    My name is Pete and I’m an alcoholic-sorry wrong group
    “Mike the sign” suggested I get in touch.I’ve just moved to Whitby from Oxfordshire, where I was fortunate to be a close neighbour of Mikes, and I’m a bit lonely up here.I am what the Americans call a “Brush man”and relatively new to the game and am also an old dog and a luddite.am looking forward chatting with you all,and probably posting the odd rant as well.Cheers – Pete

    Hi Pete!…glad to see you made it here.

    How’s that latest job going?…did you make contact with others locally?…do you want me to send Robert a photo of you? (I have one of you next to the Doctors Surgery Sign – I can loose the sign and send just your image)…if you’d rather arrange your own – just say, no worries…

    so many questions – so little sheep…oh, hold on – isn’t that Timmy’s saying…

    more soon

    Hi Pete – Any friend of Mike’s is a friend of mine 😀

    Gray – It must be tough living in that Island paradise of yours – burgular free – and no noisy neighbours for 50 miles. As long as you can get draught Guiness your life must be complete. I’ll swap you my life for yours!

    Hi Pete, bit belated but welcome to the boards anyway. Youll find there is a good mix of people on here but there is a sortage of “brush men” so dont be surprised if you get you brains picked.
