Saturday 13 March 2010 – A TGO Challengers’ Spring Reunion

The Snake Pass Inn

“We’re here.  Let’s go for a stroll.”

“It’s called Woodlands Valley.  I wonder why?”

Woodlands Valley

Amongst the crisp pine needles and leaf litter, a wandering hobo appeared.  We fed him some Chocolate Caramel Shortbread.

“I feel better now” he exclaimed.  Then he wandered off, repeating something about “need my Medication…Guinness”.

A wandering Pie Man

Up near Doctor’s Gate, we met a doctor called Martin.  “In need of Medication…must go…Rugby…TV…Calcutta…need to watch” he blurted.

A gaggle of figures passed above us as we returned through the forest.  They were being led down the dangerous A57 road by an elf with a long white beard who was desperately seeking Medication.  “Macallan, Laphroaig, Glen Morangie, Glenfiddich, Glenlivet” he chorused.

Back at the stark white building, some badly pitched Aktos and a Pie Man’s Palace flapped in the breeze whilst the inmates concocted Sue’s expensive stark white dinner, sponsored by Dunlop, featuring sea-life from the 20th century.

Scene of debauchery

There were lots of lovely people there, including an elderly gent with a huge belly.  “It’s the Medication…Black Bull Bitter and Potatoes” he confessed, before resuming the fruitless search for his favourite colour.

A man whose favourite colour is pink

It was great to see everyone, and we also missed those who couldn’t make it.  We look forward to seeing you again soon and hope that all our conundrums will have been discovered and our Medications solved by then.  Especially our own!

I must wear that jumper more often - the belly doesn't look too bad - grey is a slimming colour.

I shan't be wearing that little pink number again though...
