Did you ever live in Parson Cross? (Part 2)

Recommended Posts

Surely you don't mean their Brian ?.

Brian once took me and Deso to a "night club" somewhere over the Pennines. He promised us wall to wall girls. Turned out to be a private gambling club. I genuinely feared for my life that night and never trusted Brian again.

I'm with Tash on the "Waste of Space" view Phil, but perhaps you knew a different Brian, before his descent into madness.

Surely you don't mean their Brian ?. He was spot on when they first moved in. In fact he was OK right up to his first nervous breakdown. After that he used to get really p****d when Joe's dog "Grip" used to beat him at cards whilst playing in the car park. Remember their Brian dragging Bill Smith and me out of the tap room to watch the dog, as Brian was sure it was cheating.

You couldn't say no to Brian at that time, as it wasn't in his vocabulary, and a refusal usually met with his tattooed hand grabbing your collar. He could be as quick as lightning, and thinking back now his hands were massive.

 

I never knew they had a son,but then again I lived a very sheltered life.

I think that by the time me and thee were drinking in there he`d more or less become a recluse who you hardly ever saw ,usually skulking around in the background , I remember him as I used to take bottles back for Ben Shaws Lemonade fro the off lisence and hed often serve there

 

He got into drugs and had breakdowns etc ,believe he passed away not long after they left (BUshy- Phil?) I know Joe and Edna moved to Bamforth and Joe only lasted a few months I think then had a hert attack and died and Edna wasnt long after :confused:
