POWWOW FROM THE CHAIRMAN
In these troubled times I'm grateful to Mr. Jim Dawes for reminding us all of the things in life that really matter. He writes: In your obituary of Little Richard you said that "Awop-bopa-loobop-alop-bopbop" was the closing line of his hit Tutti Frutti. That was of course the opening line. As any fule kno (sic), the closing line was Awop-bopa-loobop-alop-bamboom.
So it was with the correct lyric that I hummed my way happily towards Henley Bridge for our first Club walk for some four months. Foolishly, I forgot to check with Janet where to park for free in Henley, so I had to stump up £7, (ouch), for just 4 hours alongside the river. But oh, what a great walk, the scenery and of course the meeting up with rambling friends that I hadn't seen for so long. And then the finale alongside Old Father Thames who as the song says, "Doesn't seem to worry, he doesn't seem to care". I shall take a leaf out of his book.
Just remember folks, that happiness is like honey, you can't spread even a little of it without getting some on yourself.
Happy Autumn Rambling,
Tom Harrison, Chairman.
