DAVID AND KATE HAVE RETIRED
A huge thank you to all our previous guests,
For your friendship and good humour and
For all the hints and tips shared and exchanged.
We shall miss you!
The Quilters’ Retirement
The time has come, her Old Man said
To think of many things –
Of Camper vans and sunsets new and
No more apron strings.
The poor old Quilter shed a tear –
She loved her quilty life
Of friendship, laughter and good times
Far from toil and strife
The Old Man stood on creaking limb
And declared it’s time to go
To foreign climes and pastures new
Try someone else’s stew
The Quilter went down on bended knee
She didn’t want to do it
But hips did ache and eyes were dim
She had to get around tuit
The Old Man heaved her upwards
And explained the world at large
We still have life, if care we take
I thought we’d buy a barge!
The Quilter pondered on his words
It’s true the quilts are mounting
The WIPS are waiting in the wings -
But then again who’s counting
The Old Man and The Quilter
Together they did speak
It’s been a ball, we’ve loved it all
But now we’re past our peak!
