Just a quick, but very big thank you for celebrating my birthday with me and for all the birthday wishes, cards and presents, I had a ‘do’ at Walkden Legion on the 16th November (the week after my actual birthday) it was a very emotional night because my friend Denise promised me that she “wouldn’t miss it for the world”…..unfortunately she lost her battle against cancer 2 months before so I decided to have a really big picture of her on stage with me so I made sure she didn’t miss it.
I was overwhelmed with the amount of people there and all the bottles of whiskey that was given to me (about 20 bottles altogether) and I’m sure they’ll last a week or two !!!!
Anyway I must say a big thank you to the 3 DJ’s that turned up, Stan James for starting off the evening and playing great stuff from the 70s, Steve Sale for being a total ‘cheesey jock’, which is just what was needed with my family & friends and of course not forgetting my good friend DJ Trev for playing great soul music and generally holding the night together for me and Collette for that fantastic Beatles birthday cake…..THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU !!!
Thanks also to Carr’s in Bolton, for delivering 200 pasties with mushy peas, red cabbage & beetroot and didn’t get any myself but I was told I must order them again for my 70th !
If anyone took photos of the evening, please send them to me via facebook or email and I’ll post them here as soon as I get them.
