GENEROUS OFFER – the tourist who got into trouble because he insisted on driving the taxi he had hailed in Piccadily, reminds us of Tristan Bernard, an old French wit. Bernard asked a taxi driver, ‘How much to the Rue Taitbout. ‘One hundred francs,’ said the driver. ‘Jump in,’ said Bernard, ‘I’ll drive you there myself for fifty.’
MOSSLEY CORRESPONDENT – some copies in the porch.
DIACONATE – the diocese will shortly be offering a programme for training deacons. Apparently, the ideal age is between 35 and 55, and the course runs for four years. Anyone interested could mention it. We do have some leaflets (when they can be located!)
ONCE AGAIN – nothing much stirring at present; it’s called ticking over. Never heard of anyone from Mossley heading for the ski slopes. Years ago residents would have spent the evenings staring into the fire and toasting their feet. Hope there isn’t air conditioning in heaven.
