Cathay Ray Tube

DSC06517

We arrange to Meet Greg and Di in Millennium Square. “You'll know when your there I say”

DSC06518

and off we go.

DSC06519

Wehn we get there they ring a couple of minutes latter asking where we are? We’ll we are here too. But then it is a big Square.

DSC06520

We go to the pub have some dinner and I get a ticket presented to me.

DSC06256From here it is a short walk to the venue. Its busy, the toilets are busy, the bar is busier. The bar is expensive. The bar is outrageously expensive.

DSC06126

The music starts and we head down the stairs to the floor standing area.

The party begins. If there are any mad women out there who have neails, please keep them to yourselves, if I come out into the audience. Look what some mad girl did to me the other night. If we can be nice to each other I’m more likely to stay on stage.

DSC06130

The sound here is great.

DSC06132

The tunes give the buzz.

DSC06136

They are electric.

DSC06140

I sing along too.

Memorizing and

he dances like me as if he doesn’t give a cow.

IMG_20160524_215141

Then there is some gentle songs

DSC06169

And some golden oldies.

DSC06173

Beautiful

DSC06175

just like my imagaination.

DSC06179

Highness of another place.

DSC06190

Another world

DSC06198

Where the sounds of the dreams take you

DSC06199

far far far away.

DSC06213

I’m really not here.

DSC06202

And then briefly they disappear. There is a roar of noise. Shouting, whistling, and demands of more, more, more.

IMG_20160524_214820

It was a tease

DSC06230

this was the party

DSC06235

this was what it is all about

IMG_20160524_214535

The high before the

DSC06243

bang

DSC06245

when we all return to reality

DSC06249

to see the truth

DSC06254

of what is around us.

DSC06257

A while later we are outside. Well I am. Where are the others?

DSC06259

We meet up and wander the streets. What kind of bar would you like to go to I ask?

DSC06264

Oh right I know the perfect place. And so we are back in Foley’s. The bar girl from last night smiles at me and wishes me well. She must have seen my Google review I did earlier. “So Nack what will it be?” asks Greg.

DSC06262

That will do.

DSC06265

And so the drinks are poured.

DSC06260

And we chat the night away.

DSC06266

We leave and things aren’t quiet right.

DSC06267

Les you know what I need?

DSC06268

I need a kebab from Leeds’ best late night take away joint. It was on the way to the hotel thankgod.

DSC06269

There was a film on, there was conversation about the film that was on with others in there. It was a big TV, a big one, a cathay ray tube TV. And as for the kebab. Well its was the best I’d ever had.

DSC06270

As we enter the hotel, I ask for more milk from the more milk ration desk, A.K.A the reception. This time I was given a descent amount.

DSC06271

And there was bed. Did I make a night time cuppa? I don’t know, but I’ll never forget that Kebab…….
