Good evening and welcome to Nungate Towers.
Igor is waiting by the main entrance to assist members with their coats cloaks and broomsticks, though in this pleasant warm weather he may only have to conceal broomsticks this evening.
In view of the pleasantness of the evening, I think we should all adjourn to the beach and hold our meeting there. Plant has set up the barbecue and
the coals are glowing beautifully ready for the goodies we have ready to toss on the grill. There are steaks, burgers, chicken, hot dogs you name it we probably will have it ready to barbecue, there is also a wide variety of salads and other side dishes, not forgetting the famous volly vonts, canopies and horses doovers. We have also requested the presence of Toni the Ice Man and his ice cream truck - 99's all round tonight!
Later the Tone Deafs will be playing, and they have set up a makeshift stage on the beach and will be playing a variety of summer time hits from days gone by............. the Minstrels can set up in the gallery with their usual madrigals and tocattas but they will only be playing to the portraits on the walls as we shall all be down by the sea, paddling! (one of these days I'll find out how they are getting in!) For those members not wishing to indulge themselves by the sea, the gardens are looking particularly pretty and we have set up a marquee in the grounds serving suppers and there will also be a mobile disco arriving later for dancing!
There are plenty of other outdoor diversions for our members, the race track is just waiting for racers to grab a cars for a few circuits of the track,
the maze is open too (keep turning left) We have just opened up the pink grotto to visitors, George the Dragon having gone on his holidays means members are permitted a peek at his far from humble home (just do not touch his treasure otherwise he will be back in a heartbeat, and I prefer guests ungrilled!)
As part of our usual fare the library is open to members as is the gym, indoor pool and other various diversions. It is a bit too warm in the conservatory but the Triffid is thriving, and the spider monkey is enjoying the extra heat.
I hope Queenie will be along later to tell us of the bit of excitement we had earlier on this week - which I found quite funny - she didn't!
For the rofl tonight I offer:
Half a dozen cardboard boxes (empty)
1 metre black fabric with gold stars (project didn't work!)
another bag of odd socks......

A warm welcome awaits all who dare enter these portals

carriages at midnight

Difficult to work out why, nungate, such a waste of young lives and for what !
forgot to say that my great uncle that was killed on the Somme won the military medal for his actions on that day ( not much of an exchange is it, your life for a medal ), we have looked into it and we can't find out what he did to be awarded that medal though.
Question Author
Isn't there a regimental record of the day he won the medal, or there ought to be something on the citation for the medal. There will be a record somewhere, trust me I love my history and there's almost always info to be had. The trick is finding it!
nungate, we have even been to his old regimental barracks museum and a retired Major went through the records for us, he couldn't find anything except for the battle diary of the 1st battalion South Staffs ( great uncle mob ) actions of that day.
Question Author
Plan b it is then Tony................as soon as I can think of one!
There has to be something somewhere regarding those who won military medals and how they were won.
If you can think of a plan B I'd be very grateful, nungate, let me know if you do and I'll give you all the details that I have if you like.

Going to bed now so good night and thanks for the lovely evening as usual.
Question Author
Will try to come up with a plan. I enjoy our little late night chats always very informative.

Good night Tony, sleep well
