As I mentioned on another thread, I shall be raising a glass at 8.00pm tonight (Sunday) and thinking of Mick Hogan's fight to recover and everybody in Falcons' family affected by the virus and of our shared determination to keep our club going in the future. Please join me wherever you are.

I have never had such a tremendously good invitation to have a glass in my hand at 8 o'clock. Normally we would never start before at least 9.

A toast to all those who are working through this.

May I suggest that we follow it immediately, raising a second time for all those in the Falcons Family, as suggested by Dick.

Good call sir.

Cheers folks!

We went for an Italian wine, out of respect for the people of Italy who went into this as pioneers, and from whom we have no doubt learned a lot. Put it this way, you wouldn't want to be the one who had to go first.

One of the best glasses of South African white I've had. So I did a second toast at 8.15pm and am now on my third. Thank you for joining me. Shall we make this a regular on-line social event. I think I'll bring nibbles next time....

Sounds like a heavy night for everyone!

Anyone done a virtual pub yet? I'm hopefully doing one with a few friends this week, one of them says he did one last week with his bandmates and got quite drunk! drinking smiley

Good idea Leipy, may give it a go later in the week.

Our bin has been emptied. More heroes to raise a glass to next time we open a bottle, which won't be tonight. I knew 8pm was too early.

I will join you, but with water. Been on the plonk of some sort or other almost continually for over a week and my liver has asked for a night off.

Several colleagues and I did a Zoom 'night in the pub' last Friday. There were 4 of us left out of 23 or so at 'closing time'. Serious damage to the gin bottle. I hope our conversations weren't recorded by our employer......

Suddenly realised "Comfortably Numb" by Pink Floyd is playing on the radio at present. Fits in nicely with my wine and the topic.
