Dear Jane
I lived in Hetheresett for 10 years in the 70s I used the Greyhound regularly (perhaps too regularly ;o)) I knew eric and his family well. i also remember the old boys i played crib with, with great affection..alfie the black smith i can see hom now laughing away,and there was arthur and taffy and his brother. He was a cowman and worked at the dairy milking the cows.He also fell out of my car completely sloshed one saturday afternoon as i took him home!.How i picked him up i do not know ! lucky eddie...they are just a few names i remember...each one was a true character and all loved their pint of twos! We also played pokie die ... for a round of drinks.It could be a free days drinking or could cost you a fortune.It was taken deadly seriously although there was plenty of laughter too.No prisoners were taken in that game.!
But what i remember most about the greyhound is erics plea to his youngest son who loved to play the fruit machines..Willy! Blast me! won't you come off that machine! only cos he wanted to get on it himself LOL...
Fond memories indeed.
best regards
