    There’s an old guy we’ve known for about thirty years, A real character, very funny & totally un pc, we thought he was in his 80’s when we first met him, we’ve always known him as Jack but we went for some horse feed today & they were discussing a guy called Colin, turns out they were on about the same guy, he was 88 on Monday.
    He speaks with a very broad Yorkshire accent, so broad even Yorkshire folk have trouble understanding him, one of his favourite sayings is “alspeakslowasoasthacnunnerstanmi”( I will speak slower so as you can understand me.) then he will rattle on at 50 to the dozen.
    According to our friends at the horse feed place Jack/Colin is actually from a very well to do family from North Yorkshire & his true accent is very upper class, apparently he inherited from his parents a seven bedroom mansion in 140,000 acres of land.
    Unfortunately as there are no horse shows at the moment we won’t be bumping into him, last time I saw him was two years ago at the Great Yorkshire show, he conned me into buying him some strawberries & an ice cream, they don’t make characters like him anymore.

    If beaker is a bent wizzened craggy faced old gimmer who always wears stained grey pants a mucky brown jacket & mustard shirt with blue floral tie & always has a tiny roll up hanging out of his gob, then possibly.
