I really do think this thread ought to stay on the board for as long as necessary!

Can anyone get Les Barker to pop in and post the story of how he nicknamed Dave the Tito Gobbi of the Balls Pond Road?

I guess it was Les Barker, Richard, but the first time I met Dave at Beckenham Folk Club he was introduced as The Tito Gobbi of the Balls Pond Road by John Barker of The Crayfolk.Slatts was there that night so he may know more,that was in January 1970! The rest,as they say, is history, maybe we can write a book? Between us there must be hundreds of stories.Next time you visit Dave ask him to tell you about the old lady in Beckenham who prodded him with her walking stick!

How about a sound recording of the stories, esp. of Dave himself telling them? There's nothing like actually hearing them from the "Tito Gotti's" mouth, eh? (I'd love to hear that one!)

Hi Dave. Hope the radiotherapy is having the desired effect. Bob very much wanted to come and visit with you before he left for Kings. The powers that be wouldn't let him ! We think it would have been good for the both of you to talk. Some of your positive attitude would have helped him. He is due to have a biopsy tomorrow (Thurs ) all being well. We are getting better, albeit slowly, and hope to see you next week. Meanwhile , all our love, and keep your end up (if they are not feeding you bromide !)

Dave is intending to have his laptop in the nursing home, so he will be able to get some stories down. He's busy planning his wake at the moment. I have suggested that he might like to be there!. If the nursing home are agreeable we may try to have a small session one afternoon.

When a friend - diagnosed as terminally ill - was first in hospital and then in a nursing home we visited him a number of times with our instruments. They paraded us down the hall - him in a wheelchair - to a day room with lots of plants and sunshine, and we'd play for an hour or so. He's been home now for about 6 years.

One never knows. Hang in there, the both of you. Sometines I wish one could just sleep while the body and spirit work together to bring one back to optimum health. You suppose that's what Rip Van Winkle was up to?

Dave Planning a wake! Character I know had his early so he would not miss it! The prognosis was bad so the local undertaker took him to to his Club in a hearse sitting in a coffin. He drank scotch till the early hours sitting in it ,and complained that it was too short, no room for the legs with lid on for the carry out. The guy is still about and fine years later ,positive thourghts Dave.

Oh my lordy, let the singing commence!!Dave told her that "a few" friends were just waiting for the chance!

Hi Dave, it was good to talk to you earlier on. Put us down for the gig. It will be fun to do "The nudist Song" with the man it was written about ! When you get your laptop, have a look at "Pubsongs in North West Kent." Lots of amusing stuff, posted by R. Bridge Esq. aka "The Marquis". Shall we all try to get this thread into the Guinness Book of Records as the longest thread ever ? It's got a little way to go yet we think, seen one with 250 plus !

Dave is very happy in the home and is getting excellent care. The first musicians are visiting on Monday (Ted Clark, Roger & probably Jim Radford- the Shantyman). We will try to arrange a proper session soon. Dave has asked me to post the address here. It is Whiteoak Court,Selby Close,Chislehurst, Br7 5RU. Could someone do a blue clicky for me? It`s good to know so many of you are thinking of him.

Dave's nursing home has put a 'curfew' on him as they want him to get some rest. Can anyone who wants to visit please avoid the hours 12 - 1 and 5 - 6, and don't go in after 8pm. (You can stay later as long as you are there before) Thanks to all those who have already visited, it's what keeps him going.

Poor Dave... being curfewed at his age! I'm surprised they haven't tagged him to stop him wandering down the pub!

Are you sure it's him that needs the rest or the staff that need the rest from him?!

Take care all.

I know we never were very close but you're part of our past and our happy memories that will always be with us.

So we are taking Tia Maria and Drambouie( spell check please) So all visitors,little bottles of sweet tasting and soothing tintures will be welcome!
I feel quite guilty about the curfew Dave, I was joking about the volume control,but would love to know how John knew where it was? Does he have one too?

We had a pleasant time talking of weddings that we had shared,the theme of weddings because Bill and I were en route home from Brixton Berts daughters wedding the day before,and had wedding cake for Dave and Linda... that set us off on " do you remember?"( I cannot remember the wedding yesterday, like father, like daughter! Bless you Bert you would have been proud!)
I love visiting Dave,he has such great stories and reminds me of so much fun.Too many memories for this page, but Dave get them down on the laptop!! And give my love to Breezey on Friday x
