Chronometers of note and the most odd excellent timepiece had to be called out at last night's meeting of The Meath Writers' Circle in order to ensure there was no deviation from the constraints imposed by the imposition of "guidelines" and the observations and interpretations that might result therein should it rain on the day! Presided over by none other than the most senior member of the group who went to great lengths to stress the importance of the lengthening of vowels and what to do in the event of fire, matters were not improved by the introduction of strawberries. The staggered progress on the face of the Rolex caused someone to remark, "Sure what's a minute between friends!" Reduced to mere poetry we went our separate ways!
