Welcome to the Bob Hambleton web site,
Scroll down to this WEEK'S FRIDAY OFFERING
Here’s the latest "Offering" for 16-08-2019
My work on “Sarina’s Farmer” is complete, until the proof reading stage.
I have now sent the complete package,
manuscript and artwork for “Sarina’s Farmer” to the publishers. Now I have to wait for their reading of it, their critical analysis and a computer proof copy before they can send me a hard copy proof version. (Having just re-read
that sentence, iI wonder if anything is ever “computer proof”? (Sorry, I’ll get my coat.)
A fond farewell and a seemingly empty house.
had our daughter Sarah and then our friend Jenny staying with us for the past month the house seems very empty now it is just Helen and me. It has been a wonderful few weeks And a real pleasure to enjoy their company.
After a four month break we were able to get back to NSFC.
At long last, after a four month break due to various illnesses, mine and Helen’s, we were able to get back to The Nova Scotia Folk
Club this week. It was lovely to catch up with our friends at the club and I felt good being able to get back ‘on stage’ again. I was able to do a spot but felt that my breathing needs a lot of working on.
Sadly, we had to leave at half-time again, this time as much due to Helen’s tiredness as to mine and as we left we received a round of applause, thank you NSFC, love you guys.

All the best,
Bob, Dad, Uncle or Cousin (which ever applies!)
The origins of my “Friday Offering”
Some years 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 there?)
