On a cool but daylight evening in April our Chair LG, armed with her
coffee, guided us through another evening of learning through enjoyment.
Her chosen theme was ‘bananas’ with lots of interesting fill-in material.
Introductions were to the word: ‘bananas’
A big welcome to our guest JM. We hope that he enjoyed the evening
and look forward to see him again soon.
For our inspiration SR2 read the poem ‘When things go wrong’ by John Greenleaf Whittier
