More Araucaria photos

Posted by jetdoc on February 21st, 2011


I have uploaded my photos (+ one from Derek) of the wonderful lunch which took place at King’s College Cambridge on Saturday. I haven’t yet had time to add captions. If anyone has some more they would like added to the set, email me directly.

    Re Page 3: I was only drinking water, though you wouldn’t guess it! The +1 is Mrs B, who was watching our neighbour using his ‘phone to solve a Guardian archive puzzle in his head.

    Anyway, very nice to see all these photos. It really was a great day, wasn’t it? I lost track of the number of times people mentioned joy and inspiration. Warm feelings all round.

    Jane, thank you for making us – the unlucky not-so-few – part of the celebration.
    Nice pictures.

    In case I could have managed to get a ticket, the festive occasion would also have reminded me of how knot a tie [or is it the other way around?] …..
    When I was 20, no problem, but now I’m almost 60, no idea ….

    That said, I cóuld have come to The Eagle spontaneously, but I didn’t.

    And, Boatman, I really would have liked to meet you.
    Maybe next time? Somewhere, somehow.

    Very good, Jane, thank you – what lucky, lucky people. Araucaria looks so young! I don’t get the significance of the wee folk sitting on the edge of the cake?

  7. jetdoc says:

    The wee folk were Compo and Nora Batty from Last of the Summer Wine. But I never quite picked up Araucaria’s connection with the programme.

  8. Jan says:

    Thank you, Jane. My hubby, looking at your pics, insisted it was Compo – I told him not to be silly! There you go. Maybe someone can enlighten us.

  9. jetdoc says:

    Jan, you also asked about the singers. They are Collegium Regale, made up of the Choral Scholars of King’s:

    Jane, thank you again.

  11. Boatman says:

    Sil – Yes, you should have been there! Follow me on Twitter @BoatmanCryptics, if you don’t regard Twitter as the province of numskulls and idlers (or at least have the self-control to read only the tweets of interesting numskulls and idlers) and I may occasionally give hints that serious Boatman spotters may be able to use to track me down in public.

  12. Sil van den Hoek says:

    Boatman, if you really want to ‘twitter all the way’ (which could make ‘that water lily wet’ :)), fine by me. I do not, though.
    Never had any kind of believe in personal Whatever.
    Walkman, discman, mobile phone, etc etc.
    Had them all, but.

    What about having a pint somewhere?
    I know, it’s a bit face to face, but ah well.

    BTW, like your website – discovered it a while ago.
    And I still treasure your Dead End Street crossword.
    Yes, that’s how my mind works – quality, not just quantity.

    Oh, and btw Jane, nice pictures … :)

    Back to the cake — Last of the Summer Wine is one of Araucaria’s favourite programmes, and he was taken on a special tour of Holmfirth.
