Thank you, to all those who have sent me their phone numbers. It would help to have the numbers of those who have not submitted them to me yet!


Our on course reporter and Match Organiser at High Legh was Rob Taylor: -


All 12 pitched up in plenty of time. Thehonourable draw was in fact a dishonourable wipe out! We went down 5 matches to 1. I did point out that our B team was playing in the Tatton League - couldn't make out what happened to the A team - perhaps our C team had come instead?!!!


Course was  . . .well . . .High Legh. Wet still, with long grass - no mats. We all struggled having been on mats for so long I think. Greens were sandy but the bunkers were good!

My joke got a laugh and a round of mediocre applause - so I guess I am not in contention for the worst joke of the season yet? Phil Lomas was there - and I did not miss the chance to point out to the crowd that he was last year’s winner! They called for him to repeat his joke - but he modestly declined!


Vignette of the day

I was at the bar and this fellow sidled up to me and said, " put your money away - this round is on me"

As I had never seen him before I said " Thanks. But Why?"

" Because I've just played 18 holes with you!" he said

"Ah  - no actually. You played with Gerald" - who walked up as he spoke.

"Ah" he said. " well . . .  Gerald, You had a hat on out there and you two DO LOOK ALIKE"

I . . .me . . .look like Gerald? ME . . .LOOK LIKE GERALD!

He walked off before I could clock him one!

Gerald spent the rest of the day grinning at me.

6) Joke’s of the week: (courtesy of Eric Harper)


 Murphy says to Paddy, What ya talking into an envelope for?
"I'm sending a voicemail ya fool!"
19 paddies go to the cinema, the ticket lady asks "Why so many of you?"
Mick replies, "The film said 18 or over."


The Grim Reaper came for me last night, and I beat him off with a vacuum cleaner.
Talk about Dyson with death.
I went to the cemetery yesterday to lay some flowers on a grave.  As I was standing there I noticed four gravediggers walking about with a coffin, 3 hours later and they're still walking about with it.
I thought to myself, they've lost the plot!!
My daughter asked me for a pet spider for her birthday, so I went to our local pet shop and they were £70!!!
Blow this, I thought, I can get one cheaper off the web.
I was at an ATM yesterday when a little old lady asked if I could check her balance, so I pushed her over.
I start a new job in Seoul next week.  I thought it was a good Korea move.
I was driving this morning when I saw a parked RACQ van.
The driver was sobbing uncontrollably and looked very miserable.
I thought to myself, that guy's heading for a breakdown.
