Time flies

My wife reminded me that it was 9 years to the day recently where Simsqu and I had the famous 'Fool Social on the Loch' aboard his Wolf of Wall Street esque gleaming white yacht.

Unwilling to carry the horror on my own I saw fit to email our winner of the 1972 Butlins Benito Mussolini look a like contest with the news.

He too had blocked it from his memory. Reopening that particular can of worms was....satisfying. :-)

There's nothing like ruining someone else's day when yours has been turned to shite first eh?

Only kidding buddy.

If anyone nearby wishes to join us, they would be very welcome. We plan to meet about 8pm.

Harvey's and Dark Star beer available. We are not eating but they do food. Only one bar, turn right as you enter.

In case you missed it, an Old Fool mentioned an Old Location a little while back (as a potential change of scene and smell):

I was there (Grafton) a year or two back with some work colleagues, as it's close to our London office just off Tottingnumb Ct Rd.
Not many people in (it was 1pm..) - just the Ghosts of Socials Past
I was never a fan of the separate area upstairs unless we had a good turnout. With fewer than ten we tended to rattle around a bit, isolated from the real people downstairs :-)

Watching a program on ITV at the moment and they talked briefly to the former owner of the Bree Louise pub that has been demolished to make way for HS2.

Is that the same pub where I attended my first Fool Social?

Probably but a search for Bree Louise finds other websites:

I am on that 'Facebook' thing. And also 'WhatsApp' although it will soon cease to work due to my aged iPhone.
I hate Twitter.

Rumour has is that Twitter, WhatsApp and Facebook are going to merge into one platform.
They're going to call it Twatface
