Friday November 12th 2021

Well, here we are again at Tynewydd. This was our remembrance night, and the newly re-installed MC made a spectacular hash of his return to duties. First, forgetting to start on time, then forgetting where John and Carol are from and then ( horrors) forgetting to include T Gwyn in the list at all.

This lack of cognitive acuity cannot even be blamed on the falling down water because I’m still on the alcohol-free Guinness. Do try it. This not to espouse that the consumption of AF elixirs contributes to lethean tendency.

            What we had on Friday was a tight clutch of fine performances from all concerned. Unbridled filth from the Poet Laureate and poignant rendition from a wide variety of contributors whether spoken or sung. It is as unhelpful as it is invidious to pick out any individual and I will not do so. Without descent into hyperbole I merely observe that you all deserve a pat on the back. It was a pleasure to go home whistling as one amongst the audience said to me.

            Now, do not forget, next week is Zoom , then ,at the centre every Friday until the Xmas “do” on the 17th of December. Hey ho.

  1. “invidious to pick out any individual” COULD be shorthand for “even with the photos as prompts, I can’t remember any of these sap’s names…  Jus’ sayin’

      Nay nay, I say… Emm Cee’s own account, above, is both modest and self-deprecating in the extreme. We are glad to have you back, old boy, rahter than that Cheshire-based grumpy old painless old half-witted git, to whom we’ve become accustomed during darkest Zoom days (or even nights).
      ‘Twould be disingenuous to suggest that Emm Cee knows not what he sayeth. For example, his self-evident expertise in the field of unusual modal guitar tunings stands as a fine tribute to Bert Weedon, to Charles Atlas and to Leslie Welch (a.k.a. “Memory Man”)
      I kid you not. We are lucky to have him. Harrrumphhh…!!!
      Emm Cee: You owe me 1 x “Fields of Athenry” 🙂
