So did I!
I once read that smoking and drinking were bad for you, so I gave up reading.

Did you pay any tax on your wages, or was it all "below the counter" ?  ???

Do you remember the riot in 1979 when the brits opened fire into the hall and shot Fonzy in the head.  (His poster)

I have to know you
That depends on what you want to know me for! If you're a tax-man, you don't know me at all! I used to be a waiter/part-time barman, depending on what mood Joe Fennell was in, but mostly waiter. I worked with Starsky and Hutch, Paddy Duffy and Billy Whatsisname. Was at the riot, in fact, I was one of two hospitalised at it! I got clattered by a ricochet from a rubber bullet. Was two nights in the Royal!
