Hi Agideo, If our Frankie was in your class, you know what he was like, up to all the mischief. i would probably know you, as half if not all of Slate St school came in and out of our house in those days. he did box for the Mac and a pretty good boxer he was to. We all miss him a lot. :(

Hi feejeeks, or would i be right to say mister Burns, are you Felix, John Or Peter? Dont keep me guessing, if you are who i think you are, i was talking to you on an other forum a while back. I was so sorry to hear about your mum, as you know her and my mum were great friends and your brothers and mine were too. We had some great times in our St. i remember your granny, i wish we could turn the clock back to those good old days. Let me know if i'm right and i,ll pm you. O0

Hello again agideo, so you didn't come from Servia, did you move to the Murf from down our way, and where are you now. Yes Frankie was full of fun anything for a laugh, did you know Digus McCusker? (rip) when those two got together it was like a pantomime. Like i said they were good times and happy ones too. O0
