    Default a night to remember

    Hi Brian,

    I did reply to your email but it bounced back from your spanish address. Seen your company photo, your not looking to bad, although you've lost that Paul Simon look, but so has he. I'll pick my best photo taken fifty years ago and send it. We had some good memories from the Rathlin that only seem like yesterday, do you recall the 'night to remember' in Montreal, me in top bunk which was like a roller coaster that night, so much so I had to bunk down in smoke room. being the fellow you were you did offer to share. What about young Desi have you any idea where he might have gone? also Eric White and Harry Thompson, he was a real nice guy, is he still around. someone asked about Billy Gardener, last I heard of him was that he got a very badly broken arm. Michael Knigh ( beak) came to see me some time ago, he's a skipper on tug boats in N.Z. had an only son who was killed on a motorbike. Do you remember your special cargo hook? We've had a bad time with bushfires here, not far at all from where we live, except for that, all is well. We spend every weekend on the beach relaxing and partying.

    Well Brian all the best,
    good luck good health,
    cabbin mate raymond.

    A very warm hello to Brian (Mouse) and Patricia Saeye LOL Mr Saeye was last seen living on the Antrim Road among the "Hob Nobs)
    This is Brian Skillen whom you all knew as "Commodore" on the Inishowen Head, Roonagh, Fair,Carrigan,Torr Head.
    Mouse and I were bunkmates (not literally). Brian was into racing Mini Coopers in the time of Paddy Hopkirk.
    I still have photo`s of Brian and Raymond along with Roger Lever,Spike,Gothic in the famous Bee Hive Bar in Bootle Liverpool. They are in the house somewhere.
    best wishes
    brian

    PS. Have also crossed words with Mike Alexander (also in photo)

    Default Unsuccessfull fishing lesson

    Hi Brian, nice to see your alive and well. Its been along time since we crossed paths, almost fifty years. We were both on the Fair Head and as I recall you give me my first unsuccessfull fishing lesson from the boat/deck in Chicago. You and I had motorbikes and we used to race them up and down the docks, I had the Honda and I'm not sure what your machine was, I also recall you went with a girl called Barbara Holland in Chicago. Yes, Brian was more into cars, I went with him on a test run / Dundrod course, he never slowed down coming into hairpins. I have been living in Australia for almost twenty three years now, and no I have'nt changed my name to patricia, thats the wifes' name. Any how it was good to hear from you, Raymond
