  3. CALVERLEY SOUL CLUB LEEDS

    Well what can I say – but thank you, thank you and thank you. Had an inkling something was afoot when we parked up outside the club and Big Mick scuttled off pretty sharpish straight up the steps (summat I’ve never ever seen him do before). On his return I said “We’re you busting for the toilet or summat?” When his voice went squeaky as he said “No” - I knew then it was gonna be a ballon fest inside. Please let there be jelly and buns. I hope they haven’t got me a stripper. In all my years that was the first surprise birthday party I’ve ever had. A big round of applause all round must go to Diane for organising the club end of the deal (nice one). I can’t imagine how much time and effort my oldest buddy Big Mick must’ve put into marshalling the troops despite me driving him up the wall on a regular basis. It really was heart warming to see a lot of my closest friends there, please don’t think bad of me for not listing the names out – I’d be horrified if I realised afterwards I’d missed one or two names off. Those that were there could see everybody else that was there.You all did me proud. I’ll aim to thank everybody personally the next time I see them. When Big Mick dropped me back off at home afterwards he handed me the bundle of the A4 photo blow ups he’d taken back off the walls of the club and said “This is your life”. Blimey a lot of people I know take a good photograph. I just wish I did. Update: All the cards have been opened and read. All the buns got scoffed within a couple o’ days and I still kept my figure. I’m aiming to polish off the last few remaining bottles o’ cider before the weekend phew it's all go. Dx playlists to follow

    As British Summer Time ends in just a few weeks time - what happened to our summer up north? That looks like one very happy dog. And it still makes me chuckle every time. Dx

    Even the offer of Butch's complete record collection wouldn't get me on board this ship. Skippers like that win wars. DX

    This clip reminds me of the hours spent looking for a dog to rescue. It was heartbreaking. Eventually I picked out our Ruby. Dx

    I watch clips like this when I want to feel human, when I want to make myself cry. Dx
  8. My non music YouTube favourites thread

    Erm I'm sure I heard David say summat like "this is as good a descent as is possible to make" closely followed by a dull thud. I just don't know how on earth a small chick like that can survive that drop? Oh and throw in several collisions with the clif...
