King William, Sipson, London   2 comments

The landlord and customers at the King William in Sipson were especially helpful with the day’s pub crawl except the landlord kept showing me the wrong places on my maps (even though his verbal descriptions were spot on).

In what turned into a side theme for the day, I patiently explained to several drinkers there that I am no longer a US citizen so my opinion on this week’s US Presidential Election is exactly as valid — if better informed — as theirs.  At the same time, I tried to get anyone to open up about the doom that hangs over this neighbourhood that is targeted as the east end of the proposed third runway at Heathrow.

The bartender was true to his word, though. The beer was the best kept on the day’s rounds and the conversation was the easiest flowing. This may still be the case when the 16th century foundation — and cellar — is shaken by sixty L-1011 landings per hour but you can keep the conversation going if you just SPEAK UP DURING TAKE OFFS.
