St Sampson’s Over 60’s Club

A place I like to be

It’s there I practise amateur



I tell them I’m a doctor

“Retired now” I’d say

And book them in appointments

At a rate of 3 a day.


The most of them see through my ruse

But let deception pass

They know this chance to open up

May likely be their last.


Of course, there’s just a one or two

Who my advances snub;

But mostly I enjoy some crack -

                    In The Over 60’s Club.

Thanks MC. The women of the North have other attributes. They are strong enough to pull a plough and can floor a horse with one punch. So if that’s what you want.....

How intriguing when you're older
That behaviour becomes bolder
Disregarding the odd cold shoulder
Or the primly outraged scolder!
But I've heard it said of the north
That its womenfolk love to hold forth!

A whole new slant to "Eyes down" for the over 60s club. 😂

Pull “those curtains wide”.

If I get too busy, Kev, you can take one of my slots.

Do you tell them that even though you're retired, you like to keep your hand in.
I bet you were round there at Christmas for the Knees-up
