    Yes John in the heat of the jungle you have to be careful. Excessive exercise during love making can lead to strains of the back, legs and other bodily parts.

    Though for many the steam wore off rather quickly when they discovered they had been given a present by the ladies.
    One of the lads spent almost three months getting rid of what ever it was.
    The doc told him it was a strain he had never seen before.
    During the Vietnam war, a "special" strain developed known as Saigon Rose, spread throughout the far east by American soldiers on RnR

    Well that scuppered that well known song of the era 'Rose, Rose, I love you with an aching heart'

    We paid off this ship in London and there were 8 of us at Euston station with 8 squawking parrots waiting for the Liverpool train. One of the AB's named Danny was from Glasgow but lived in Bootle. He considered himself to be the parrot expert but his ears were always streaming with blood after his parrot had bitten big chunks off them. When we got on the train we made for the bar where we began talking to a very well dressed woman wearing a fur coat. After a few drinks Danny thought it was a good idea to take his parrot out of the cage and put it on the woman's shoulder. The woman was not amused, she became even less amused when the parrot began pulling the fur from her coat. Danny told her the parrot obviously liked her and was only playing. We arrived in Liverpool, 8 drunken seamen, 8 squawking parrots and a bedraggled woman with the shoulder of her fur coat missing.

    Lois, that sounds like a very normal paying off day for any merchant seaman going home.
    Wonder what happened to the lady?
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    After a couple of docking bottles had been opened she forgot about the parrot and her coat. Nearly falling off the train when we arrived in Liverpool the woman who was so well dressed and elegant a few hours before was last seen staggering to the taxi rank carrying her shoes and singing We all live in a yellow submarine. A good end to the trip.

    The rumour went around that Vietnam Rose was an early application of 'germ warfare' injected into the r & r centres in the far east and there were more victims in the Yankee armed forces due to this infection than there were with bomb or bullet!

    Hey Louis
    I may have to continue this with a Trip down the East Coast , one that also brings such memories back to me .
    I will have to look at sitting and trying to do that at some stage !
    I do not write very well , the reason i dont out up my memories ! Oh Dear! LOL
    However some of the Memories i think may not appeal to all here, as they would contain some really shocking tales! True mind you Too True! Eeeeeek!!!

    Like one i had posted many Moons ago about a time i did a silly thing with a mate of mine , it was said by one person here ( he sadly has since passed on) that i was posting it for want of bragging and it was downright disgusting! Well what can i say, yes it was a sad and sorry tale but it was all true. I ended up deleting that of course. So you see that is why i guess i never went ahead with my Stories!
    Cheers
