13 days into lockdown! As I look longingly at my new baby,OKTO Villa no 54, parked up with nowhere to go,all plans in place but not knowing when they can be executed, our minds start to wander back to a time when we were younger, when the ability to solve problems lay squarely in our own hands,life was for the most part carefree,family and friends close.
But age creeps on, families grow into their own futures,friends remain and when you can get out there,new friends are made.
To caravaner’s, friends old and new have you ever thought of getting out there as members of an “Old Toppies Club” doing “daft things” away from the eyes of family who who would skywards at ” inappropriate” behaviour.
Caravan Parks will be struggling for some time after this Covid 19 virus has subsided and would be willing ( I think) to give exclusive use of sites to an “Old Toppies Club” for special events.
Disco’s 60’s to 70’s music – 4pm to 7pm – legs would be gone after 3 hours!
Sports days – 20 meter Egg and Spoon races,Sack races, Hopscotch, Whiskey Tasting, Cake Competitions, and any other of a myriad of stupid things we used to do,most importantly laughter and companionship.
This club would only be open to people between 60 and 110 years.
Anybody out there who would like to share this experience, or am I just bored,old and bonkers.
