You want to asked your Jimmy about the time we went on a fishing trip with Higher Ince fishing club. They all stopped at my house as not to miss the coach. Col Holcroft came with about five of us. First mistake The coach parked right outside of a pub. In the back garden was some lovely big Apple trees. Col Holcroft had is eye on the Apples as soon as we got of the coach. We only did about an hour fishing and Col had vanished. So off we goes we knew were he would be. Sure enough he was up the Apple tree but the landlord had come out with a big Alsatian and cached him. Well Col would not come down the tree. and he stuttered very badly when excited. He was shouting he would not come down till the landlord took is dog indoors. Soon as the landlord got the dog indoors Col was out the tree like a bat out of hell in his hurry to escape he ran straight through the blokes wooden fence flattening it. A hour later when the pub opened we all went in. The landlord spotted Col and accused him of stealing his apples and flattning his fence. Col stuttered out you must be mistaken Iv,e been fishing all day. The landlord gave him a pint for being such a bad liar.
