Big John

Post by Connie Tindale » Wed May 25, 2016 8:03 pm

I know that many will remember Big John from 7 Days 7 Ways and from John and John's. I had a PM from him a couple of days ago saying that he felt severely unwell. I have now been told that he is in intensive care with septicaemia (Sepsis). He is having an operation today that they hope will save his life. I know that he will appreciate all positive thoughts for his recovery. Thank you.

Although not a personal friend, I have met him on several occasions especially in their various ventures. I do not judge people other than as I have found them, so I can only say that I wish him a speedy recovery and a return to good health.

Wishing him well, even though he kept the HP sauce hidden. Quite a character. Last I heard he was in Thailand! Is he still there?

Not knowing those facts for myself I could not comment, but if true I would equally condemn him for that. However I do recall one occasion whilst living abroad that I was warned off a certain expat as being a particular bad egg as he had gone 'native' so to speak. Due to work commitments I was forced to have dealings with the guy, but kept him at arms length, it was only months later that I realised that everything being said about him was speculation and fabrication. Yes he had married a local girl (very taboo at the time) but he was actually one of the nicest people I ever met and became a very good friend. So in the absence of knowing the contrary about this guy other than a few brief chats over my meals, then I have no problem in wishing him a speedy recovery, however if what you are insinuating is true then I hope he burns in hell.

I think I know who you are speaking of Horus and yes some very nasty things were put around about him, but I found him to be a perfect gentleman who would certainly do someone a good turn rather than bad. I hear he is very happy in his new location and wish him all the best.

Just goes to show Horus, you cannot judge a sausage by its skin, nor can you judge a person you don't know by comments by others.

I am not saying you are wrong Dr, what I am saying is that I do not know if it is true or not, therefore I am in no position to make a judgement, savvy?

Twice I turned down managing these clever bunch of bast*rd's, it's a record...
phpBB [video]

So listen to the words it solves all, I mean this week alone, I've had 2 wimmim bemoaning their being ripped off.

Why me ? I told you girl's years ago Marj f*** Proops I ain't, 'you made your bed's.... now p*ss o*f...
And there were a lot of them in those days, trust me I'm not really a Dr.

Volume to the Max...

Anyhow back to the 'toone, it's great it's my boy's it's, A3 all highly intelligent, individualistic characters, all individually mad & highly opinionated in their own right, and all now about your age, so 'toone in and drop out!.....8)
Oh! Big John ?

I think you are mistaking Big John for someone else Who2, Big John is the guy who ran the 7 days 7 ways restaurant and then the Gaddis hotel, he has not been in Egypt for many years, he also has a long time relationship (9 years I think) with someone who for sure is well in his thirties, for sure older than the girl you have your eye on next door. :roll:

Thanks but no thanks 'the girl next door just doesn't turn me on, I have had more than my fair share of sex,
more than I can recall,
But I know, when to turn off my brain before it degenerates into perversion, which is what normally happens
to people whom have no control over their.... lower emotions...
Which could have been blatantly viewed once upon a time any night in Luxor.

Thankfully things here have been 'disinfected somewhat over the years.... 8)

Ps: I last spotted Big John sitting outside of Al's Cafe in Exmouth market about 7 years ago which quite surprised me,
because the time previous he was arguing with 3 young boys in Sinbads..

He also had a car very for a short while Upstairs at the back of Maxim's. If I remember his partner ran or did most of the work above 7 Days in the Royal Oak Pub.

It doesn't matter how a person conducts themselves within the public eye, how they conduct themselves away from that eye can be totally different. The next door neighbour's of the West family were very surprised to find out what Fred and Rose's hobbies were. ''Such a nice quiet couple, he worked very hard.'' I know certain people very well, wouldn't **** on them if they were on fire.
