Being Friday the 30th of August, 2013 ...

At 19.21hours and 27 seconds precisely people were clamouring at the Guide Hall door awaiting entry.
Actually those people comprised David, Graham and Jo who all did their best to assist in setting up the room ... very many thanks.

Mike, as MC, arrived soon after 8.00pm and expressed surprise at the number of people present.
Indeed, this was a most encouraging evening with a total of 28 bums on seats.

Graham and Jo sang about this confection.

Tony sang from his bestiary.

Here's Reginald.

Paul implored the designer of
this type of bridge to come home.

Mike, accompanied by Mick,
reminded us of a tragic misadventure
in Morecambe Bay in 2004.

Jo's father is a refuse collector.

That foregoing is just a taste of what went on and, hopefully, the quality of what we might continue to expect.

Addendum ...
Ken shares the following piece of intelligence:
Victoria Wood shares her name with Marie Lloyd's real name: (Matilda Alice Victoria Wood).
Not many people are aware of the intelligence of which Ken is custodian.

Being Friday the 23rd of August, 2013 ...

Dogsbody couldn't attend, but Angela reported that it was a good evening, MC-d by Berry.

Paul has aspirations of being a woodworker.

... to the end.

How we huddled round ...

Just popping out to win some spurs, dear.

Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible.

A Pill to Purge Melancholy ...

Discovered at the stall of a wine vendor during a recent festival ...

Being Friday the 16th of August, 2013 ...

More interesting images from the Guide Hall ...

Flowers that will last forever.

Is this a concertina?

Name this famous couple.

Eight participants of The City Folk Club demonstrated that they can have just as much fun as the Brownies and Guides.
Being so depleted in numbers, we all had lots of goes.

Lynda provided the obligatory death by misadventure.
Paul whistled.
Molly, assisted by others, provided an appropriate amount of holiness ... in Latin!
There were two accounts of lost maidenheads.

What else?

Then John Barleycorn he grew a long beard ...

Little boy fishing.

Lighthouse in the harbour
Mountains sweeping down to the sea.

Here are Molly and Connor
in 'Sorry corner'.

Dogsbody was obliged to leave early to catch one of these ...

Oh, Joy!

He thanks everybody for helping to clear up, and hopes that you all arrived home safely ... and in peace.

Being Friday the 9th of August, 2013 ...

There is always something interesting to photograph at the Guide Hall ...

Hello, Funny-face.

Leaving your bagged detritus on Philosopher’s Balcony
does not qualify as taking home your own rubbish!

This was a memorable evening, sensitively chaired by Mr Paul.

There were a number of deaths, beginning with two battery-operated candles ...

We must remember to turn these
off before we put them away.

Holiness was unleashed upon the gathering when Tony gave a delightful rendition of Psalm 23 ...

Surely, there can't be any copyright issues
about this.

Even self-identified heathens knew all the words!

Here's Tony.

The following image of Mando-Rog is included because in all the earlier ones he is either obscured by some infrastructure, or he has a fire extinguisher emerging from his head ...


We had received paranormal intelligence that BeHeld might be attending.
Indeed, they did ...

Left to right: David, Jane, Mick and Roger.

Now, I do not have permission to write this, and I hope that David will approve ...
There is a new EP of BeHeld available for purchase.
It is entitled 'Heart' ...


It will cost you only £3.00 + p&p.
You can buy this by clicking here.

BeHeld finished off the evening with four, (or was it five?) of David's self-penned numbers.
Then they sent us all home, in full assurance that 'it only hurts when you're awake', singing about a better home awaiting in the sky ...

... only we sang it better!

Being Friday the 26th of July, 2013 ...

A goodly gathering for the evening.
Dogsbody remained extraordinarily happy.

No, Yvonne and Mike ...
 this will NOT suffice as a substitute for candles!

Elayne sang about lacrimation.

Leaving a Caribbean island.

Mary Queen of Scots was executed at this site.

Roger introduced a song by declaring:
"Time to open a can of beans and pour the spit in!"
(Not sure of the relevance here.)

Has anyone seen this notorious outlaw?

Paul, Angela and Roger finished off with another fine performance ...

Then we all sang about sunshine before going home in contented silence.
