RIP Crafty Cockney

Order yourself a latte, and a pastry (The virtual cinnamon buns are excellent today). And have a nice chat.

RIP Crafty Cockney

Another person gone at a relatively young age. He became very famous at a time when darts became extremely popular on television. I played him once, many years ago, in the Old Circus pub in Edmonton.

I liked watching him play darts on TV. So young he will be sadly missed.

In the 80's I worked as a local press photographer. I'm afraid I added him to my small list of well known people I hoped never to work with again because he was so unnecessarily rude, uncooperative and sexist when posing with a local team for what should have been a straightforward presentation photo. I'm sure he mellowed over the years and I know he was greatly loved and will be missed by many so I will forgive. RIP.

Crikey, not much older than me! Brought up on him. Another lost talent.

I wonder if we can have a break from having to mention dead people.

RIP all the same.

Sorry to disappoint Tezza, but the older you get the more this type of thing happens ! :|

Sad isn't it? I'm trying to avoid older age. I hope I haven't offended anyone!

I stopped once I got to 27 Tezza ... most of my friends have done the same ... works for us ... old enough to be grown up but not old enough to feel it :lol: ..... thing is my DD has reached that stage too, so now we're both '27'... I recommend being 27 for ever ;)
