Okay, Habs and hangers-on. I’ve put together an album of some of the photographs from the weekend. Once I’ve received at least five reviews of THE Party the link below will work and you can look at the pictures. Your review can be one word, one sentence, one paragraph, one page, one chapter, or a novel. My e-mail address is cat*at*houston.rr.com. I’ve received one review and one promise to review so far.
Note: If any of you want a picture removed from the album, just tell me which one and it’ll be gone. No questions asked.
Review No. 1 (from David): That was the all time great family party which will be difficult for the rest of us to match. Thank you Paul for being so generous and well done Nick for fixing it. Photos please…I’m afraid I didn’t take any, but there seemed to be plenty of cameras around.
I award first prize to Joe Fry for being the happiest chap around and booby prize to John T**sig for attempting to gatecrash. Outrageous behaviour!
Definitely felt a bit flat on Saturday night after all the excitement.
Review No. 2 (from Ricky [now no one should be shy]):
There was a Chess Grand-Master from Bedford,
Who at 60, put on a party in London.
All Habs who attended,
Went away very contented.
Thank you Paul, it was fun!
Review No. 3 (from Helen to Paul):
Thanks for an excellent party…it was really good to see nearly all the family together (sadly not Clare, Ed and John! Next time!). The food was excellent and staff very friendly so well done to Nick for a geat choice. It was great that Catherine came over….we actually had quite a lot of time with her, and we were all very pleased to finally meet Pam! I also really enjoyed talking to Sarah having never really got to know her before. Lets have another party soon!!
Review No. 4 (from Nick):
The best steak I have ever tasted and the best way we could have celebrated Dad’s 60th. It was great to see everyone together again and I hope another gathering will not be too far off. As happened this time (and as Jim Morrison said to Mike Myers in the film Wayne’s World) “If you book them, they will come”. 🙂
Review No. 5 (from Charlie)
What a great Weekend and monumental Lunch. Well done to Nick for the organisation. I think he picked a pretty good place. My highlights have to include Jim always seeming to order the wrong thing. Little Joe’s appearance. The steak. Watching Dad nervously having to tell the gatecrasher that it was time to leave. And Pompey winning 2-1 of course.
Bring on the next party!!!
Review No. 6 (part of a letter from Jean to Paul):
Many thanks for the splendid and memorable party… I thought the young en masse so young and attractive – we have all been truly blessed.
This way to the album!
