It was just as well it was a quiet Monday because “Himself” was no use for the whole day after the night before, up in Johnny’s. He didn’t surface until one o’clock in the afternoon. He heads up to Johnny’s every Sunday night. He wouldn’t be a pub man normally. It’s too noisy on the Friday and Saturday as they have a fella with a keyboard and huge speakers he doesn’t need at all.

Johnny’s is barely the size of our sitting room. On summer nights you’d see most of them outside in the smoking area listening from there because they could only tolerate hearing through the wall.
