BLUE BEACH HUT THE INSPIRATION FOR MY CONSERVATOIRE

NOT HARBOURING A GRUDGE TODAY



Wednesday 21 June 2017
Herne Bay to Whitstable and Back
7.8 miles, Weather very sunny and hot alleviated by a pleasant on-shore breeze.
4 Walkers
The tension had been building ever since the weather forecasts of last weekend suggested a heatwave culminating on Wednesday at 30+ temperatures across the whole country. Possibly the hottest day since 1976. With the Queen’s Speech reduced to a Queens Quick Word; and Andy Murray losing in the first round at Queens (where else?), speculation was rife. The Nation turned its head towards the Wednesday Rambers and asked “Will there be knees?”
It was in 2009 that Mr Carter rocked the world by breaking the glass ceiling above his ankles and exposed his calves. Undaunted by the incident at Conyer (Stinging-Nettle-Gate), he has continued to wear those trousers and the world has followed him. Given humanity’s constant urge for progress; to break the confines of conformity; to push the envelope, there were expectations that perhaps one of the Group will make the break and get their knees out.
Our special reporter, Louisa Grungeberg, observedThere are four walkers expected today. G2S, of course, has previous. Back in the heady 60’s when free love prevailed and the musicals “Hair” and “Godspell” saw the flinging of clothes far and wide, G2S knees were on the front cover of every society magazine “Those Sexy Knees!” was one profound headline. But he has since become a reformed, demure conformist and it is unlikely we shall see anything there.”
With respect to our Leader, GP, she said “He is essentially a conservative on such matters; his strong and stable leadership over the years has kept the group on the right course. If he were to produce his knees, that would be a startling blow. But let’s not forget his penchant for the unexpected and unusual…”
There is a lot of speculation about the Ramblers’ photographer who, since causing a sensation by flashing them accidentally on Folkestone beach in 1967, has kept them under wraps ever since. Louisa suggests “His most likely ploy is, with perfect timing, to bring out a photograph of them (soft focus, of course).”
So what of the youngest member? Well known for his sartorial elegance and dapper countenance, many pundits believe he has been keeping his knees up his sleeve; awaiting the perfect moment when he shall whip them out for all to see. What a blaze of glory! Sunglasses will need to be worn to protect against the blinding light reflecting off them”.
And so the moment arrived. The sun beating down at 10.00, already approaching 28 and rising……
And no knees were revealed!
The Youngest Member said he had thought about it but grew feint of heart at the last minute. The others had already taken the safe option and kept their attributes under wraps.
The Group were treated to the sight of Four French sheep dogs (Bisonoirre) enjoying  

the waves, and many holiday makers taking advantage of the weather. They took a break at what has become the usual haunt for sausage sandwiches, tea and free doughnuts and, refreshed and invigorated, marched back to Herne Bay. By the time they arrived shortly after 1.00pm, the temperature was rising and rising……….
Phew! What a Scorcher!

I have Talk_Talk itis if there are any anomolies.
