Welcome to the Bob Hambleton web site,
Scroll down to this WEEK'S FRIDAY OFFERING
Here’s the latest "Offering" for 15-06-2018
Windows Up-date causes problems.
I had a scare that took 24 hours to sort out. Windows ‘forced’ an up-date
to my system and the result was that afterwards, the PC would not ‘boot-up.’ This was a scare for as well as the file containing this weeks “Offering” pro-forma the computer held the only copy of my book “Sarina’s
Season” which I had just brought to a virtually completed stage. I hadn’t done a back-up of either folder in the last week and was more than a little worried.
Thankfully the wizards at HP, worked their magic and
managed to sort things out. I am calming down now that I have done said ‘back-ups’ but it was a disturbing 24 hours and why this Offering is published so much later than normal. Thanks for that Windows 10!
Getting back to normal with a ‘Day Out.’
The recent disturbances to our usual routines have passed enough to allow us a day to our selves and last week we made the trip down
to the Ayrshire coast to have a look round the shops and then lunch in Largs.
The Nova Scotia Folk Club was as good as ever this week.
We had another
very enjoyable evening at the Fort Theatre in Bishopbriggs and are looking forward to the clubs 3rd Birthday Party, next week. I am hoping that the club member who has asked me to sing two songs from the ‘English Tradition’ will
be there so I can sing them for her. I keep going to the club with four songs prepared, the two she asked for and two others in reserve in case she is not there

The origins of my “Friday Offering”
ago a friend started sending out the odd joke (some were very odd) which he called “Something for Friday.” Since I had friends and relations that he didn’t know I started passing them on, calling mine a “Friday Offering.”
I rapidly progressed to finding my own material and my original supplier then ceased his weekly publication but over time my small distribution list has grown and is still growing. Encouraged by the feedback and contributions I have received, the
‘Offering’ has grown and the format become established to be my latest news and wry observations, a collection of jokes and amusing quotations. I am told that it gets forwarded to every continent (except Antarctica, anyone know someone down
