Same here.  It's an orgasmic experience every time I watch it.

Clearly, there should be a Grogheads Field Trip to inspect this out.
On the way, we could visit local sites of interest like, oh I don't know, Blenheim, Salamanca, the Somme, and the Normandy beaches?  Just to give us a way to wind down, you know.

Always the gentleman, and gracious host.
Much appreciated, but can you handle a bunch of tired Grogs?  Windy gets pretty carried away, Gus like to clean the bathrooms, and Jarhead loves to start lawsuits.
Then again, Mrs. Bob might enjoy a new crew to play Whack-a-Mole.  You could buy her a new frying pan.

I think you guys should bring her a souvenir pan - we could inscribe everyones name on it. Anyway, the main idea is that you pick me up so that I can go to all those places as well.
