Eat Your Heart out Tony Blair

You can tell that the standing  Women's Institute speaker in the above photo is in fact me, mainly because she has a large gravy stain all down her front!
Today I know I have have "made it!"
My life is now complete!
I have given my first talk to an appreciative group of the Rhyl WI
I must admit everyone seemed to enjoy  my brief lecture, and even the lady with the hearing aid seemed to keep up with me, though I am sure I babbled on a little quickly for her.
Perhaps they were being rather polite
as the talk subject
" a history of the gay hotspots of South Yorkshire"
 could have been just a little racy for them !
anyhow
Weaver Of Grass 
you were mentioned!!!!
I left before they sang Jerusalem
It would have made me cry

ps I was joking about the "hotspots"

  5. How many Gay Spots in Yorkshire would there be? I think when I lived in Kitchener-Waterloo there had been maybeeee three? the one I had been to a few times. Lots of fun, and a little bit of bitchiness too I must say. xx

  6. EARL (& visitors)I have lived in Yorkshire all my life and have never been aware of any "gay hotspots" but Lancashire has millions of them. Gill asked what you were really talking about at the Rhyl WI and I am still not sure. If I had been the guest speaker my subject would have been "How to Escape from Rhyl".

  8. 'A history of gay hot-spots in South Yorkshire'? Mt life is now almost compleat upon hearing this news - well, the part of my life which involves animal-hoarders who are called upon to be expert witnesses in their own field, so to speak.

  13. I was going to say that it must come as a surprise to YP that there are any gay venues in Yorkshire, hotspots or otherwise, but I see he has already demonstrated this above.

  18. Hey ho, obviously a great success! A glittering future on the speaking circuit awaits! £200 an appearance, all those gay hotspot secrets, lol. Gravy stain on shirt an extra £50.
