October 2014


After having had conversations in the Sparrow and Al’s Dime Bar I went in a long established pub.

He has done real ale. He would do it in this pub, which he’s been in for 6 month, if it sold! When I snuck out I left the pub utterly empty.


The lass who’s attracted to nutters still works across the road, although she claimed to have give up on “all that.” I told her I had and all, but it wasn’t my own choice. At least she laughed. Give me another few decades and I might ask her out.

In the meantime there’s always beer.


On the Stott’s bus ( motorised breadbin, but friendly) getting here a bloke got on with a tenner or 10p short of the fare. Another bloke at the back shouted: ‘Wots thar short off Jeff?’ And gave him 10p. It’s friendly up here.

I had a long conversation about Slaitewaite with a random bloke on the pavement just around this bend.


It is a well entertaining pub, Debs is a cracking barmaid, who was very thankful that I found out how her daughter could activate her Samsung on O2’s G3.
It is very dog friendly, with friendly dogs. I had lots if conversations, not just because I had a pocket full of dog biscuits.
