“All right?”

“Not so bad. You?”


“Not so cold today.”

“At least it’s dry. How’s the wife and kids?”

“Driving me up the wall. Jan says to me yesterday ‘You know I can still fit into my wedding dress?’ I says ‘If you want to get married again, I’ll give you away!’”




A space where a grumpy old Yorkshireman speaks his mind on what interests or annoys him.
