2023 - October- Dave and Marge.
It's getting warm.
You guys n gals know I don't 'do' warm :/
And roadworks, groan, How we all love road works.
Despite the planets best efforts, I made it on time. Yay ?
To be greeted by Dave's a/c cooled man cave. Bliss.
He was trying out a new pair of speakers he has his eyes on.
Open baffles at that.
You know the movie, 'What lies beneath' ?
Well, don't ask 'What lies behind' :D
Yes none of us will admit to those horrors.
Lunch was Pizza followed by cakes, and a cheese cake.
Someone brought a bottle of Bourbon for the host.
Ohhhh so much Yummmmm all in one afternoon.
Sadly at the last minute several couldn't attend due to possible illness's.
I would like to publicly thank those people that understand that it is better for the group as a whole to stay away if their not 100% well.
We ended up with about 8 people I think. A nice cosy little GTG.
A BIG thank you to Marge and Dave for inviting us into their home and feeding us.
It's almost time we start looking for hosts for next year.
So if you have a spare Saturday, please let our Club Secretary know :)
