Being Friday the 18th of May, 2012 ...

So, what did happen in Dogsbody's absence?
 ... apart from this:

Lynda and Angela took charge of infrastructure and logistics, while Mike was cajoled into being MC at short notice.
Thank you to them, and to everyone else who undoubtedly contributed to the evening's proceedings.

Angela diligently documented the following musical doings:

So, what's a 'Simmon Tree'?

The American Persimmon (diospyros virginiana) bears fruit that is quite edible to humans, provided you don't eat them prematurely. The astringent tannins in an unripe Persimmon will turn your mouth inside-out for a small eternity.
You have been warned!
