  1. Some great photos of those fun times.

  2. Hello David, what a fabulous surprise! I will be in touch soon. Ciao,ciao. Marlene

    1. Hi Marlene, Great to hear from you. I have had the help of Mikey Sterne, John and Michele Shanahan, and John Paxton in writing about our fun times in the 1970's. I have also reconnected with Pat Myhill (GF of Paul Overton for awhile).
      I would love to write to you by email and correct any of my stories, get new ones or just some information on how you are.
      My email is: if you would like to write.
      Hope to talk soon. All the best and keep well. David x
