The Foolishness of Youth


I found this picture whilst preparing to decorate my lounge.  It was taken on a “Boys” holiday in Great Yarmouth at age 19.  It was one of those never to forget holidays, but for all the wrong reasons.  We decided that we would go to see “Christie” who recorded the hit record “Yellow River” which reached #1 in June 1970. Well, as it turned out, we went to the local theatre to see the group but I got so drunk on double rum & coke that I collapsed in a heap and had to be carried out before Christie came on stage.  I spent the next 3 days recovering with my worst ever hangover and have never touched rum since.  I should add that I’m the good looking one in the middle without a glass in my hand. If only it had stayed that way!!
