Having just noticed that the initiator of the latest "book" thread left the site taking the discussion with him, it's my turn again to revive it; being too important a topic to be dropped, imo.

Having finished "Get Carter" by Ted Lewis over the Holidays, I'll soon start with "Jack Carters Law", a prequel set in late 60s Soho.

    • Absolutely!! :-D

    • I have to admit that I have always found it a bit bizarre that some people,  even in this day and age would think that men should drink certain drinks and women should stick to certain others; to me it is nonsensical. Way back in the late 50s or early 60s both vodka and lager were promoted as being a women's drink, now such an idea would seem absurd. I think it shows a lack of intelligence if you ask me MG, and you had fancied smoking a cigar then it would have been none of their business either.

    • Exactly, Chris! :-D

      However, I am in Ballarat, not Melbourne and some of the yokels - I mean locals - are very backward and set in their ways. I know I can be that way with some things, but it doesn't define me... I actually tried my first cigar last NYE thanks to a Skinhead mate of mine who taught me the fine art of smoking it. LOL! Suffice to say, it wasn't that great and I must admit I felt a bit stupid doing it. Oh well! ;-)

    • Classic!

    • Great story Gary and it sounds like a fine way to pass a few hours. You never let us into the info on how much it cost, or is it too horrific to reveal without trauma ha ha

      • Yeah nice little anecdote, Gary! :-)
    • Only a fiver Chris. Considering the history and condition (ex/mint), a very good price... I think he let me have it at that because I knew the track and "someone with the letter P" was Lou Pride - I'm Com'un Home In The Morn'un. Who he said he saw live at the Marquee Club ;0)

    • That is a fantastic buy Gary. Great classic northern track too is that Lou Pride number.
