In the month of June 2012 our dear friend Chris Foskett reached 3 score years!
Chris’s 60th Birthday Bash
Do you remember that scene from The Omen?
When they are taking young Damien to a wedding
when he first sets eyes on the church
he starts fitting and screaming and yelling
Well, that was me as we turned into the grounds
of the C C C C Con, Conservative Club
but reassured by Paul and Kevin
and the though of some good beer and grub
I quite quickly resumed my composure
after all I was travelling somewhat incognito
dressed head to tail in blue for Chris’s 60th
it was the very least I could do!
CC Smugglers provided the music
and a damn fine job they did make
appealing to the young and the mature folk
as we danced while our thirst we did slake
Chris was bombarded with presents
now then what do you think
many came in the shape of a bottle
yes most of them were some form of drink!
Keith and Sally popped in at the beginning
to say “Hi” and to wish Chris the best
before zooming off to Bedford Esquires
and putting their dance moves to test!
There were friends from Astrium galore
those working and some lucky ones retired
friends & family from the village and Con club
Plus Gill and the sons Chris had sired
And everyone had a great time
Chris’s cake was simply stunning to see
it was a couple of cars on a racetrack
with Chris as a marshal at the Grand Prix
And the CC Smugglers played on
and some of us danced just for fun
Chris bash was quite simply just brilliant
and we were all sad when it was over and done.
Until the next time, stay dry!
