I thought I recognised the building, I didn't realise it used to be a forge. Its a nice place I've always admired it. I used to drink in the Cock just down the road from there, not that I would any more. I popped in there a few years back to have a drink with my sister and brother in law who were over from Ireland (don't ask they are both born & bred brummies).

I was absolutely disgusted what they had done to the pub, it used to be a lovely quiet country pub, now they have knocked all the rooms into one and its a young louts paradise. They have bouncers on the doors who just watch lads rolling round the floor fighting. I don't think I will be going there again.

Used to drink in there myself Phil, many moons ago, like you say totally ruined now, like so many of our old locals, and I don't mean me.

Should have gone to work, bored out of my brains, messing around just turned Denise's photo into a framed watercolour.

Good Morning Denise,

It's quite bright in Yardley, the temperature ends in a zero. Actually it starts with a zero as well.
Some idiot has sprinkled flour all over my car.

Morning all,
Just been for my morning stroll, very sunny and bright, not too cold, frost only in gardens, all in all a glorious day.
Off to do the Eton job about 10 ish, will take me until 6 ish and same tomorrow, then I'm doing nothing until after you know what, unless someone offers me a few grand to write Seasons Greetings on their window.
Have a nice day ya'll,SB when do you get your free mince pie and glass of grog for being the best customer Chris has got.
