My Pen and George Best #2


I lent George my cherished Mont Blanc ballpoint with which he kindly signed the printed luncheon menu with the message:
"To Peter and Janet at the
White Horse with love from
George Best”
As broad speaking Mancunian United supporters and publicans at our local, they were surprised and delighted to receive my gift even having it framed and hung in pride of place by the dart board on the chimney breast in the Gay Bar.
Anyway the following Monday morning clambering into my business suit I patted my jacket pocket by habit - NO PEN! Shock horror! George had kept it!

    What a tea-leaf! And him on a footballer’s salary too! I remember the Gay Bar in the elevated section. Member’s of the 14-strong rugby club weren’t permitted to venture there in my day.
