Many thanks to my Bear Carer Sean Whelan for escorting me to the Elvetham Lodge Ladies Festival last night. Another wonderful event celebrating the ladies of the Lodge. The President, W.Bro. Jon Whitaker and his Lady were particularly resplendent. Photos are posted of me with guests relaxing before the evening commenced at the hotel. At the festival I was seated at a table with lovely people who catered for my every need, I rather fear I may have had a little too much alcohol again, I am still learning my limits. I really must have a little more decorum when in the company of ladies. A tremendous surprise was to meet Raffles, the 2005 Festival Bear. We got on really well, I thought he looked very smart in his red bowtie. A terrific event where everyone had a super time. Thank you to everyone who helped me have a lovely evening.
