Webbert at 'wom' in 15, Lyme Grove. "

Lyme Grove, Buckley


Once when Webbert was in America visiting relatives, he was travelling on the greyhound bus. They stopped to call in at the local post office for some stamps. When they were in the queue, there was a police raid. Webbert was placed spread-eagled against the wall and frisked. When they let him go, he remarked:

"I only came in here for a stamp. I dread to think what would have happened if I'd wanted a postal order!!"



Another tale - He went to the doctor's and when asked how he felt said: "I'm wuss."

"Pardon?" asked the doctor. "I'm wuss", he repeated, "Don't thee know the Queen's English?"



And another - He moved into a house in Saint John's Court, which, of course, is next to the cemetery. When asked by someone how he was getting on he said, "Well, the neighbours are quiet!"



And another - Not long before he died he was attending a funeral. He was heard to remark, "It's hardly worth going wom!"
