I only went to Hammersmith, to see if George Whimpey could use my talents but no luck ( I was Glad he killed more Irishmen than the potato famine.)  :-\.  M did you drink in anyof the Heniken Pubs around Victoria the were great old pubs. the decor of those old pubs in London at that time was still old fashioned, and so comfortable. Today they try to copy those bars but fail, the owners, in there wisdom changed those old bars in to so called fun pubs, and now are trying to reproduce the atmosphere but to no avail... Mageeka i think you will agree as a person who lived there in the 60s, those old pubs have gone forever, like the people of that time never to be replaced....By the way I live in England and its nice to have met you.

Mageeka,

So sorry for your trouble with the Tree...Glad nobody was injured.
 You sure were busy in 64 in London A civil Servant... Bouncer... with an ear for music, who was neat and tidy, what a combination. ;). I bet you had no problem fitting in to life in the USA. The Americans like characters....Montrose
