Friday July 16th 2021.

Despite it being a relatively quiet night (in numbers only),the half wit running the proceedings managed to run very late. Edna informed us that Mike Hawkins had planted his face into the patio slabs and wouldn’t be able to join us. She could have at least tried not to laugh. Not a bad thing I suppose; when you’re young and you fall down everyone laughs and gives you a kick, old folk “have a fall” and everyone is concerned.

T Gwyn was telling us about Orig, a wrestler from S Wales with much ensuing conversation.

Gaffer was in sparkling form. In his first song, he referred to tourists as “haemorrhoids”, “they come down in bunches and are a pain in the arse”. “Boring Bodmin” – a timeless classic followed.

Maureen, always a welcome visitor, sang “The day we went to Rothsay O” in Scots dialect with her Canadian/Geordie accent, complete with a whoop at the end of the song.

This week’s points to ponder :-

If a man has an opinion deep in a forest where no woman can hear, is he still wrong?

Who thought it a good idea to put an “s” in “lisp”?

Gwyneth took us back to the days of Z Cars; most of the assembled muppets could recite the entire cast (although they can’t remember why they went in the kitchen).

The “audience” are as much a part of the club as the turns, and it was good to see the Stokies camping (illegally?) for free in Rhyl with better internet than they got at home.

Brian and Sue are a class act, no question. They say they don’t do paid gigs, but I’m sure we would all love to see them at Tynewydd when we can open up safely.

There was probably a 50/50 mix of music and banter last night, a lovely night with friends old and new. Alun usually rounds off the end of each half in style. Watch the vid to see.
