And at the first signs of breaking into a sweat, not disappearing for long periods ‘getting a drink’ or wandering off for half an hour every hour going for a Jimmy.

Sweat!, I used to sub into an old boy who told folk, "Egg's sweat was worth more than gold"

 

Good old boy, wish he'd never retired.

 

This probably should be in Dempsey's thread.

He was a good old boy, he used to say "we are here to do the job, not kill ourselfs", typical ol' Suffolk boy. He gave me my first start when I came around these parts. He knew nothing about drainage and winged it with an old bowser behind a tractor, he ended up with 15 tankers running 24/7.
