Flags at the Ready?

Only 13 or so hours before the Chelsea Pensioners arrive at the Club in their uniforms.  I feel we should be waving union flags and singing Land of Hope and Glory or something!

Gerry kindly contacted the Richmond & Twickenham Times and I emailed my contact at the South West Londoner paper.  Whether or not either send a reporter down, we’ll have to wait and see, but they might.

This afternoon (Tuesday), I was playing for the Friends of English Bowling against the Bowls England Select team down in Portsmouth.  Thinking how crazy it was driving all that way through torrential rain and at the same time feeling sorry for the organisers, I needn’t have worried because the sun came out and shone all afternoon.  How lucky were we?

I just hope the sun shines tomorrow, Wednesday.

(I’m posting this late at night waiting for my blue Centenary shirt to come out of the washing machine in the hope that it dries by midday .)

    Let’s hope it doesn’t rain for the Pensioners today ! I don’t think singing is called for though ? I hope a Reporter does attend but unlikely as they weren’t interested when Norman asked them to come to our bannerette game when the Richmond Council Rep came !
