All right, at the request of someone whose name I won't mention (right, John C.?:), I have finally gotten around to putting up the fake brick wallcovering. Now, there's a long story behind this...it relates to my own home and recent renovations we've done. Removing the horrible fake brick wallcovering from the kitchen is not something we've done yet but I promise you that once we do, I'm taking it over to John's house and leaving it on his front step. Since he is so fond of it. (BTW, John, where do you live anyway?) But all in-jokes aside, this is where people used to leave their comments about Rangy Lil's, and sooner or later they got up on the wall, because I never bothered to get a proper guestbook. There were more comments which I received but which didn't make it to the wall...then we got a new computer, then we moved, then we took a hiatus from the website. So these are all kinda old but nostalgia makes me keep 'em around. Now that we're back tending bar, I 've set up a proper guestbook. P.S. Update: I finally did tear down that fake brick stuff at the old house but could I get hold of John C.? Noooooo..... :-)

December 28, 1996 - Comment: Couldn't agree with you more, Lil, in regards to the independence and freedom of actually going to the bar, not to pick up men but to "adopt" a place of your own...I am impressed with the amount of work that has gone into your hp...it's one of the best I have ever seen...John C...lol...poor boy sounds bored, however, criticism is good! I'll be back.
