Jamie's 21st Birthday Bash was held at home on Saturday night, July 3rd 2010.
Ted and Carol Kenney dropped in prior to the event to see Jamie. Carol has unfortunately injured both ankles and walks with difficulty. James Twohill's parents John and Kim came as did Bernard and Alex Young's mum, Cecelia. Jamie really appreciated seeing all these well wishers.
Initially it was quite a blokey party with the ladies lobbing in later in the piece.
Le mob despite this was very well behaved apart from Jamie's father who attempted a speech from the height of the kitchen bench after a number of tequila slammers.
This attracted howls of derision, ''gibberish'', ''unintelligible'', ''I say Charles, I think he's a touch tiddly, what?'', ''get down ya mug''. In the end his long suffering wife Denise floored him with a rugby tackle and administered his medication.

I found some words
fell from each other
to form a sound, a poem of sorts,
a series of sounds.

they slipped away
being on loan for your
they did the bolt
the Harold Holt
but all that's left
is all that's best and
all I really wanted to say
