April – May – June


On the bowling front, April saw the end of indoor bowling at Littleton for the season.  Roger’s teams finished fourth in both the Morning and Afternoon leagues, and mid-table in the evening triples.


Outdoor bowling began on Sunday 15 April with the Opening of the Green.  The usual roll-ups and inter-club competitions started soon afterwards.  Roger had taken on an additional responsibility this year, running the friendly afternoon inter-club games for Seniors, in the absence of the regular captain due to illness.


We were among the many affected by the TSB on-line banking problem in April – unable to log into our account for over three months.  However, I have to say that staff at the branch in Evesham were invariably friendly and helpful when we needed over-the-counter assistance.  More than I can say for some of the other banking institutions used by the family.


May saw the annual Winchcombe Festival of Music and Arts, and Teresa and the girls made the most of the various opportunities on offer, participating in classes on broom-dancing and ukulele, among other things.  On Wednesday 23, we all went to a concert by Fiddlers Two, playing very much the kind of music Roger and Jay attempt – they gave us a copy of their play-list afterwards and we found one to add to our repertoire.


In June, Teresa and Helen reprised their holiday riding the trains in the USA.  They took the cross-country route from New York, followed by the West Coast route down to Los Angeles.  This time they had brief stays in Chicago and San Francisco.  An additional bonus (or disruptment, to be honest) was covering part of the desert route by road owing to problems with the track.
