The hordes consisted of old friends, all of IBM extraction. Firstly there was Rosemary Hurrell, then her 'brother' Derek Sanders ( Derek took Rosemary as his guest on a Tivoli (an IBM acquired company) sales award cruise to the Caribbean, sharing a room but strictly on a platonic basis, he is a gentleman after all!) and finally Allen & Pam Brain. We have been meeting as a 6 some on periodic occasions for some years and this time, it was Rosemary's turn to be hostess and we were to spend the weekend at her house in Stock, some 23 miles away
We were soon reunited and as usual, the laughter and conversation flowed in torrents. There is something about the chemistry here that is quite magical, we always have a great time. After lunch, we took a stroll down the embankment that keeps the tide out of an area of reclaimed grazing land. It was showing Tollesbury at its best and very well it did too!
Strolling over, we then got into the cars and made our way back to Rosemary's house. Thence it was aperitifs, followed by a walk to the local pub for dinner, back to R's for nightcaps and bed, with the volume of conversation and laughter undimmed. It was promising to be a great weekend.
