Jack Charlton July 2020 RIP

Big Jack Charlton left the planet yesterday. 
As a Sheffield Wednesday fan I naturally loved a blunt northern  manager who brought considerable talents to the club for 5 years from 1977.

I also met him at a company do and shook the legend’s hand.

And earlier this month Vera Lynn, a vision I never had the pleasure of holding hands with also became brown bread.

Can’t say that Jack had such an endearing voice.
But what an inspiration.

Jack’s younger brother Bobby is probably the most talented English post war footballer.

To them both I leave this iconic song by dame Vera.

Because we’ll all meet again.

We’ll meet again, don’t know where, don’t know when
But I know we’ll meet again some sunny day
Keep smiling through, just like you always do
Till the blue skies drive the dark clouds far away
So will you please say Hello, to the folks that I know
Tell them I won’t be long
They’ll be happy to know, that as you saw me go I was singing this song

Now 70, I'm getting back into website development and brand protection, as well as showcasing the delightful artistic talents of my beautiful wife Lynne. My projection will encompass a lifetime of database marketing, as well as the Christian democratic socialist ideals of my wife and I.
