A Wonderful Bloke was Takis …
Takis Lavithis lived in a cottage in Halifax Street in the City. He would walk to work at The Old Guv everyday.
When the news came that we would moving to Netley in about two years, Takis had to put up with Frank Lock’s jibe, “You won’t be walking to Netley, Takis.”
Sometimes Takis would answer, “You never know, Frunk”.
When the first day at Netley arrived, Frank sidled up to Takis and said, “How was your Bus Ride?”
Takis just smiled and said, “I bought a house in Richmond and I walked to work today Frunk!”
It shut Frank up quick smart.
