A true story of Patti’s time in Kenya, organized holidays in Massai camps with her children. Observing the migration of Wilderbeast, stray ones being hunted by lions, At a dinner party, her son went missing and was found in the Massai encampment, they brought him back fast asleep. Innocent times indeed.

June : Breton Tales

More of June and Charles’ life in France, They try to buy a dilapidated house near them belonging to Marcel a bad tempered farmer next door,  who eventually agrees to sell to them but must offer it to his sister first, cash price did not cover the value of the property. But she backed down so all’s well that ends well. Another book I think June.

Another of John’s experiences of a training course when he was on active service, don’t drink and shoot guns!!


Bob :Breath Easy

Another scene from Bob’s screenplay of his book. We all took part in the reading in which Carver comes up against Megan Crane for the first time. Jess is concerned by his reaction to her………………..

The story goes on when she had a third child and he was adoptedYears later he tracked her down and they were re-united. Her Downn syndrome child died in 2019, and her third child still visits her in Cyprus. This is real life experience get it all written down.


A very full meeting with a large range of subjects. John came over for Jenny’s wedding nice to see him again.


Note From JG

I would like to thank the group for welcoming me back on my visit to the PWG. It was great so see you all in the flesh.

After the meeting 8 of us stayed on for lunch in the restaurant an it was great to catch up. This included a brief discussion on the use of expletives.

A solution was proposed that we introduce a watershed of say 11.30 (flexible) before which language would be moderated to accommodate the sensibilities of some members who may wish to leave at that point.

To assist in this submissions should be marked with an X rating.

Perhaps we could put this on the agenda for the next meeting

Thank you all.

John Goodwin

Former chair PWG now in UK
