SWAG Member's Day - 26th April, 2020

Recommended Posts

In a potentially post-Brexit environment I cannot rely on 2020 being anything. However, comma, having missed the Taunton shindig for a couple of years, perhaps this ought to go in the diary - if only I kept one! The menu as posted by Stubby so far is most tempting. I/we will try to be there!

Yo dudes. The mighty(https://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/uploads/emoticons/default_mosking.gif ) Greens last home match is on the 25th so that could be the clincher for a few of us 'northeners' (that is, east and north of Brizzle) to attend? There must be trains from/to Taunton and if not the drive isn't impossible.

Maybe I'll be fit enough?

Duck.

 

Hang on chaps.  Don't encourage him too much or he might actually try to turn up.

 

Think carefully - do you really want a bird loose in the room?  Just think what they do  .  .  .  .

Last time I left the velux window open in the railway room loft a sparrow flew in & crapped incessantly all over the layouts up there.  I'm still trying to clear up after it.

 

Also, ducks in particular (along with gulls, of course) are notorious for eating anything/everything they can get their beaks into, including your lunch and, indeed, yourself if necessary.  If the place is going to be packed with cake like it usually is it'll be chaos.  Is that what we really want?

True story, I was late for work once when I had to persuade a sparrow to get out of the house. My boss actually seemed impressed when I told him I'd been chasing a bird around the bedroom.

Oh wow, must come and crap everywhere now as I can be scanned and turned into an item for the layout (what layout?). I'll have you know that Ducks' carp is really awful, but not as awful as Gulls' carp as that is often full of sand and gravel. Ducks' stuff is more slime and weed.  Just do not invite any geese or Cormorants.

Surely (don't call me that) it must be a woolen suit?

That depends on your opinion of crushed velvet lounge suits.

 

Oh sorry, I misread crepe for something else.

I had a purple Crimplene jacket and aubergine flares when I was a young lad-about-town. Sadly, even if I still owned them neither would come close to fitting me now.

I am far too young to have had the delights of such fashion.
