I shall report any undocumented workers/illegal immigrants for the following reasons:

If they displease me.
If they fail to make a decent effort to speak English.
If their accent is so broad as to hinder communication.
If they make eye contact without bowing their heads.
If they fail to adopt the appropriate subservient posture when serving me or members of my party.
If they speak in a language other than English within earshot.
If I detect any insincerity on their behalf.

If they please me and I have pleasant meal, I may offer a small gratuity.

Good luck with that. Let us know how that works out for you.

Well, Biggun, it was a pleasant evening. The staff performed their duties admirably. The food was good and generous portions were served. The only thing to mire the evening was the party sat adjacent to me. The gentleman deemed it necessary to wear a hat indoors, contrary to social etiquette. Also, his morbidly obese wife was rather obnoxious, with the table manners of a primate.

what would this forum be without the General? You remind me of Simon Cowell.

Thank you for your kind remarks, LuvntheSouth.

I do try to make a difference.

Being an officer of the Dragoon Guards, I say what I like, and I bloody well like what I say.

Regards

General Sir Banastre Tarleton

Oh don't worry General, the silly lady hasn't gone far...and no she's not neglecting her duties as a "housewife". You'd be surprised how hard it is for me to catch a break to shoot the breeze online. I have 3 babies, one is in a body cast right now. It's really not so easy.

Well the correct term would be a hip spica cast, however most people generally don't know what I am speaking of when I say that.

I'm sorry to hear that,LuvntheSouth.
Is that to fix a congenital disorder?

I hope the youngster be out of that cast very soon, and will grow hale and hearty in the years to come.

You know, a young fellow could do much worse than join the Cavalry. With his cutlass in his hand and wind in his face, astride his faithful steed, charging into battle. Ahh, the smell of the livery stable, the glow of the farrier's forge, the sight of your panic-stricken dismounted enemy as you slash at them with your cutlass. Why only last week I slew an enemy soldier by a cut which nearly cleft his skull asunder.

I digress, I wish your bairn a speedy recovery.

General Sir Banastre Tarleton, 1st Baronet, GCB.

Fix - no. Improve - yes. It's called arthrogryposis multiplex congenita. His specific form is amyoplasia.

Trust me General, if he ever walks- we'll be ecstatic, and much more if he ever mounts a horse independently.

But it is not in our hands... we will see for sure one day.

Please excuse my cognitive dissonance, but I refuse to acknowledge any anachronisms.

Let's hope that the surgeon's hands are skillful.

Our MO is something betwixt a woodcutter and a butcher. I saw the bally fellow cleave old Algy's leg off in the time it took for me to refill my pipe!

I can see you being one of those Revolutionary War reenactivists.

I sure hope old Algy was drunk. My son's surgery took 10 hours and thank GOD for morphine and valium afterward.

No, he was only on those for 2 weeks. His operation was February 17, and he spends 12 weeks total in the cast. We only give him ibuprofen once in a while. No need for rum, he's managing quite well now. Maybe his mother and father need rum . . .

Don't know why Bristol closed. I miss the guacomole and the flan. Is the menu the same in Kingsport as Bristol?

Somebody told me a new place reopened in Bristol in the same location with delicious food. I'll be checking it out next week. I love Chile Rellanos- yum-o.
