The One Where Linda Mary Marshall posted on your Wall.

"Hi Cat, Update on our `Sparkle` We did ! But the rain and wind tried to stop our wonderful voices! It didn`t ! Just before we went on stage the heavens opened.... and some more! Our mighty leader Ed escorted us ( in our masses) onto a stage fit for only a hand full of healthly built humans. We busied ourselves into an order of... `can you fit this microphone into the space next to your face`? After a bit of jiggling about we all managed to move into a space one can only describe as `personal`

As we got going with the repertoire, Ed was conducting us with the great professional enthusiasm as he always gives, but getting a little bit wet under the nasty Weymouth rain! He`s a trouper ! (We were dry, Oh Yes !) As I was stood next to the side awnning of the `stage`tent the wind kept trying to hit me off kilter, thus making my concentration a little `off key` I don`t think anyone noticed!

I think the onlookers enjoyed our concert, and everyone I spoke to (choir too ) had a good time despite of the awful weather conditions. To end our evening we all gathered in the pub for a `swift `alf`! We thanked Ed and made some new friends too, which is what it`s all about, isn`t it ? As Big Ron shouted out `ITS CHRISTMASSSS`Happy Christmas Everyone. "
