A Xmas Story!

From John Bennett

A couple was doing last minute shopping on Christmas Eve. Walking through the very crowded mall the wife looked up and noticed her husband was nowhere around. She became very upset because they had a lot to do.

She used her cell phone to call her husband to ask where he was.

The husband, in a calm voice said, "Honey remember the jewellery store we went into five years ago, where you fell in love with that diamond necklace that we could not afford and I told you that I would get it for you one day?"

The wife, crying, said "Yes, I remember".

Husband: "Well, I'm in the bar next to that jewellery store."

From John Bennett
When my Doctor asked me If I led an active life I told him about my day
"Well, yesterday afternoon, I waded across the edge of a deep lake, barely escaped from a wild pig in the heavy brush, marched along a treacherous trail up and down a mountain, stood in a patch of poison ivy, crawled out of quicksand, and barely escaped jumping away from an aggressive brown snake."

Inspired by my story, the Doctor said,
"You must be an awesome outdoorsman!"

"No," I replied, "I'm just a sh*t golfer

Aggregate Stapleford!

17 October

First Ron Humphrey and Bill Huntley 72 pts

Second Barry Preston and Terry Phillips 70 pts

Third Bill Power and Jack Snape 69 pts

John Bennett reports on some amazing play.

"A very rare two ,on the first for Bill Power using a three iron and a six iron held down a little, followed by a two on the fifteenth, which picture says it all. Well done Bill is that a smirk in the left picture? Jack Snape witnessed it all.

Yet another very happy smile. After playing the game for forty years Don O’Brien finally achieved a hole in one on the fifteenth. With the flag in the middle a sweet seven iron made Don’s day. Sixth place and 63 points, Alex Keating witnessed the moment.

Don will be buying a drink for all the members after the Four Seasons match on Monday 31 October."
