I want to thank the care committee and drivers for taking me to the doctor's after my heart attack and valve replacement operation. Thank you each and every one of you. You looked after me so well. Also thankyou to Mr Windsor for your help with my passport I couldn't have done it without you. When things are settled down I will give a donation.
When I used to knock around Bedlington with a few mates from Westridge we knew how to amuse ourselves. Knowing how to hockle well was a talent worth cultivating. Harry Wilson was the undisputed master. He knew how to howk up a pellet of phlegm, shape it to give it just the right heft and aerodynamics and propel it over an amazingly long distance with impressive accuracy. Once lying around on the grass at the tennis courts behind Holymount Square I saw him, from a sitting position, his back against the high chain link fence around the tennis courts, unleash a spectacular hockle straight up into the air and backwards over the fence onto the tennis court. We knew how to have a good time.
