    Ernie Hunt who played for Wolves between 1965 and 1967 has passed away aged 75. if my memory serves me right , did he not score a stunning free kick for Coventry. As I remember Willie Carr, stood with the ball between his feet before flicking it upwards for Hunt to volley in.

    Tidy player, one of the best headers of the ball I have seen and a real gentleman apparently. Love the photo, I watched that game balancing on top of the concrete toilet at the back of the old south bank! Those were the days.

    My kind of music alright. I'm working a night shift in West Virginia at the moment [hence the lack of posts!]. it's OK, got books, computer games and the internet to make the time go by. Ironically last night I fancied a bit of Aretha so spent some time listening to her on Youtube and then come this morning see this news. Sad.

    RIP Big Girl, thanks for the ride.

    Raised and started her career in Detroit, MI so a special place in my heart for her. Maybe the greatest singer of her generation. RIP

    I know I have seen him play a couple of teams, just can't remember the details. Every team in the North West seem to have their own "pet" great players back then.

    Preston - Tom Finney
    Blackpool - Stanley Mathews
    Blackburn - Ronnie Clayton, Bryan Douglas
    Bolton - Nat Lofthouse

    I'm sure there were more, legends to a man!

    Today Charles Aznavour took the long walk, 95 years of age. I thought he had died years ago but then realised I was thinking of Maurice Chevalier. Dooh!

    Talking of Chevalier, the magic lyrics come to mind,

    Each time I see a little girl
    Of five or six or seven
    I can't resist a joyous urge
    To smile and say
    Thank heaven for little girls
    For little girls get
    Bigger every day
    Thank heaven for little girls
    They grow up in
    The most delightful way.
    Those little eyes
    So helpless and appealing
    When they were flashing
    Send you crashing
    Through the ceiling
    Thank heaven for little girls
    Thank heaven for them all
    No matter where,
    No matter who
    Without them
    What would little boys do
    Thank heaven
    Thank heaven
    Thank heaven for little girls.

    The Democratic party would have him away for life now.

    Simpler times.


    Also gone Geoffrey Hayes, co host of the kids program Rainbow starring Zippy, Bungle and George, any one remember?
