Return to sender

I have reconnected with my old girlfriend Margo after about forty years.  I remember standing with her against the wall of the Elmer nightclub and saying that I was going to “make myself perfect!”

I think I had in mind a hair transplant.  My mum said it was the best thing I could ever do.  My friends waited for years for me to return to the fold.

She was just seventeen and about to start at my old art school when I suddenly decided to go and kiss her in the Hare and Hounds.

It was about three in the morning when we pulled up outside her family home near Sandy lane.  My friend Michael Connolly (now known as the ‘Silverfox’) said:

“If you don’t get out of the car and go in for coffee with her I won’t speak to you again!”

However, he did speak to me again from the lonely Signalbox.
