I have just updated my profile but the first two pictures aren't quite as recent as the last two,a lot of water has passed under the bridge in the meantime.

You've come out a treat young fella. But I have to say you look too youngon that photo to be drinking alcohol? Just doing my public duty you understand.

That photo Ozzielass,was taken at Butlins,Filey,in the summer of 1957,just prior to my 19th birthday. One of my older sisters did my hair for me but unlike the 7/6d blow-wave others had done at the hairdressers mine became permanent,no matter how often I had my hair cut,that's why I like to keep it short now.
Can you guess where the other photo was taken( that was in '61)?

No idea Roy where that photo is - somewhere in Wigan is the best I can do.

It was Blackpool,Albert Rd.,I think. I think I still am,Disco, after all beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. Despite the opinion of others I am still a looker but not a toucher,and I've learned to duck for when I look too close and smile.

" A looker but not a toucher", hey Roy. Are you sure your from Wigan? Because all Wigan fellas touch, then look and then get a slap.

Actually no Disco,as I think I've mentioned before,I'm an 'onourary Wiganer having been born in Chorley and raised as a gentleman,a respecter of the fair sex and besides my wife has a mean left hook.
And yes Keno,yet another of my many virtues.
