 School News

Within a few weeks of losing his father, Peter Mayo’s mother passed away. We offer our condolences. She was also the mother of the late Michael.

Change of e-mail address :- John Timms;

We have recently received detailed letters of the pastoral work abroad of Fr. Henry McLaughlin, and Fr. Giles ( Nicholas Connacher).

No sooner were we trying to get information about Bernard Wynn-Williams, and satisfying ourselves that he had survived the Christchurch earthquake, when the huge Japanese earthquake and tsunami struck, and we were trying to find out if Derek Massarella had survived. We are happy to report that he has made contact and is alive and well.

It is always pleasing to announce that FPs have met again after many years. The other week, Charlie Duthie, Chris Barlow, Paul Gunn, Roddy Zentil, Bill Parry, and Lindsay Wilson met up for lunch and a long reminisce. Roddy and Paul had not met since 1963. The total number of school years accomplished by this group was 51 years.

We read with interest that one FP thinks that smaller is better, and more beautiful. Ron Delnevo, the Managing Director of the Bank Machine Company, which supplies Hole in the Wall cash machines throughout Great Britain, and, no doubt, further afield, have started to introduce machines which dispense £5 notes, and they are proving popular.

It was recently reported in the Edinburgh Evening News that Gerry D’Agostino was introduced to a hotel guest in Mijas, Spain, by an old Spanish hotelier friend, as Senor Langoustino. There is no truth in the rumour that Gerry is shellfish ( selfish).

 In the same report, his brother, Bert D’Agostino, that well known  East Lothian (the Castle Inn, Dirleton) restaurateur, has taken to growing a beard. Rumour has it that he was so pleased to see pictures of himself in his younger days with a full head of hair, that he is considering a transplant to try and again attract members of the opposite sex, but your scribe thinks it will take more than that.
