More From Katie's Dad
Here I go again with some more moans, some news about the Cricket Match and a really bad joke that you cannot blame me for!
So here is the latest blog though it's a bit Ronnie Corbett - shorter than normal.
It was lovely to receive a couple of messages direct to Katie’s website this week. It is always wonderful to receive such messages especially when they are unexpected.
Those of you who know me well know of my dislike of the unnecessary use of the word “like” in it seems every sentence spoken by children of a certain age. I overheard one young lady in a bar the other day use thirteen “likes” (yes I did count them) in one go. She was like really happy, and was like talking really quickly and was like telling her friends a story and I had to leave as I was like disgusted!
We will soon have more information about some of the fund raising ideas at this year’s cricket match. One of which will be the opportunity to name a part of the day. This is called “Naming Rights” and for a bit of fun you will get the chance to” name” for example a stump, the changing rooms, the toilet or even the whole ground for a price.
We will then have, for example, “The Fan Brown Gents Toilet" or “The Charlie Greenfield Car Park”, "The Friends of Katie Scoreboard" and so on. A full price list of what’s available will be out soon and those who purchase an item will get a certificate and their item will have their name on it. Of course it’s all a bit of fun and the proceeds will go to Little Havens
This week’s joke is courtesy of Katie’s step dad (in case any of our Irish friends complain!) During a recent password audit at the Bank of Ireland it was found that Paddy was using the following password:-
When asked why he had such a long password: he replied, Bejazus! Are yez stupid? Oi was told me password had to be at least 8 characters long and include one capital "
Until next time.
