AWP as therapy.

Post by Adolf » Tue Apr 09, 2013 6:21 pm

Just been to see one of my closest mates, who I have known for around 30 years, but unfortunately he has suffered a stroke at the age of 45.

We grew up with Pet, being around 16 at the time of broadcast and he knows it as well as me.

His speech is currently such that he is difficult to understand due to the facial collapse the stroke has induced on one side.


3 days after the event, it was gratifying to hear that when I said to him "Back, yer'll have to gan back" he responded with "what, today's the day?" (Home thoughts from abroad)

And also when I said "he's not gannin', he was straight back with "if he gans...." ?(hasta la vista)

Nice to hear his mental faculties are still there.
