Thread Name: tales of Pat Dunford
Subject: RE: tales of PAT DUNFORD
Thanks Hootenanny. I took Eck's name down as True-Love called it out from the kitchen. My ears are usually fairly well tuned to his accent but sometimes not. My fault.
The story about Pat Dunford's connection actually went like this. Pat turned up one day and said, "I've just found out that I'm related to Uncle Eck!" He was quite excited apparently. But that's all. And of course there's the hard liquor as Art says.
Sad little side note: Among Hildebrand's old friends it's the ones who got into the grip of the booze (and I mean really into the grip of it) who are all dead now. And sadly, even before the end, the music usually took second place with them as the grip got stronger. Cheery-bye, Joy
