Mudgie if you are in North Wales consider having a pint of good quality
Samuel smiths beer at the Sir Gawain pub in Connahs Quay its near
the college.
Rex,
Thanks for that advice.
The nearest Iíve got to that recently was three pints of Sam Smiths OBB at £2 a pint in their Old Boot pub in Chester last Sunday afternoon.
Lees Bitter, also 4%, was £3.70 in Duttons just around the corner.

Max,
I think I used that one many years ago.
My parents met at Morfa Nefyn before the war.

Mudgie have not seen Lees ales for a very long time i do remember Britannia pub
in Halkyn used to be a Lees pub the ale used to be dire, i don't think it is a Lees
pub anymore, last time i visited probably about 25 years ago, it just off A55.

I used go to Blue Bell in Halkyn Steve owner had some really good ales in he also
had his own micro brewery, sadly he has recently sold it so i expect it will be quite
different now but they did win best Camra award in 2017 for their cider.

I used to throw it down like there was no tomorrow. One hangover from hell too many: 34 without. No hero, but don't miss the heeebie jeebies.  ::)

Wise decision Gibbo as i have just been told three of my old class mates
have died, two were alcoholics good lads who went down wrong path in
life, one i also worked with for over 20 years very sad, both lived on
their own, one his wife left him for some one else the other his wife died.

It's a bittersweet life sometimes, Rex. With addictive substances the emphasis can definitely be on the bitter. Sad story you tell, but honestly that could have been my route. Cheers my friend. ;D

Up to the age of 55 I was a regular drinker --I would call on my way from work"not driving" of course and still go out with mates 2 nights a week,since I have finished work I turn out each Monday with a group of chaps from my schooldays - but have not been out for a pint since 8th jan only due to the weathe. ::)

To be honest with you Rex the weather has played some part -the main thing is since I had my knee op I have lost a bit of confidence re/walking therefore I have to rely on my mrs to pick me up and sometimes she is unavailable.

George has your knee op been a success i believe they are very painful, do you think it was worth
having done. I have been offered one but i have declined it as i would only get it done if it was very
painful walking round and have not got to that stage yet.
