This website is just amazing. I have only just discovered it but an going to enjoy trawling through it for a long time to come 🙂 Kepp up the good work.
Too much for me to read in one night. Loved the Boys Village post, and Pick’n'(re)Mix. It just about sums it up, whatever it is.
I live in Aberdare too. Just a bit older than you, I used to frequent the Moon Club, behind and above the old Fruit Market on the Hayes, Cardiff. If you thought Bogies was shabby… (Suggest look at the notes under the words for “Another Country” on Small Symphonies).
Excellent stuff – I’ll be back.
Still loving the blogs, and hope that they wont ever stop! Oh, and it doesnt have to be a lonely Xmas, some people have worked over their insecurities, and may be worth the effort now 🙂 I hope you get in touch! xxx
I loved your article on “Another One Bites the Dust”. Writings like this mean a lot to someone who was born and raised a stones throw from The Mount. I recognized several of the characters you mentioned, i.e. Bill Edwards, Dai “Narrow” (a neighbor), and Meredith Morgan the preacher. The Mount was my father’s “local”, and I spent many happy hours there as a kid enjoying crisps and pop. I left Aberdare for the United States in 1966 (I guess the year you were born), but still have a very special place in my heart for my hometown.
I love reading your blog Steve. Some of it goes over my head, I suppose too many years of hard living but I enjoy it all just the same. Many thanks for sharing not only your life but your thoughts as well, it shows what a clever and articulate chap you really are and how you’re not afraid to voice your opinions.
Thanks for that, Neil. I like to put a bit of work and a bit of thought into it, good to know it’s appreciated. See you soon, mate 😉
Oh, this looks like it will be loads of fun & enlightening. Glad the Cosmic Randomness pulled you up in related articles land. 🙂
Welcome aboard, Keith, glad to kind-of meet up 😉
Hey I just ran across your website. I hope you are still doing it. Actually I was googling “Jack Trevor Story” and landed on you. Cheers!
I am still writing, but not on WordPress – I relocated to Blogger about a year ago. The link is in the last entry, if you call by again. I bought a couple more of Jack’s books in a market stall a while ago, but I haven’t had chance to start them yet. 🙂 Good hunting!
