“Not really mate, you work it out; you’re flight alone would be fifty quid then your cabin another fifty maybe more and then the cost of hiring a boat that would be at least another fifty. So you’re saving fifty quid.’

“I will just have to work a few half shifts on a Saturday down at the garage to cover the cost.’

“Give up a few pints of a weekend and you’ll have the money in no time at all.’

“What give beer up; no way?’

Tom went into his bag and pulled out a six pack of Carling Black Label lager and he passed one to his friend.

He pulled back the ring with a squelching sound as the lager frothed up over the top and he put his lip to it so that he didn’t waste any.

“Are you coming out tomorrow night then?’

“Is the Pope Catholic, came the stern reply.’

“Jimmy Fothergill and Hilton Walk and his brother will be out.’

“What about Mickey Baker.’

“Any good turns on at the King Street Club tomorrow night matey.’

Aye there Billy Lort who is a crackin’ chanter and there’s Linda Wright yer na the one with the big thrupenny bits.

“She got a tight bum an aal Kidda.’

Cassie nearly burst out laughing at that and had to smother her giggles in her blanket.’

“There’s this comedian on called Mike Elliot he’s really funny I saw him last year and he had me creased I tell yer.

He told this joke about two dwarves who were man and wife and were celebrating their tenth anniversary they both had a lisp and found it difficult to pronounce words.
