A HEALTHY AND HAPPY 2018 FROM GLYN AND ALLAN…DANDY COMEDY
Sorry for the belated greetings, folks. Can’t offer any real excuse except Winter Blues. Hard to get going. Anything seems preferable to getting anything meaningful done. The list of jobs is as far as it gets. Some of you may have ventured on to the Facebook page and already be up to date with the “Diary of 2 Very Boring Elderly People who despite disbelief still go out to entertain other people (who are easily pleased) “.
First 2 months of this year have flown past in a heady cloud of Bacon Baps at Dunelms, Toast at Costa and afternoon naps. We did fit in a week in Gran Canaria….where the average rainfall for January is 3 days in the month…we had 4 of them! Himself aka The Hub has had to come to terms with becoming 70. It helped that we were with friends Pauline and Roger in a Music Bar in Meloneras and pretending we could still dance like 16 year olds. The following morning told a different story! Us Baby Boomers find it hard to accept growing older with anything like good grace.
We have already done several gigs so I will list them for the record and scatter a few photos when possible.
7th WALMLEY GOLF CLUB for a private joint Birthday celebration. Lovely afternoon. Thank you to all.
18th THE BEACON VILLAGE, LICHFIELD. Good to be back here among so many old friends.
20th SUTTON COLDFIELD GOLDIESLEY CLUB. Splendid night made even better by Sausage and Mash and good company.
24th BURNTWOOD MEMORIAL HALL STARLIGHT SHOW for our friends Mike and Carol with Debbie Miles.
9th SUTTON ARTS THEATRE. Great night. Lovely to see so many friends who had come along to support us.
10th HAMMERWICH BOWLS AND CRICKET CLUB with our friends ETERNITY DUO aka Nicky and Cliff. Another great night with our friends here who have come along to join in the fun for so many years. Thanks to Ronnie for asking us along and for Allan’s Present which fell into the category “Gifts for the Old and Infirm”.
11th WHITTINGTON CHURCH HALL. Thanks to Margo and Alistair and the team for all of their hard work again. Brilliant afternoon as always. Then back home and straight out again to watch Vivo and friends at Knowle British Legion. Felt very fragile Monday morning.
16th BEAUDESERT GOLF CLUB. Our first visit here….but we are returning next year. Thank you to Grace for the invitation. Great crowd.
17th NEWPORT BOWLS CLUB. This is about our 10th year visiting the Club. They are friends now after so many years. Love them. Incredible amounts of money raised again for Cancer Research and for Alzheimers.
23rd LULLINGTON VILLAGE HALL. Out to South Derbyshire to the sweet village of Lullington again. Wonderful meal and a warm welcome. Thank you so much everyone involved.
24th KINGS NORTON GOLF CLUB ….BUDDY HOLLY TRIBUTE NIGHT with MIKE BERRY AND THE OUTLAWS. This again is about the 10th year. Mike Berry is looking and sounding better than ever…and we saw him for the first time when we were about 16. Big thanks to Dave and Eve Slater who organise this event each year and get a full house each time. Mike and the band come ome onstage and the dance floor fills mmediately. Fabulous night. Our spot was somewhat marred for me by my severe Migraine attack. Allan and his bloody striped jacket! We had to leave as soon as we had finished. Already booked in for next year. Meanwhile you can see Mike on the Sixties Show touring the theatres.
