Coffey Morning

Graeme, Stuart and Alan from Sailors Beware Tent of Hyde ventured into Manchester on Friday May 20th to attend the lecture 'Laurel and Hardy - The Men Behind the Movies', given by Chris Coffey as part of the Mind, Body and Spirit Week at Manchester Metropolitan University. Nobody can argue that a dose of Stan and Babe certainly raises the spirits so this was an apt subject for the lecture. Unlike the coffee refreshments Chris's knowledge was hot! He talked for an hour taking in the whole life and times of the Boys. No matter how much you think you know about the Boys there is always something more you can learn and Chris certainly has lots of facts stored in his encyclopaedic memory bank!! After the rest of the audience had departed we stayed behind to exchange Laurel and Hardy tales and thank Chris for a very enjoyable 'coffey' morning.
