Phil's Birthday


My friend of 60 years Phil got married just a week ago to Iris . (He died last Sunday ) . 
Today was Phil's Birthday . We went out to mark this tonight. around Halifax with Phil's son Bryn ( my Godson) & 2 cousins & Marc & Ken . 
I love taking photos , but thought it would be "disrespectful" tonight to take any snaps . Then up pops the Landlord of The Royal Oak in Halifax , just before I left , asking to take a photo for the pub's facebook page....... Which is all a bit ironic as Phil thought facebook was bollocks!

Last Orders

Me, Martin , Hydn & Phil in Manchester in 2022


Sadly Phil recieved the news ( late Friday 8th March ) that his Cancer was now aggressive and "all"  that can be offered is Palliative Care.
 My brother Ziggy seems to be mending slowly . 
Huffy tells me that Hydn's pancreatic cancer is also agressive and he has only only been given 6 months. Huffy wants us to meet up for a "last drink" in Rochdale soon .Which will be both strange and moving 
.I doubt there will be photos.......
