"I thought I was rich! At home I found a Stradavarius and a Van Gough.
Unfortunatley, Stradavarius couldn't paint, and Van Gough couldn't make violins"


I was staying in a hotel in Torquay. I sliped a tip to the night porter to sneak a girl in. You had to do things like that in those days. We were creeping along to the lift when a mate of mine called out. He was drinking in the bar with a small group including TC. Never did get the girl up to the room but still a very entertaining night and TC paid for all the drinks.
