Thanks. :) I'm planning to post a "How to obtain your own Lemon Fool badge" topic (once my head stops hurting).

I'm too old for this drinking lark
What time did you leave ?
I think I got the 2248 train, based on my being in my flat and not on a bench at Paddington

Well I didn't actually note the time but I have several clues:

1. A "Telegram" message I sent at 0015 claims I was still at the Clachan.
2. According to Google maps it takes 19 minutes to walk from the Clachan to Charing X
3. National Rail advertises a train from Charing X to Orpington at 0050 arriving at 0131
4. My Waze drive history says I set off from Orpington at 0153 and arrived at Tunbridge Wells at 0224
5. My browser history proves I was in my bedroom-office at 0304.
6. My last trace of activity was at 0315.

So in conclusion I believe I left between 0015 and 0031. Let's say 0023. :)

Chris

I don't recall the doors being closed at all; and when I dashed in to procure a cheeky half of Wimbledon I was not refused!

I thought they didn't serve half pints!
I'm blaming that final pint-not-half for my bad hangover

I'd be interested in a "How did you manage to create the personalised Lemon Fool badges and is this a marketing opportunity?" topic.

Strange thing these heads. Mine also hurts.

We left after closing time and I would appear to have posted on here after Midnight. From where I've no recollection!

I see that the badge provider has now replied, so I'll take a look to see what he has written.

I recall the doors were shut when I needed to avail myself of their facilities. The bar staff told me where to go ( ;) ) and I can now understand the smell that was apparent most of the evening and I'm not talking about aftershave.

Two cheers for the ever helpful Mr Behind the Line Bulgaria and the Spanish guy. We forgot to get them to sign up to the new Fool.

It was I believe during your attempted urinary availment that I made my successful visit to the bar. I think maybe they closed up shop in stages. I do recall being fleet of foot. C.

I'm glad that I left at a respectable hour to catch my train. Congratulations on your Lemon Fool badges, Chris. I shall preserve mine with care.

I'm afraid that I was unable to master the art of using my smart phone while holding a glass. I did put a picture of the outside of the Clachan on my facebook page, which included Chris and the Bouncer discussing the glass which I kicked over and broke. I blame Pink Dalec for hiding from my camera.

Good to see you all. Roll on the next occasion.

Thanks Terry. I shall do the same. They can only be a bonus for new Lemon Fool socialites to find us, as I believe they were for our bluedonkey yesterday.

By the way I forgot to ask, how did you and Mel discover you were in the same secret club before the badges were deployed? AFAIK you'd never met before?
