A Little Quip from Mick the Grip, No. 84.

I've just been doing some thinking,

And a thought popped into my head,

If you don't have a drink when you're living,

You'll have a hard job when you're dead!

A little quip from Mick the Grip. No. 83.

Through years of experience I found that air offered less resistance than earth.

A Little Quip from Mick the Grip No.82

Not a quip today - a quote.  

How straight it flew - how long it flew, It clear'd the rutty track, and soaring, disappeared from view beyond the bunker's back.   A glorious, sailing, bounding drive, that made me glad I was alive.
And down the fairway, far along, it glowed a lonely white. I played an iron, sure and strong, and clipp'd it out of sight.  And spite of grassy banks between, I knew I'd find it on the green.
