Post 1514. Monday April 24

Tales of everyday life in the coastal village of Amble Bay




Every Monday we hold the Tuesday Club. I know what you're thinking, but it's a long story so don't ask!

About twenty of us meet weekly to discuss important issues of the day. Last week we talked about wild animals damaging our gardens. 

Someone asked Arthur if he was having problems with the deer. He said Amble Ale was fine as long as he drank no more than three pints! I hope he's remembered his hearing aid this week..

We have three topics; one trivial, one serious and another of enormous importance. This week we are starting with (deep breath) 

‘The implications and the possible effects of the UK's exit from the EU upon rural communities in general, and Amble Bay in particular'

We haven't decided upon the serious and very important subjects yet. 

Only kidding!

We're actually discussing the proposed wind farm on Amble Marsh, Mrs Hendeson's massive increase of ten pence on a dozen of her eggs, and the weather.

So, off we go. Ladies and gentlemen, your attention, please!

Oh no, Arthur's snoring!

We are about to start Arthur!

Arthur!

Arthur!

Oh well.




Tomorrow will be all about Umbrellas and Ukeleles!

  1. I think members of the Tuesday club are very game to discuss such a contentious issue. Wind farms are difficult topics, especially for those who don't have one on their land and make no money from them. Hope the weather is nice.

  2. More beer, less deer. I think I'll make it my new motto.

    1. And so, thanks to Arthur forgetting his hearing aid, a new motto has been created! Cheers Denise

  3. Love your style Keith! Lighter moments and lots of humor in seemingly serious talks! It's great to have such a Tuesday gathering. Keeps one acquainted with what's trending locally and globally!

  5. The weather is a very serious topic...so are wind farms. Had Arthur already downed his three pints before the meeting? :)

  6. Hi Keith - I think this is so much fun - Tuesdays for Monday, or is it Monday for Tuesday and by chance would Arthur know - it's before opening time?! Wind Farms or just one wind appendage is enough to stick out like a sore thumb ... love Denise's comment: more beer, less deer ...that's a good one - cheers Hilary

    1. I'm so pleased you enjoyed it Hilary. Enjoy your Monday - or is it Tuesday?

  7. Maybe Arthur's taking a power nap before the nitty gritty business starts. Or, like Nilanjana said, he might have gone over his three pint limit! ;)

  8. A chilled glass of what Arthur's having will be perfect right about now.
    And weather is always serious business in England (at least that's what I gathered when I used to live there)
    Cheers for the chuckles.

    1. You are so right.It's always the first topic of conversation whenever we meet! I guess that's because it's unpredictable - even for the forecasters who usually get it wrong! Cheers Arti

    1. Poor Arthur was having a touch of deafness which is why he heard beer not deer! Although I sometimes think he has selective hearing! Thanks Mrs D.

  10. I see I'm not the only one who wants what Arthur's having - will he share? Happy A-to-Z-ing.

  13. An enjoyable read. I'm laughing about the hearing aid - I just finished dealing with my octogenarian father, trying to communicate dates and times of appointments. Your story made me laugh, which is what I need right at the moment My Virtual Vineyard

    1. After thinking about it there were more important matters to discuss like the price of eggs! Cheers Calen~

  15. Oh Mrs. Henderson and her egg prices need to be a topic.

    Fun read as always!

    1. They certainly do. The rising price of eggs is no yolk! Thanks Emily.

  16. I'd like to have what Arthur's having... a beer and a sleep... in the same order. The Tuesday Meetings seem like fin. I like their topics too. Must suggest the same to my boss. LOL :D

  17. Group discussions are fun and good brain exercise, even if there is always at least one person snoring! :-)

  18. I thought we were going to get some serious political analysis from Amble Bay there. I wonder if the snap election will be noticed there at all.

  19. Mighty tough topics for a Monday night. I can barely handle what's for supper, what's on TV, and is it time for bed, yet.

  20. Arthur needs more sleep, i think. Has anyone checked him for a sleep disorder?

  21. I hope you managed to put the world to rights, even without Arthur's important contribution!

  22. Love this one and it's given me lots of ideas... for lots of things. Glad to be able to catch up. What will I do without my regular Amble Bay visit?
