"We were on the edge of a real blackout plus fog this evening," that was so thick it stopped traffic, Griff tells Ida. If they ever plan a date on a night like this he orders Ida to cancel and go to bed instead.
While cinema visits aren't perfect he admits, they are very good for providing a break from being with family. "I enjoy flicks but we shall soon have to see if the Rusholme is still standing."
Their friend Tommy is off to war and probably won't be able to tell them where is posted but Griff reckons Egypt or India.
Anyway, he's off to sleep so he can stay awake for the Hallé.
