Friday 21st April 2006

This site has been created in response to Mike L who is in Spain and wanted to experience the atmosphere of the Chequers Club and in particular partake in the meanderings of Dave (me) and Roy and Richard (Barnes).
Barnes couldn't be with us this week as he had a rabbit show to attend. Roy kindly picked me up and dropped me off at the Chequers at 11.30am. Only thing is - is that it doesn't open until 12 noon. Nina's Husband was painting the flower tubs and making a good job of it!
Not a lot to report this week really except everybody's concerned about the Pension Scheme, but Roy seemed to know a fair bit. Evidently if you retire at 60 instead of 62 you lose 4 per cent of your pension each year ( that's 8 per cent in all - you can see why I'm an Engineer can't you!?)
Roy was commenting on a guy he knew who was retiring and said " You know he's so laid back he's almost Vertical!" I nearly choked on my pint of Miller. This is a typical Royism - By the way , The Queen Mum's dead Roy!! More later.
