Xmas Dinner

Our club Christmas celebrations this year included a sit-down, fully catered 'traditional' cold ham, cold turkey, new potatoes and salad dinner. It was a wonderful meal well complemented by the festive table setting. Members each contributed and received a hand made xmas cracker with quilty contents and Frances contributed a poem which she recited just before the dessert was served:

The daughter of the farrier
Could find no one to marry her,
Because she said
She would not wed
A man who could not carry her.
The foolish girl was wrong enough,
And had to wait quite long enough;
For as she sat
She grew so fat
That nobody was strong enough.

It didn't appear to deter anyone from helping themselves to the little pavlova desserts!
