Meeting No.28 – FLY


Fab evening at Rogers with some beers, nice cheese and honey covered sausages. John M took the theme one stage further – he was jetlagged from his ‘week-end’ trip to NYC “Week-end! It’s Thursday!” and had to leave early. The usual plethora of tunes and banter ensued…..with a pause for a lucky dip – Roger was taking a bagful of CDs to the charity shop so we all got to randomly pick one….or 2 (or more in my case). I got  the Gorillaz ‘Plastic Beach’ – result! Si brought a box Ferrero Rocher chocolates, the wrappers of which were turned into golden sculptures with the brown paper base used as a plinth……here’s what was played
