If your selling any let me know I enjoy reading the old books while she watches crap on the box ha

Yes,..I remember that little booklet Allan..

To be honest, it is a miracle that the wee treatise has survived for 33 years !

Back in the day, the Binding process colloquially known as 'Perfect Bound',..was not as sophisticated as it is today.

The glues were poor, and it needed a much thicker collection of pages to produce a long -lasting product.

With such a slim Jim type of booklet, the pages were almost certain to fall out,...but there ya go, it was, what it was...👍

Halcyon Days though,...I wish I could have those thirty odd years back,...I might have walked a different path...😀

It’s a cracking little read, I really enjoyed it. As for walking a different path, if it’s something you’re passionate about there’s only one path you can follow.
