Ascension : AU REVOIR THE COOK FAMILY
Submitted by The Islander (Islander Editors) 16.08.2012 (Article Archived on 30.08.2012)
The Cook family would like to thank all our friends for a fantastic “splashdown” on Saturday night/Sunday morning!!
Especially thanking Ceddie (for being Ceddie), Sylvie (for being kind and generous), Cheryl (best co-ordinator on the Island), Robert (for the bar), Glenda (for the fantastic cakes!), David (for the disco), Anna (for being an artist), Luke (for being another kind of Artist!), Kristian (for his fantastic dancing skills) and everyone who came, danced, ate, drank and enjoyed the evening/morning!!
Our departure from Ascension has made us feel quite poetical, so here’s a ditty for all our friends …
The Cook family came to Ascension
To work and to walk, and to play
They found it quite hot, and food cost a lot
But they settled in Bungalow
Paul played the church organ on Sundays
With Milenko he cycled on Mondays
Thursday evening with Ceddie, with guitar at the ready
Museum on Saturday and more …
Their time on the Island passed quickly
There were so many things to do
Mountain paths to be climbed and treasures to find
And making of friendships new
So au revoir to all of our Saint friends
We’ll certainly meet soon again
Be proud of your wonderful Islands
And let’s make “happy clappy” return!
AU REVOIR FOR NOW
PAUL, LORNA AND KITTY XXX
