Full stop

Posted by Dawn Jones on September 7, 2007

Call the executioner,
My head’s on a stump.
But they’ll be no fight,
No intention of flight,
I’ll accept my fate with good humour.

I refuse to be the last party guest
Who having laughed, sang and danced
Doesn’t know that it’s best
To go.
Now.

I’m not one to outstay my welcome.

Bertolt Checked

Posted by Ian Jones on September 2, 2007

Bertolt

I got to know Bertolt – Wim’s chauffeur – quite well. He played professional football in France until he was 21, when a knee injury forced him to quit.

Then he spent a bit of time with a detective agency, where he got his little finger shot off by a gangster called The Roach.

He met Wim during a fight at a petrol station – Bertolt stepped in to prevent some yobs defacing Wim’s Mondeo with a rival sauce.

He says few employers are as generous as Wim – he gets his own maisonette and Wim lets him use the car at weekends and holidays.
