Eighty years young
Sunday 04 March 2012
If it's a birthday with a big number attached, it's worth celebrating twice, at least. And Joe did just that, with a modest event at the clubrooms on Friday followed by a larger affair at the Gild Hall Formby on Saturday. As can be seen, one of Joe's predilections was well catered for, and rumours of a Deltic or two were circulated as a strategic smokescreen.
And seeing Joe bopping the night away in the bosom of his family made one hope that we might all be so lucky come the day of our own big eight zero.
