Being the 13th of June 2008

Friday the 13th? Pah! We laugh in the face of fear and superstition...
A well attended rumbustious evening filled with comely wenches and jocund swains...
O.k. the same bunch of derelicts, drunks & ne'er-do-wells looking for somewhere safe to be until they'er rounded up again and put back in the secure unit....

Oh! How we made our own entertainment as the world crumbled around us...
Here's the list:

Fare Ye Well Dearest Nancy (David)
Banks of Sweet Primroses (Colin)
The Last Thing On My Mind (Les)
Drift From The Land (Eddie)
Love In Vain (Sheena)
