Sorry to hear this news Billy & Kay. You're not one to give up easily, so let's hope you prove them wrong.

Identify yourself on this attached photo. Can't see anyone is big as you on it and even Mick Greenwood has a silth like figure. Was a good skive looking after you lot.

I'm still trying to dig out the photo the Greek lad from Levenshulme sent me of his sister. That would cheer you up !! I'll keep hunting it down.

Hope to see you at the next reunion Billy.

You might be right Algy, looks like the cheeky and likeable little sod I seem to remember, but not so little now.

Solly, Algie.
Thanks for the pic Solly It has taken me back more than a few years :lol: :lol: Kay has picked the same cheeky little sod out as both you and Algie and after getting the magnifying glass out i must come to the same conclusion :lol: :lol: just by going on the world cup willy jug ears :lol: :lol: :lol: and the drop short cap badge ( we re badged to the 14th/20th after the visit ). It has taken me the best part of 3/4 of an hour to get this in print due to the shakes :lol: and thats before a drink ( I wish ). Anyway the latest is , I have just had the district nurse visit and they are organising the doctor to visit along with the palliative care nurse tomorrow and looking into fitting me with a syringe drive to administer my painkillers :!: :!: :!: :!: round the clock to try and keep on top of the pain so it doesn't build up while i'm asleep and then kick me in the arse when i wake up so i'm keeping my fingers crossed it works more to give Kay some rest as much as me. Anyway fellas heres to the next reunion were all keeping our fingers crossed nad hoping to make it a good one, Kay sends her love and best wishes to everyone as os course i do so till we meet again. Take care

all our best wishes

Hi Bill Mate,

Good to see you are keeping cheerful, so that syringe administers vodka straight in then?

Look after yourself and Kay look forward to seeing you at the reunion in April or in Preston in November. If I am across in the Sheffield area I sometimes work in Mexborough I will let you know and call in for a brew.

Best wishes

Mac
