Hope & Anchor, Ball & Mace, Pipe & Slipper
Hope & Anchor are two very important words to a Knight of Moleskine, Spirit and Ale. Hope makes all things possible and our Anchor is the beliefs we hold dear to our hearts, beliefs worth fighting and dying for, but more importantly, beliefs worth living for! While I was away playing music on a Cursillo Weekend, Sir Dayvd of Oxfordshire was enjoying great beer and music at the Hope & Anchor in London. Here is his journal on the adventure:
"After gallivanting, cavorting and general wassailing all week in London and all points of the island (most notably at the Hope & Anchor Pub in North London, where the Clash and the Sex Pistols, amongst others started out, and where I suitably got into a Rugby style melee when a bout of fisticuffs broke out between two of the bands playing in the cellar). This errant Knight decided last Saturday to hang up my Ball and Mace and have an evening of Pipe and Slippers next to the fire in the Great Hall, complete with a strong pint of original Port Stout.
By thunder, you can chew this stuff like tobacco! It's the sort of hoary stuff your great great Uncle would give you when you were six and tell you it would put hairs on your chest and make a man of you, and I tell you, going to first school looking like Big Foot with a Basso Profundo voice lingers long in the memory. So here's to a beer that is as black as the Black Knights underpants and tastes of pure chocolate and malt. And by the way, pass the comb, my pecs need grooming!"
Sir Dayvd "The Punk" of Oxfordshire
Thank you Sir Dayvd for sharing your adventure. Remember, as a Knight of Moleskine, Spirit and Ale, you're Original, Superbly Smooth, often imitated, but NEVER EQUALLED!
