smile.jpg Graham Whiteside Escapes!
 After nearly 43 years I have finally escaped the evil clutches of BT!

My final day is Friday 29th April. It will no doubt be a strange day when I finally walk out of Dial House for the last time. Most of my working life has been spent in there. If you work in city centre Manchester it pulls you in like a magnet, and it's very difficult to get out again!

But I've finally done it!

I'm looking forward to taking life easy and seeing the sunshine during the day. The last few windows in Dial House were blocked off in the 1990's!

But I digress.

Anyone wising to partake in some light refreshment?

I will be in:-

The Egerton Arms
2 Gore St (off Chapel St)
M3 5FP

Wednesday 18th May, from 12:00.

See you there if you can make it.
