. This was the shortest tennis summer in.. many years. Only one tournament played.

    I played generations doubles with Emma, we lost directly - 0-6, 6-7 (5). We had a 5-1 lead in the second set... But still Emma managed to look like she hasn't done anything except playing tennis the whole year (she hadn't touched a tennis racket since last summer). Won her singles match against a good player 7-5 6-3 after a long 2.5 hour match, and then lost next round against the second seed. But good tennis anyway. Hoping to find some time (and someone to play with) for some tennis for me the coming indoor season. Starting to feel the urge for it again (and my back feels better).

    [​IMG]

    The week before that tournament we had a nice visit in Båstad look at the WTA tournament though (while Emma was a an ice hockey camp). Got to watch Sara Errani, Angelique Kerber and the winner Laura Siegemund (now that was one ripped player!) - and many others. Fantastic summer weather at the same time!

    Anyway, I think we should celebrate that Winter Is Coming now with some free drinks. Umm.. Ah! Yes! Jägermeister shots for all!

    ^Congrats....what a nice summer^
    Jägermeister, jaaa!
    Summer heat is subsiding for you already....You lucky Båstads. It is still hot and humid for most of the rest of us.
    Nice update.

    Sentinel's ill-begotten booty, his personal Bistro eggplant supply from his international eggplant trafficking empire, is now overflowing from the Bistro warehouse, as ILC has not been making his favorite eggplant dishes recently. The Pablo Escobar of eggplant trafficking is hungry and feverish. Consequently, the lemur has invited Alla to come over and teach us how to make eggplant caviar.


    Fellow Latvian, Ernests Gulbis, also came by to teach "Ernests' Money Forehand", and a condor sitting in the corner was interested, but everyone else listened to Alla.

    Alla returns for another cooking lesson. The lemur, LPV, and the rest of the patrons miss ILC's specialties.


    The drunk, lonely condor is still learning the Gulbis forehand, and the now equally drunk Ernests is being taught by the condor to fly.

    Andrea discusses her family history with Pilsner Urquell before downing a few pitchers with Lucie.


    The lemur brings by another pitcher of beer to Lucie and Andrea in the Bistro locker room. They just keep dancing until Andrea blows a kiss to the lemur.

    Alla needs more mushrooms for her recipe, so my shaman friend and I check the hidden realms of the Bistro garden for the fly agaric mushrooms. Unfortunately, there are reindeer hoof prints where the mushrooms once were.

    LPV, the lemur, and everyone else are now flying with Gulbis and the condor after enjoying Alla's previous batch of fly agaric appetizers. I fly by Lucie in the sky and exchange a high five as she passes by.

    After enjoying Alla's fly agaric mushroom recipe, Lucie made a rope and pulley contraption to ring bells as she flew across the sky on her own mental power.

    Today, I saw a headline saying something like: Tokyo is about to be hit by Typhoon Malakas

    I always knew @malakas was a tad tempestuous, but this .... ;)

    Malakas and her friend Marcos have not been allowed back in the Bistro since his horrifying assault on his personal Fischer VT Pro 98 paint jobs.

    Nina and boyfriend Leo DiCaprio will ride and do selfies while screaming, "We're on top of the world!".

    After Craig Ferguson quit his talk show and fired Secretariat, the horse has been hanging out in the Bistro, getting drunk with the lemur.

    After passing out in the Bistro lounge, Secretariat dreams about his trip to New York City...

    Natalia Vodianova runs into the Bistro, covered in colorful dust. Clouds of the dust envelope the Bistro. She asks Sentinel if he would like to join her run, but he says he just wants to drink his chocolate milkshake and watch tennis for now.

    The lemur and I jump up and say we'll join her. She laughs and says, "A half-block to the nearest bar like last time? Okay, come along."

    I was once asleep on a Finnish line at the end of a trip to Helsinki, but the Swedish girl I was with woke me up while laughing, and she told me that the ship was headed back to Stockholm. Somebody at the Bistro would wake me up, I hope, if the Stoli truck was about to leave.

    Had I known you in my days as a Fischer rep, I would have kept my spare racquet bags to stow my private stock of Stoli for emergency replenishment. Will a bottle from my Tecnifibre nine-pack be a suitable substitute???

    The Technifibre bag is an acceptable substitute, as long as the Stoli is genuine. I would like to demo some of the Technifibre racquets from Fischer molds.

    The lemur and I pick some fly agaric mushrooms from the Bistro garden.


    Alla, realizing that we are quite hungry with the absence of ILC, shows us some good fly agaric mushroom recipes and makes lunch.

    The Bistro is empty, except for the lemur, LPV and myself. ABBA plays on a continuous loop over the Bistro sound system, and we are too drunk to figure out how to turn it off.


    The ceiling fan is languidly spinning alone, as ILC and Dedans are nowhere to be seen.


    Marloes Horst walks in with a big bag of quality Dutch weed. We decide to ride the ceiling fan and discuss our dreams. LPV is still having flashbacks about his clandestine anti-pirating operations off the coast of Somalia, and the lemur dreams about mangoes every night. I dream about Stolichnaya, and Marloes dreams that she is not getting high on a ceiling fan with a drunk kitten, lemur, and Mike Bulgakov talking about their dreams.

    Thanks !
    Alla is Great as they say. Alla Ho Akbar !
    The potato cutlets with cheese look scrumptious.

    We have something fantastic in India called Aloo ki Tikki. Long back, every evening a man would go around with his large frying pan, giving it hot to buyers. He would hit the side of large pan with his ladle to let everyone know he was walking by. Today that tradition has gone. Maybe peoples' tastes have changed.
