Subject: RE: How many UK catters: Part 4
From: Dave Bryant

Muppet, If you used to go down to Appledore weekends, then we've probably met as well. I quite like the idea of putting Terry Pearson's bass on top of the signal. I can also think of an another amusing story about the aforesaid instrument.

I was walking along Rochester High St after one Saturday night at the Sweeps Festival when I was accosted by a policeman. "You look like one of the folk people", he said, "I wonder if you could help us". "There's an old gentleman (his description) over here and he's very upset because he's got separated from his wife" He led me over to the corner of a pub car park and there was Terry, in a rather inebriated and agitated state. "Oh David", he said "Thank god you're around - I've lost Myrtle !". The looks that we got from the constables after I explained that Myrtle was not his wife, but his double bass, showed that they thought all of us folkies were quite mad. I got Terry to tell me which pub he'd been in and sure enough, we found the Instrument propped up outside the toilet. "Oh yes" said Terry, "I remember now, I could hardly take Myrtle into the Gents with me !". To this day I don't know whether this remark was based on the possibility of damage to the instrument or it's supposed gender.

Great to hear from you Muppett - I don't know whether you remember me by name, but I'm the bloke who got you to give me the words to 'Settle & Carlisle Railway'. I still sing it to this day (last Tuesday in fact at the 8 Bells in Tenterden - and forgot the words!) I remember Appledore with great affection - the Railway Inn is now a motel!!!
If you fancy a return to the tropical south, try to make Tenterden FF next October - satisfaction guaranteed. Be good to see you again.

Born and bred in Halifax but now reside in sunny Dover. I see Dover is listed as the 32nd worst place to live in Britain, but it really isn't that bad, despite some negative publicity over recent years. Busiest ferry port in the world, despite the high prices for crossing only 21 miles to Calais. Thriving cruise terminal etc. etc.. Used to be a folk club here many years past but now the nearest one is in Deal and the Deal Hoodeners have been revived. Plenty of clubs in the area and of course Broadstairs folk festival is not too far from here.

What do you mean Dave - "We're only just over the border from Kent..."

You aren't saying you actually recognise these modern changes to Counties are you? Click on "Eltham in this list, and you should see an 1870 Map of Eltham - clearly marked as in Kent. (You'll be saying Walthamstow isn't in Essex next, and Tony Kendall will be coming after you.)

At Mr. Happy's prompting, I confirm that my mugshot, last known address and Date of Birth have been added to the files since I first posted to this thread.

[Note to non-UK readers of this thread; "Roysten Vasey" is the fictional town in which the rather dark comedy series, "The League of Gentlement" was set. Much of the filming was done in Glossop, where I live, and Hadfield, just over the hill. Other locations used were near Marsden, in West Yorkshire. Roysten Vasey is also the real name of comedian, Roy "Chubby" Brown, who appeared in some cameo roles in the series.

To be exact, I live roughly halfway between Manchester and Sheffield.]
