Could everyone write one simple essay about something that once happened in Saltaire…that they saw or were a part of…and put it on one big website? Somebody should collect a lot of stories before we all forget. Otherwise it is like a line in “On The Beach” : The history of the war that now would never be written.” -(JO'H)

Mike is probably wondering - where is my "neer do well grandson, Michael Keegan?"

BEAVER said...

Jeff - Good One!

"And Bill could you spare a "wee" bit of beer for me grandson Michaal"
