The Ring and the Finger

Wedding Rings by Jeff Belmonte

At the cocktail party, one woman said to another, “Aren’t you wearing your wedding ring on the wrong finger?”

Parachute

Music from the guitar, keyboard, flute and singing voices of Charlotte Miller and Vicki Smith filled The Marble Hill Pub, East Twickenham, along with over 70 pre-schoolers and their parents last Thursday (21 April 2011) morning.

It was For Sanity’s Sake’s Easter Party with Tempo Tots and the little ones were Easter bunnies, hopping to the live music and hunting out toys from behind big, cut-out, colourful eggs.
