    When I lived in Stafford I had a squirrel that would come and take pieces of biscuit from the toe of my shoe. Couldn't quite hand feed him/ her.

    That 1 of the David Hollin houses on the corner of the Stone Road/Co-operative Street has been knocked down.

    Wasn't that some sort of "St George's Annexe" at one time?

    Yeah, known as the Chartley Centre, then became Staffordshire House.
    I never knew what to expect when I arrived there of an evening. Most days someone had put a window or two thru, sometimes the doors would be wide open and I was expected to check the place over, all on my own.
    I was on the phone to the Police on a 999 call one evening, when someone threw a brick and broke the window, woman on the end of the phone said they didn't have anyone free at the time. It was quite a lonely place to work at.

    I took a 'service user' there a few times - it was a fairly spooky place in the daytime.

    I think you went to the Spiritual place behind. Can't remember what that was originally called.

    When I was at sea I never met Davey Jones. It was considered bad form. :buddy:
