Due to the general unattractiveness of the branch membership (Laura and Punchy being the exceptions) I would just like to wish you all a Happy Valentines Day, as I believe that in these enlightened times, an ugly puss is very little reason (Some of you are very, very ugly!) to deny you the basic human desire of feeling loved and wanted, well wanted at least and not in a judicial way, let’s settle for needed, someone must need you if only to poke fun at, to answer the phone and take messages (badly) in her absence and to produce enough dirty clothing to make a weekly wash worthwhile. Look on the bright side, if it wasn’t for dunking your face in the River Ex’s mud as a boy you may well have been even uglier, like a Picasso painting that has been left out in the rain! WW.
Happy Valentines Day!
