Reading all these messages makes me feel 17 all over again, would that looking 17 was so easy. Many thanks John for inviting us to your Birthday Bash it was a great night. So many people I could remember and did and many I should have remembered and didn't !!

A number of posts mention Ted Owens, a few years back Brian and I tried to contact him, we drew a blank after he left YHA., so Ted if you're a secret "mudcatter" please get in touch.

A message for Rod Davies: If you keep the photo of me serving in the Moose out of circulation I'll keep the one I have of the very young Bluegrass Ramblers under wraps. Wiilie Russell also sent me a photo of a session at the Moose. The only suitable caption I can think of for it is " does your mother know you're out? " everyone looks impossibly young.

Lots of Posts about Bernie and the Parrot, amongst a million memories I have an abiding one of "Nellies" football team playing in a snow storm somewhere on the Wirral, after abandoning the game the whole team and it's supporters turned up en masse at John Gothards sisters house, the poor woman unfortunately lived nearby, She borrowed chairs,cups and mugs from her neighbours and gave us all succour until we could leave for a session which I think was in the "Travellers Rest". Harry Boardman was booked for the evening but because of the snow he couldn't make it so Bernie (with parrot) gave the performance of his life. That was a night to remember and one where I really did think dying laughing was a distinct possibilty.
