Another young'un

Post by Gadjo »

Chris Hayward has just got back from his place in Samois and tells me there are a couple of kids (aged around 10) ripping up Chez Fernand. One is Richard Maneti's son (Romane's grandson - God I feel old) and the other "Django's great great great grandson".

Checking the Samois line up there looks like a couple of names that could be these guys. Anybody know anymore?

Chris said they were as good as any of the past prodigies he has seen over the years. Bloody frightening I say.

Samois is filling up already and I'm not coming this year (sob) - I have even had to give my ticket for Bireli away I'm that busy. Something is going to have to give :evil:

Precisely - hence my question. It is not beyond possibilty that Chris has got the story half cocked (or Maneti Jnr got going at an early age).

I think you're talking about Pierre Maneti who's Richard little brother and son of Romane, he's about 15 I think

Yo man, are you actually going this year? what about Benjy? He got shagged by the bird he hitched a lift from last time, perhaps he's going to try again?

Ah, well I really hope you do make it man, would be nice to catch up :wink:

As for you Mr H! "Actually going" I think missing 1 out of the last 7 isn't to bad!! as for Ben, it looks like a no no. It's one thing to clap and swing, clap and swing is another ball game :shock: We will be sure to come and root you, jason and donkel von dinkdoodle out. If we don't see you before :wink:
