It really does still happen! Whilst enjoying a meal in The Point Inn last night I met a couple of local lads having a pint of Guinness! We got chatting and I asked if they were in for the night. Immediately they both replied ‘we’re not here. You didn’t see us!’ Eh? Apparently these guys were meant to be somewhere else and definitely NOT in the pub. Of course they shall remain nameless (for now!).

I don’t doubt that both wives know them much better than they realise! Hmm, I’m pretty sure of it in fact! On finishing their pint the men got up to leave. Not before coming over to say ‘Bye. We weren’t here. You didn’t see us!’  Both men laughed as did myself. I did happen to pass them as I drove up the road!!
