The International Toast was given by Ian Jackson, who was extensively prepared (I have his notes). As it is Rugby World Cup time, he toasted the Rotary Club of Cardiff, which meets just down the road from the Millennium Stadium. It was completed in 1999 and used some 40,000 tonnes of concrete, 12,000 tonnes of structural steel in construction. It seats 74,500 people and there are 34 public bars. The Rotary Club meets at 1pm on Mondays at the Novotel Cardiff Centre on Schooner way. Chartered in 1917, it is the oldest club in Wales. Next week they celebrate their 98th anniversary. Further announcements: President Scott. Andrew Baxter has resigned from our club with immediate effect for personal reasons. Unfortunately this leaves the attendance officer role vacant. Hugh B reported that we are likely to have an away meeting at the Supreme Court sometime in Feb/March next year. Sergeant John then jumped in and started with an apology! Apparently some emails that he thought hed sent hadnt gone out. He paid a fine, then went on to raise $198.80. Paspaley shirt went to Hoppy for his Corona Beer shirt. A few Harry Payne memorials were told, one involved Kiwis and the Canning Stock Route. Meeting closed at 2020. Again, a reminder to please send apologies for non-attendance and notify if you intend to bring guests. This is important to help inform the hotel so they can provide better service. Andrew Pinnell Photos: Vic Minchin With Age Comes Wisdom (?) A guy is 80 years old and loves to fish. He was sitting in his boat the other day when he heard a voice say, Pick me up. He looked around and couldn't see anyone. He thought he was dreaming when he heard the voice say again, Pick me up. He looked in the water and there, floating on the top, was a frog. The man said, Are you talking to me? The frog said, Yes, I'm talking to you. Pick me up, then kiss me and I'll turn into the most beautiful woman you have ever seen. I'll make sure that all your friends are envious and jealous, because I will be your bride! The man looked at the frog for a short time, reached over, picked it up carefully and placed it in his shirt pocket. The frog said, What, are you nuts? Didn't you hear what I said? I said kiss me and I will be your beautiful bride. He opened his pocket, looked at the frog and said, Nah, at my age, I'd rather have a talking frog. Patrick Wright
