Being Friday, the Tenth Day of the Eleventh Month, 2017 ...

We remembered ...




Laurie brought along this poem, of unknown authorship, read by Bryan ...



Lynda sang an old Shaker song ...




Not downhearted, thanks to Stuart we went home in peace.
Our feet were guided by ...

An obscure pictorial account of Fridays 1st and 8th September, 2017 ...

Yes, we are back in the Guide Hall with its brand new kitchen ...


The refurbishment took 6 weeks ...

and the paint is still wet!


We now have use of a duet of gleaming kettles ...


Being harvest-time ...

... the bearded barley, to glad the heart of man.

Ken sang of a well-known fragrance ...


Derek took his chance ...



Lynda remembered a capital city ...

... as the lights go down.
I'll remember Dublin City ...

Laurie came along with a friend called Roland ...


Roland played a march in celebration of the Dorset Militia ...

Actually, it sounded more like a Morris dance!

Then Laurie took us on a railway journey ...

This train at Bournemouth West station
is known as 'The Slow & Dirty'.

Here are Roger and Mick ...




What was that they sang about vestal virgins?



Mike reminded us of Saturday matinees at the cinema ...

Kiss my ass, Kimo Sabe, I've bought a boat!

So, it's back-to-normal operation, hopefully, for the rest of the year.

Please keep that music coming.

Being Friday the Twenty-Fifth Day of August, 2017 ...

This was our final evening at our temporary venue.
Our occupation of Chidham Village Hall has proved very satisfactory, and thanks to everyone who ventured out into the rural province, could be described as having been a success.

We even attracted a trio of local dignitaries.

Paul considered the weather ...

Tomorrow may rain ...

Bryan related yet another paranormal encounter ...


We do worry about Bryan!

Howard embarked on a whaling expedition ...

She capsized our boat and we lost five men.

Ken pursued the movie theme further ...

Do not look in the basement!

We departed after dancing a polka in company ...

Y-er safer off Cape Horn!

IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

Yes, our rural expedition is now over.
Very many thanks to everyone who came along to support the club in Chidham.

From Friday 1st September we will be re-occupying our usual venue: The Guide Hall, complete with new kitchen!

Chidham #3; Friday the Eighteenth Day of August, 2017 ...

Another successful evening at our temporary home was superbly MC-d by Paul.

The usual suspects arrived in good time, and we were able to commence proceedings at 20.03 hours, precisely.

Ken sang about his desire for a lady of generous proportions ...

"Give me the fat lady."

"Fool!" said Ken.
"I sang about this cooking utensil ...
