Hello from Yorkshire
« on: May 14, 2018, 09:01:54 PM »

Hello to alll,
Thanks to Theo, I've just joined after periodic browsing and enjoying the tips and banter. 
I have a few old Hohners, a couple of Italian boxes (and a Streb).  I play a  simple "one row" style for 2 or 3 dance local teams and I ocassionally busk along at barn dances.

Welcome, Stotty. Are you by any chance the bloke I was speaking to over the weekend?
Yes or no, you're still welcome.

Hi Tufty,
Quite possibly - from time to time I play for Beverley, Flamborough and Goathland, and a rapper team.

I believe noisy drooling is known as slobbering.

Stotty might live in Yooorkshire but with a canny name like that he probably comes from the North East. You Tykes are not getting it all your own way. This is Nigel coming to you from Gods own County - County Durham.
