I just have to say what an excellent lay out job our Diane has done with my current Muscleanous, and i was completely amazed at how quick she managed to squeeze in the photos i sent over of my favourite bodybuilder John Grimek, sincere thanks Diane, now i just have to figure out how to off load it to print out as i intend to eventually have them bound for reading matter when the wife finally gets me hidden away in some old time bodybuilders home....David Gentle

HI Ray The only reason Shirley C aka Big D would be in a library is to have a crafty kip, i dont think he was a great reader, and that series of "Horrible Histories" was not out then, although i suppose there may have been some books to colour in. By this you will gather i was not one of his fans, its a fact wrestling went down hill after his belly flopping era came in. I used to watch the Royals, real wrestlers with skill. When my grandchildren were born, their real dad, was away most of the time and i was retired(early at 47 to do full time writing)) i always had the kids, took them everywhere etc, so when they saw me, they called me "daddy" so i had to explain i was not their daddy,but grandad, they settled with "big daddy" because i was much larger then their real father and even now after all those decades, they still call me bid Daddy which i love. Finally got to print out the no 9 issue, and thought what a great job Diane does in putting it together, i send in a stack of photos and Diane fits them into the text. In the early days we used to literally paste in photos its a real art putting a magazine together made easier today by technology. David

Hi Ray, being from the next town i was very familiar with Royal brothers and their father Lew Faulkner who had been a wrestler in the tough old days and taught the boys.Sometimes they were the Royal Brothers [mother's name],sometimes the Faulkners, when fighting singly Bert was always Royal and Vic was always Faulkner. They were the real deal much like George Kidd and others of the time.
Gil Waldron lived down the road from Shirley Crabtree and remembers him when he had a great physique. He has lots of stories about him and may post some here.
