Mozzies Are Bastards.
It was generally agreed that we should do this even if it meant that not everyone would be given time to read . If this should be the case, the person/s in question should receive priority the following week.
The subject for the week was Why On Earth...? or David´s Last decision.
Jane wrote a piece on the first subject. I apologise to Jane for failing to make a note of what her piece was about. Telephone calls have proved fruitless. Mea Culpa!
Stan once more wrote a reminiscence about a rugby game between teams of priests and vicars in 1958. Not much brotherly love lost there with one of the priests snarling "I´ll have you for that you bastard!"
Gerry carried on his story of the cavalryman surrounded by indians, rescued at the last minute.
John Major´s piece called The Day of the Big Match very cleverly told the story of a husband and wife cheating on each other in different ways.
Michael told an anecdote which included a rather witty but cruel putdown.
Chris´s poem, inspired by the topic Water, was the Caravaca story recounted in three voices.
Douglas came up with a mild rant called "Never Enough".
Jenny´s poem, "Mozzies Are Bastards" explains the picture at the top.
Mary K had left her poetry comfort zone and ventured into prose for the start of what could become a novel.
John McG wrote a poem called "Toy Boy"
A lively discussion began on poetry, and what it actually was.
So ended the week´s meeting. Another pleasant and stimulating one.
