    hi john sabourn.
    im just sitting here listening to my radio a beautiful rendition from patty labelle and michael mcdonald called ( im on my own ) which is apt as the wife has gone out for the day and its the first days relaxation im having for nearly two weeks after being out playing on my boat. and as my body is aching.
    sorry to hear about cappys shed, i did hear on the grapevine that he had been brewing poitin and he had tried to build up the proof of the alcohol by adding white spirit, but set fire to the shed instead. thats where danny boy comes into it as he was singing that very song when all hell broke loose.
    as for the sleep apnea, its my wife whom suffers like you of that terrible problem which the word ( malaise ) covers adequately, and often throughout the day or night finds her falling asleep for moments at a time,
    im sure cappy will be back on his feet with his new mind blowing get further rich scheme of building the maze, obviously he has a good business head and knows that further troubles are on the horizon come the 12th july so hes getting the maze ready for occupation,
    tom

    Was the hospital called the Gables Marian, if so my wife was born there , she was born a fortnight before war was declared , and I often say she was the cause of it. She was taken back to Gateshead and was only allowed north of the river in 1957 , where she lassoed me so as to not be deported. Cappys ancestors escaped from a Viking longboat , while the rest of the crew were in the ferry inn. Cheers JS..

    #67, Fine building John,

    ''The Gables was the home of the Richardson family, owners of the Elswick Leather Works and was built in the mid 1870's.
    The Gables was purchased in 1919 from the Richardson family and became the Princess Mary Maternity Hospital. This then moved to new premises in Jubilee Road and it was decided that The Gables should be totally independent. In 1948 the NHS decided not to take The Gables over in its rationalisation of local health services and by 1950 it was in financial difficulties. It was then forced to close and was sold to the Salvation Army who renamed it the Hopedene Nursing Home. This was closed in 1974.
    After that it operated as a hostel which closed in 1994.''
