CHAT FROM THE CHAIR
At last we've got Brexit done! So Colin and I celebrated by playing all our old gramophone records of "Songs That Won The War"; "I'm Going to Get Lit-up When the Lights Go On In London", "There'll Be Bluebirds Over The White Cliffs of Dover", (the American Walter Kent, (appropriate surname), made his first visit to Dover nearly 50 years after he penned the melody where he presumably discovered that Bluebirds don't exist here?). And of course we sang "Lily Marlene" and "Roll Out The Barrel", both tunes that we nicked from the Hun, (as we used to call them in the days before political correctness took hold). Why should the Devil have all the best tunes I asked myself? But now we must get on with the more serious business of rambling to shake out those remaining Euro cobwebs and enjoy our very own British Spring sunshine.
We had a nice pause on my recent walk at the Velo-Life cafe in Warren Row where we were made welcome in spite of our muddy boots. However I was surprised to be told that the nasty neighbour who had tried to get the cafe shut down had moved away. Success!
Have a great time in Brittany, but just remember that the common French expression "Nous avons besoin de la sagesse normande" does not translate as "We have need of Norman Wisdom"
Happy Rambling Folks,
Tom Harrison, Chairman
