just when you thought it was safe to go into the

May 19, 2015

I made this subject a bit vague , Tom gave me the idea about cars on the beach,so the last week-end I spent in Blackpool at Noahs Arc  reunion at the Imperial Hotel . What the 'F' was he doing there,well as you know I finished my time with the 14/20 Hussars in Hohne ,with living on the emerald isle I have to plan visits the UK so with this year me being  out 30 years this month Kay and myself decided to do it. It was a great weekend meeting guys/gals we hadn't seen since the mid 80's . So tell me why do guys do a Yul Bryner ,also now they have designer beards ( yuk ) ?????? okay okay what he giving a sob story for,well, Friday night 380 people sat down to an evening meal and show ( blues brothers ) not bad for a regiment that went in 1992, so then Saturday night 400+sat down ,they had the Regt'l band oldies serenade us ,then a disco's finished off. We had guys from all over the place ,some from Spain and Germany (complaining about the £ x euro exchange),the cost was £98 per couple (dinner/breakfast) per night ,they 180 rooms filled ,so all this muddled up info BUT it was great weekend .......Ps they have lost their northern recruiting and northern HQ sounds familiar ......

Bob; what have you got against designer beards?  Yes I sport one these days! As for the shaved head issue, some of us would be grateful to have a full head of hair to shave! I confess I missed the link twixt the title of your piece and its actual content but what the hell, 2 or 3 read "throughs" and I think I got the gist of what you meant , keep posting it's good to read your eclectic thoughts. Have a great weekend. D
