Being The 28th day of October, 2011 ...

Disaster struck!

Please understand that the evening was enjoyable, (as usual,) and orchestrated by Berry in an unpredictable fashion.
Twenty people turned up, including four new faces whom we welcomed warmly, (as usual.)
We performed lots of songs and music, (as usual.)
Ken said lots of words, (as usual.)

"So what was the catastrophe?" you rightly ask.
Allow me to explain ...

I seem to have left my Diary of Doings at the Guide Hall.
I recall that Paul kicked off splendidly with She Moved Through the Fair, accompanied by ethereal Roger.
We finished with Your Cheatin' Heart - full cast led by Berry.

What happened in between is a bit of a blur.
Never fear:

We'll understand it all by-and-by ...

Addendum#1, 02/11/11:

In advance of my retrieval of  my Diary of Doings, Berry offered a comment about the evening's happenings that is worthy of being 'up-front' on this post:

"I would remind DS&W that we were very fortunate to have some superb turns and some unexpected visitors from Brighton. They spoke well of our club atmosphere and deserve our thanks."
Indeed, these visitors deserve our gratitude, but Sid, (he of the commanding voice,) came from Newton Abbot, via Brighton.

It was a great evening, and Berry done good!

Do you always over-react and employ Hollywood-style hyperbole? "Disaster"? Nay, lad: a disappointment, an inconvenience, an aggravation possibly, but, compared to a Turkish earthquake, or a roof-fall in a Welsh mine, not a "disaster". We really should find you something useful to do with which to occupy your time, and get your life in perspective.

I do declare ...
Even more words!

Words? You'd be lost without them, chum! Would you prefer your would-be commentators to be silent? Then try this: ____ ______ _ __ ___________ _____ __ _ ________.

Now it seems to me that this could be a deliberate act of obscuration. {I'll look that up now}. Close enough. Yes a ploy to cover up the fantastic beauty of the evening made possible by an avalanch of errors on the part of the MC who it was seen could not count or spell. Thankyou everyone for all your superb contributions. Do come again and next time bring a camel!
I would remind DS&W that we were very fortunate to have some superb turns and some unexpected visitors from Brighton. They spoke well of our club atmosphere and deserve our thanks.
The feedback on the evening so far has been encouraging. I will go there again!

Points taken, Berry.
This post will be updated when I have recovered 'the little black book'.
You done good, my friend.
