Bridge 61 don't let you down

It was a lovely day today with the sun out very early. The snow had really started to thaw so Del got out and did the brasses while Al read her book as we had trouble trying to get on line. It turned out it wasn't a problem our end, and when phoning Vodafone everyone had had the same problem and the network was down. This took up the bulk of the day and it was very relaxing. In the evening we were planning to go to a folk shin dig at the Bridge 61 pub. This is where loads of boaters turn up with instruments and just all have a play and a sing song. We managed to get there at about 8.00pm and it was packed with people sitting around with accordions violins, guitars, banjos, harmonicas, and drums. We even had people turn up with just a stick and a piece of string and of course the spoons. We had a ball of a time singing to all the old folk songs. The pub even brought round a hot sausage on a fork and samosas. We all got a bit merry, as you can see, by even trying to blow up a balloon using your nose, on your head. We staggered home at about 1.00am... The canal was just starting to freeze.......
