Droitwich Lions Club 7

Not long after the club was formed some of the members started a Stroke club (which is still going). Alec, Gwen Ted and Joan were amongst the founders. The club supported them and we used to host an annual Christmas party for the members.

Right...wot's a stroke party, then guv?

I am imagining a member brings a pet sheep, stuffed toy, or piglet, and everyone pets it...
Bill Phillips: A stroke, sometimes referred to as a cerebrovascular accident (CVA), cerebrovascular insult (CVI), or colloquially brain attack is the loss of brain function due to a disturbance in the blood supply to the brain. This disturbance is due to either ischemia (lack of blood flow) or hemorrhage.[1]

Ischemia is caused by either blockage of a blood vessel via thrombosis or arterial embolism, or by cerebral hypoperfusion.[2] Hemorrhagic stroke is caused by bleeding of blood vessels of the brain, either directly into the brain parenchyma or into the subarachnoid space surrounding brain tissue.[3][4] As a result, the affected area of the brain cannot function normally, which might result in an inability to move one or more limbs on one side of the body, failure to understand or formulate speech, or a vision impairment of one side of the visual field.[5]

And presumably you have never done the washing up before or since this was taken
Bill Phillips: I have been doing it every day for over 40 years. I wash Ange dries!

a very nice scene - and Bill is really a 'schöner Mann' with a charming smile!
To Chris: I recall that Michael, Lisl's husband, is used to wash up, the English men appear to be rather emancipated.
Bill Phillips: I wash Ange dries. Occasionally we use the dishwasher.
You found your vocation in life I see..
Bill Phillips: True. I am an expert at washing up
i am just like you Bill, the only activity in the kitchen I am any good at
Bill Phillips: Hahaha Actually I can cook too!

What's this? Where are the women when you need them to do the washing up? Thank the Lord for dishwashers.
Bill Phillips: We seldom use ours. More trouble than they are worth

I can see you are a natural Bill - you wouldn't like to pop round and do ours afterwards would you?
Bill Phillips: In a word....no. I have had over 40 years practice. We seldom use the dishwasher, they are more trouble than they are worth

The young Bill, and still shining today!

Dear Dr Phillips, I have been getting headaches lately and aspirin does not seem to help. I find it eases off when I move away from yellowbear's photographs.
Bill Phillips: I advise only looking at the photographs of Blackdog

My advice: Chad should visit gutteridge's blog today -the choccie box picture might ease off his headaches!
This is a thing I hate doing, and the dishwasher does it so much better than me! Your are a brave man Bill.
Bill Phillips: I prefer to do it by hand!
So good to see domesticated men, Bill. You really haven't changed a lot.
Bill Phillips: Certainly not for the better anyway grin
Now Fairy should try that for their marketingsmile
Bill Phillips: Now hands that do dishes can be soft as you face!
I am liking these old pictures. You fellows must have been having a share of the wine with all those smiles.
Bill Phillips: Possibly!
Team work in action, Bill, and plenty of smiles to boot.
Bill Phillips: We have had some fun over the years Beverly
