    Des, about four years after swallowing the hook I got a letter, it began Dear John, from the Tax office telling me I owed them money from about six years previous and how would I like to pay?

    Wrote back and said there is no way I would like to pay, suggest you contact the shipping company I was with at the time and ask then how they would like to pay.
    Heard no more.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    A few of us have had a dear John while away, funniest one I got was from the then girl friends mother. She told me that she did not approve of how I was leading her daughter astray. I use the word girl friend loosely. Her nick name around Hoylake was Raleigh and had nothing to do with Sir Walter
    We had an understanding
    DDS

    There was a wee fishing boat worked out of Hoylake called the Walter Raleigh just to get back about fishing boats & the thread.

    There was at one time a magistrate in Southampton.
    If a seaman was brought up in front of him they got the lot for what ever the punishment would be.
    Stroy was his daughter was found to be slightly pregnant after a night on the tiles with a seaman.

    Hey John, How does a lady ‘Get slightly pregnant’ ? A deliberate remark in appeal by the offending sailor, no doubt.
    What did they used to say “Took seriously something that was only poked in fun”. Never funny for the fair sex at any time. Keith

    If the story is true then I fear there may well have been more than one who came unstuck before him.
