Sing something familiar

The air was buzzing at a recent Café meeting. Members joined in with gusto as Rowena regaled us with familiar songs from way back when.

Adding to the fun, we were asked to identify the songs and shows from original posters.

After all that energetic singing and playing, of course we needed a Tea-Break!

Story time at Callington Memory Cafe

There was once a King who desired a painting of a fantastic dragon.
Only the very best artist would be able to paint it.

So the story goes….

Yvonne had our members enthralled.

Did the King get his painting?
Well of course he did, that’s what Kings do after all.
But he did have to wait a year and a day.

Meanwhile Geoff regaled us with a poem about his tough toe nails.
Was he pulling our leg? (Groan)
The group were in stitches.

Members also recalled tales and passed them on to us.
Peter recollected how his brother went flying in a Glider, up and up on the wind.
Keith told a snappy tail of how his grandfather fought with a crocodile, Which prompted Sue to recall how, just before her wedding, her fiancé was chased by a crocodile in the zoo. That’s why he had a black eye on honeymoon.  Oh yes … really?

If you would like to find out why the Dragon Painting took a year and a day, perhaps you  should contact Yvonne.

Regards,

Chas.
