General Chatty Stuff / Romance
April 16, 2020, 12:58:56 pm
Two elderly people lived in the same care home. He was a widower and she a widow. They had known one another for a number of years. One evening there was a community supper in the big activity centre. The two were at the same table, across from one another. As the meal went on, he made a few admiring glances at her and finally gathered up his courage to ask her: "Will you marry me?"

After a dramatic pause and a few seconds of careful consideration, she answered: "Yes. Yes, I will."

The meal ended and, after a few more pleasant exchanges, they went to their respective places.

Next morning, he was troubled as he wondered: "Did she say 'yes' or did she say 'no'?"

He couldn't remember. Not even a faint memory. With trepidation, he went to the telephone and called her.

First, he explained to her that he didn't remember as well as he used to. Then he reviewed the lovely evening past. As he gained a little more courage, he then inquired of her: "When I asked if you would marry me, did you say 'Yes' or did you say 'No'?"

He was delighted to hear her say: "Why, I said, 'Yes, yes I will' and I meant it with all my heart."

Then she continued: "And I am so glad that you called, because I couldn't remember who had asked me."
A very informative video clip which may help to put the Coronavirus into perspective.

Just being released.  It might be worth waiting for a while before jumping in though.

General Chatty Stuff / Get involved in Neyland

Neyland Community Gardening.  A chance to get involved.

Click on the attached link for more.
Want to get involved in Neyland?  Have a look at the attached.

Adam Pollard, who looks after the hosting of our website for us, would like to know if anyone is interested in getting involved with any of the following activities. 

He says:

I'm involved in some environmental initiatives in Neyland
and was wondering if anyone in the U3A would be interested.
We have the Plastic Free Communities and I would urge the U3A to sign
up to this. basically it means avoiding single use plastic like
plastic cutlery, cups etc.
I also do a bit of community gardening with 2 or 3 others as well as
litter picks and currently some Buddleia clearance.
Lastly, we are looking at the Bee Friendly town status. This is about
encouraging habitat for bees and avoidance of pesticides that may harm

If anyone is interested let me know and I'll pass on his contact details.

Photography / Haverfordwest Racecourse

Hi all,

I'm starting to put together a website for the Haverfordwest Racecourse. I find that I've taken remarkably few photos over the years which I blame on the dog-walking not being compatible with cameras.

If anyone has any photos they would be happy to see included I'd be most grateful.  They could just be artistic views or of the various sporting activities that take place there.

Full size images preferred so that I can crop them for the site layout and let me know if you'd like an acknowledgement.

Many thanks

This is so much better than a postcode which may even take you to the wrong side of a river or just somewhere in the right road.

Accurate to a 3m square!

Have a look at:   https://what3words.com

Using "chins.diverged.crab" should take you somewhere familiar.

I could use it to locate my front door or the weatherproof box in my back garden for deliveries when I'm out.

This is too good to be allowed to fail.
General Chatty Stuff / A little puzzle

Spotted recently - it could have been in an up-market Christmas cracker:

What is a word made up of 4 letters, yet is made up of 3.  Although is written with 8 letters, and then with 4.  Rarely consists of 6, and never is written with 5.

Dont know if many people know about it, 5past the hour and 35 minutes to the hour, carmarthen park and ride go to glanwilli hospital it goes into the bus station in carmarthen, then onto the hospital it stops opposite the hospital and picks you up at the same stop, its free if you have a bus pass, trying to park at the hospital is a nightmare, thought I should pass this on to U3A members.
