It was last week when I travelled to give a talk to the very lovely Castlepollard Gardening Club. And though it sounds a little funny to say it, I had an absolute ball. And it was as I previously noted a real honour to be asked to talk there.
I know it could maybe be seen that I was working, but when Russell the manager at the Castlepollard Hotel knows you’re arriving and when you eventually get to the place where the talk is to be held and you’re met with a cuppa and a hug; and you get an applause at the end and a hug – and the Frank the club’s Chairman buys you a drink after, you know it has been a pretty good evening.
Far more importantly than that, people smiled during my talking.
A note of thanks to Shirley for getting me there and also to you who came and listened and asked questions after and chatted and said hello – my sincerest thanks to you all; you and you’re lovely town and club are the reason for this posting.
Of note, some were a little more camera shy than I and therefore not all are present are pictured above.
