Oh no.  Bombarded with post again tomorrow.  Thanks for warning me, Jimmy.  Three new pms.  This will be the start of my Valentine good wishes.   

I was stopped and breathalysed on the motorway.  The police woman said I was weaving in my lane.  Result was zero.  She said maybe it was the bright lights.  But it wasnít.  No.  I was eating an apple and a pear and I hate sticky hands.

Happy Valentine, dawlings.  .

Good to hear from you Lilian.  You just post and vanish.  I always felt we would meet when Jimmy came home, but it wasnít to be the last time he came.  It would be so much easier for you both if one of you could drive.  Wonít effect the Duke of Edinburgh much.  Heíll just call the chauffeur to drive him. 

I was up at the City Hospital visiting a friend and I was driving down the street in front of the Black Man towards the markets area.  It may be Howard Street Iím not sure.  I drove really slow passed Royal Avenue to try to see the Bank Buildings and I think I did.  It was like a ghost.  It was dark and hollow.  It will never be the same.  I would pay towards having it brought back to its former glory BUT I would keep Primark well away from it.

All the beautiful classy shops replaced by cheap junk shops.  Beautiful buildings,the Ritz, the Opera House replaced by dull uninteresting buildings like Juryís Hotel is it?  Oh Belfast.  What is happening to you?  I hardly know you now.  Yet they say you are a boom town.  Where are your architects?  Where are the beautiful buildings for the next generation?  I even loved the old cobbled stones of Dickson Street and in the entries off Roden Street.

Yes.  The flowers were beautiful, Jimmy.  Thank you..  Such old world charm.  Roses and Lily of the Valley are my favourites. 

I used to go up the entries looking for a Billy Fury look alike from Excise Street that Iíd heard about.  All the girls called him Hot Lips.  You might have known him.  I think they said his name was Dawson.  He ended up being my toy boy.  Cheek.

No, Jimmy.  Dawson wasní t the Billy Fury look alike.  I was looking for the Billy Fury look alike but I found Dawson instead.

Where did you get the photograph, James?  Thatís Dawson sitting on the seat waiting for me.  The old romantic.  He even brought a couple of love birds.  Keep it to yourselves but I hear heís taking me to Paris.

Hi Colin, Love.  More rules and regulations.  I always keep chat with the police to a minimum.  Sweet as honey and really polite.  Then they want to breathalyse you.  So Iím sweet as honey and really polite but I donít tell them anything like my hand are sticky and Iím looking for a wipe to clean them.

If you donít hear from me soon, Iíll be in Paris.  Dawson is so good to me.  One piece of advice.  Get yourselves a toy boy, girls.  Charming man.

"He even brought a couple of love birds."

Doubtless from Gresham Street, didn't they used to to have them in the window,... along with the pups. ?

I suppose that he probably sang to you as well.  :)   https://youtu.be/rreSts3jwPA
