Ah yes it's been a while. I was up the spice last week. Hope you're well sir. I'll probably run into you soon. It's ram and special and ruby murray going to see me through the rest of the winter.

Haven't been to the Railway Bell so much since we moved up and over the hill, miss popping in for a beer and chat after work - it's a proper locals pub. I will never forget watching England v. Argentina there in 1998 - what an evening (apart from the result). Hot sausages rolls and sarnies and nibbles came out at half time, Youngs was flowing and someone even lit up a cuban cigar.

Good to see you in the Bell yesterday Dazza. And always helpful to hear a Rigsby reference.

Ah yes.....a dusty old boozer full of beer bellied geezers leaning on the bar and chewing on pork scratchings - blends into all the other tired old boozers around and about. An abomination of a place ;)

(wouldn't choose to drink there but actually don't mind the place. Thought would give Dazza a taste of his own medicine :P Vive la différence at the end of the day - I hope all the pubs in the area survive and thrive).

Make sure you eat the whole pie this time, Dazza, unlike the christmas social where you ate all the fillings and left the crusts all over the table!
Such bad manners, we all knew it was you. :blink:
