Geordie is on his deathbed, he knows the end is near. His nurse, his wife, his daughter and two sons are with him. He says to them, "Jimmy ah want ye te tak the hooses on Victoria road, Jack ah want ye te hev the flats in Hebburn, Mary ah want ye te tak ower the offices on the Bede Industrial estate. Bella, the love of me life, please tak all the new hooses doon the quay." The nurse is blown away by all this, and as Geordie slips away, she says to his wife, "Your husband must have been such a hard-working man to have accumulated all this property." Bella replies, "Property?... the bugger only had a paper round!"
