Being The 1st July, 2011

Three delightful ladies, Lynda, Laura and Margaret turned up early.
They ran out of things to talk about so they sang songs before anyone else arrived:
Meet me on the Corner
Leaving on a Jet Plane
Dogsbody was enchanted.

Paul graciously accepted the badge of authority as MC.
Here is the noble countenance that shined upon us:

Why hasn't anybody commented on this post? That must surely be the ultimate indignity.
