The bulldog used to chase a gang of us and we all scattered.
I was about 9or10 at the time; the dog if you can think back was a churchill type, and it could certainly run, a lot faster than the todays bulldogs. Anyway Albert, you haven't changed much since last I saw you, let me in to the secret.

Bert, whippets and ferrets from the animal world are all i remember from those days, also remembering two lads that are no longer with us, your George and John Simm.

I had heard about George (my commiseration to you Albert) but not about John; I am slightly out of touch here. Albert, when you put not much hair now, do you mean, the dog, me, or yourself? The colour of the bulldog was predominantly white, with a few black patches, I assumed it was your dog Albert as it was nearly always there when you were; a friendly dog until some person tormented it. I remember 'Spot'.

Give my regards to Jimmy please Albert. You mentioned Mans' two worst enemies there; Oily Rags and Time.
