Morning you lot, that was a marathon session last night, got 76 e-mail notifications this morning, haven't you lot got anything else to do, no wonder the country is in the state it's in,and there's poor old me working my fingers to the bone just to earn a crust and keep you lot in luxury. Still dry and cool here, lovely sunny day yesterday, I can now see the light at the end of the tunnel, two more days of graft and I'm footloose and fancy free.
Morning John you just keep doing what you do best and keep the country going. We'll keep the forum warm. I meant to ask before John, years ago there was a Signwriter in Green Lane Small Heath. It was either Connor or O'Connor you must have known him SB

SB , he wasn't a signwriter, he was a cowboy, he always wore a trilby and always had a cigarette in his mouth, he used to go round scribbling ion the outside of shop windows, for instance he would write CAFE for 7/6 in lod money, and then he was straight in the Avenue pub until it was spent, he was humoured by every signwriter in Brum, but at the same time he always seemed to make a living.
I know someone who did Day-Glo posters. Thanks for helping keep me in luxury Signman, where is the collection point? Or can you have my Champagne delivered to me? Oh yes, don't forget the Gravadlax. VM
