The load of sand.

A true story that happened to me, A long time ago now.

The load of sand.

I was off work on Christmas holidays, It was the day before Christmas eve.
And John down the road asked Tom my friend next door to bring him a load of sand from the sand pit by the sea.

Tom had a grey ferguson twenty diesel tractor and a ten by six foot trailer,
Tom asked me to go with him for the drive and to help with the sand too.
I took my fathers shovel in the trailer with Toms.

We got our load and came back to Johns house, The trailer had no tipping gear,
So we had to empty the sand with our shovels. In the mean time John came out
from the kitchen with two cups and a bottle of what i thought was water, But it was potteen or illegal home made whisky like mountain dew.

When we were Finished emptying the load John gave each of us a full cup of the stuff.
Now none of us were drinkers John had never drank or smoked in his life and had no
idea as to the strength of the potteen.Neither Tom or i had ever tasted the stuff either.

Tom dident like the taste of it and only drank a few sips of it, Donkey here of course wouldent give it to say and finished the cup in a long drink tough man of course.
Everything was fine for a while and Tom drove the tractor up the road flat to the board
with the tough man sitting on the mudguard next to him, It was only a short drive to our Houses,.

We were going well now after the drink, Nothing was a problem we could do anything.
We came into our yard in a cloud of smoke and dust, I jumped off the tractor and reached into the trailer for the shovel, My Father was standing at the doorway,
And i got the shovel and fell back in the flat of my back on the ground,
My Father wanted to know what happened and i said i slipped, Slipped how are you i was as drunk as the lord couldent see a thing everything was going round in circles and me with it.

I could just make out our side gate in the fog ha jees tis great stuff, Blind as i was i managed to make a very wavy line to the gate with my Father looking after me i dont
think i was fooling him atall. I tell you it took me about two hours of walking around
our back field before i was sober enough to go in home, Nobody said anything.
Tom was not seen for the rest of that day, Good job he dident drink the lot.

Lucky we werent killed or kill someone else,,,hick,,,hick,,great stuff.
Havent touched it sense and do not intend to either. (You should give it a go. lol.)

Its clear as water and tastes something like vodka and whiskey mixed, And will blow your head off, In Ireland people who keep greyhounds for racing use it to rub in to the dogs muscles to warm them
up, Before a race.If it is made properly it is good but if not it could kill you, Great stuff ,,,.
