Thanks for that Toss I'm feeling better already! Yes I finished playing some weeks before it finally closed due to bad health.Most of the guys have joined other clubs but they are in agreement they miss The Little Gem as we knew it.A group of us meet for a coffee, chat, and a bit of craic akin to the Nineteenth.Memories !!

No problem Rocker I've been so happy to read the numerous posts by so many of you each day and the simple pleasure that they bring.Memories are revived, old neighbours mentioned and best of all- the wit that flows so freely from you all.Long may it continue!

Harjoe,
I know I should have done this years ago - but- any chance I could buy a couple of your books?
Time is telling and i'm getting close with my son. Got to teach him the "True Religion". He was star in his own right, except Cricket and Aussie Rules don't really count.
Anyway time to let the newcomers know about your historical and literary achievements. hellllo hellllo hellllo
If it don't make your ears bleed, it ain't rock 'n' roll!
