empty chair in the Lit. and Phil.
a place going spare
in the Blaydon Race
and blossom on the ground
knocked off trees by rain.
THE Friday Boys are a disparate group of men spread across Tyneside who meet once a week - 'always on a Friday' - to talk about the arts, raise a glass to recently departed heroes and villains and, at the evening's end, down a whisky or two. The FBs have only one golden rule - talk of the working week is strictly off-limit.
