I have been offered to ride Route 66 with clubs that go every 3 years they know it backwards but I have left it open the last club leaves in September so plenty of time to think of what I'm doing  I was always told bad news comes in 3 (s) now number 2 may have arrived  but have to wait till more tests are done     Here's hoping good news                regards   Colin

These were posted in December 2011 in reply to a picture that had been posted by boxer1949,...

Everytime I see that scrapyard at the corner of the Cullingtree Road I thank them for pulling me out of many a hole. Was it Stows ?

  No Stows was in the Markets two guys own that yard Frank McGreevy the other guy cant remember his name it will come to me got it Leo Donaghy

Hi James and Boxer sorry don't recognize any in this photo the bricked up door behind them doesn't help I don't remember any houses bricked up in my time  Houses were bricked up to stop people moving into them before knocking them down                  regards   Colin
