Lou Cater, a solider signed on for 21 years. got 1 years leave for signing on for life. while on leave got a job as a plasterers labour. paid the £10 brought himself out of the army. learnt the trade. he was a one off and a constant talker. started his own business built up to employing over 100 workforce. purchased his own builders merchant business. became a multi millionaire , a huge home nr Colchester and a even larger one in Florida. Lou died at 62 he was always a very good friend who could keep you entertained with his tales of being a plastering contractor.

Frank Carlson a bricks lab. he wore swimming trunks all year round. he should have been done for indecency. he was the best hoddy this area has ever seen. he drove a new merc, the joke was that was the money he had save from buying clothes.

Tom Beaty a fine tradesman. a heavy drinker. when he arrived home his wife would get out of the car to open the gates so that he could drive in. when he was teaching his wife to drive she told Tom to get out and open the gates. she got out of the car and went to their home. Tom jumped in the driving seat and drove straight through the gates !

Used to know a bloke on the plastering forums who was alright but was the most pessimistic bloke I'd ever met.

Then C19 happened and he fell for all the propaganda hook, line & sinker. After that, he was a hopeless case. No amount of reassurance could convince him that the big bad scary virus wasn't going to sneak up on him during the night.

Shame, really. (y)
 
Many years ago when I was a young happy aspiring plasterer in the 90s I once worked on Roy shaw house in Essex the bare knuckle fighter. He seemed like a decent bloke. we use to get there at about half 6 he be up, top off doing weights and he come in asking if he wanted a spar. Never got a cuppa though haha.

Frank a chippy on the large Frinton on sea homelands site. Frank said that we would not be seeing much of him this week as he had a plan to earn a record amount of money . He had the job of fitting front and back doors to about 50 bungalows. he said that he was going to set himself up in a garage and cut and prep all the doors and later in the week he was going to hang the lot . well he had been in the garage for days when all of a sudden we heard a load of shouting and swearing. he went to fit the first door when he discovered that the door frame where imperial size and the doors where metric.he had fecked up about 100 doors, he went home for a week in a temper!

Bond another chippy on the Frinton site, had been having an affair and his wife and son had found out and he had been chucked out of the family home.
Bondy was down and he had made up his mind to kill himself. he was going to drive his car straight into the sea on Clacton sea front.
we all went down to Clacton that evening to watch the event. Bondy turned up going like the clappers in his car along the sea front. what a disappointment the tide was out!

Did he have a tape of Blondie on the car stereo while he was driving?

Circa is used to define a date not an amount so don't put your ex labourer down as a thick bloke you obnoxious c**t.
