  1. I had a great MIL, Ben. She had a great daughter too. Can't remember if I told of our first date. We went to the Ritz, Carlton. I lived just down the street. So after the film I invited my girlfriend in to meet my Cat! My folks were home too. I didn't know until the wife told me later how well this went down with the MIL. She thought it good etiquette for a lad to take his girlfriend to meet his parents. (I didn't! I took her to meet my cat). . I hadn't turned doggy yet. So if any young men read this, take note. Be careful how you treat your future MIL. It can make or break you. When my oldest daughters boyfriend first visited he brought a big bouquet of flowers. When my daughter thanked him he said,. " Oh no! These aren't for you. They are for your mom." Needless to say that went very well with the then Mrs. Loppy. Her sister remarked, "this guy has class."
  2. No connection Ben. Mine was an apprentice hair dresser. I was 16. She was 17. I always liked older women. Lol. Edit. Maybe we should sing that Beach Boys Song. 'I get Around.'
  3. Just think, Ben. You were probably spared from a fate worse than death. She might have turned out like her mam. Look at who you would have had for a MIL. . I was always told to check out momma before going to far.
  4. I never had a locker. I didn't go to high school. I went to the Chandos academy . We didn't have any girls there. First steady girlfriend was an Angela though. I wonder where she is these days ? Nice gal. It was just puppy love though. Edited to add. It was not the same Angela Ben. Mine lived near Castle Boulevard.
  5. First cuckoo

    Two legged kind don't have wings though!
  6. First cuckoo

    I don't think we have any here. Never heard one anyway. Just the two legged kind.
  7. How did you choose your login name?

    I doubt you can do it yourself, Gem. Probably have to ask one of the Mods if he could do it for you.
  8. How's your day?

    I tried to answer you on that Angela Jones song, Ben. That thread will not play nice with my IPad. Probably too many pictures on it or something. Anyway, I remember the song, but I don't remember any more of it than you do. Must have been really memorable! I didn't want to cheat by googling it. Now if you'd tried something like 'I'm 'enery the eighth I am'. I could probably help out.
  9. How's your day?

    How about. ' I'm in the mood for love'. Don't know who wrote it but it sounds like our Ben. Mine's . 'How much is that Doggy in the Window'. Of course I like Hound Dog as well.
  10. How's your day?

    Way ta go Margie! . You should join the choir. I hadn't looked it up either. That would be cheating. Mid the flowers I spend hours. Every day. In a shady nook By a babbling brook. That's where I fell in love with you. Come on where's Carni.
  11. Super inflation in the garden....

    Re. The seeds, Compo. I've noticed the same thing here. (Less seeds, same or higher price). Same with a lot of stuff these days. I try to use heirloom seeds as much as possible and then dry and use the next year. Seems to work ok for me and avoids GMO.
  12. How's your day?

    I looked. Up Donald Peers on Wikipedia last night. Learnt quite a bit. He was a Welshman. Died at the age of 65 back in 1973. As. I remember all the ladies used to swoon over him, like they do our Ben. They'd all scream. DONALD!! Long before the days of screaming for the Beatles. His theme song was 'By a Babblingg Brook.' By a babbling brook. In a shady nook...... Come on then, Carni and Ben.

    I bet the search feature will be well used today
  14. How's your day?

    I knew it because me mam used to sing it when I was a pup. She used to sing all the pop songs of the day and listen to Donald Peers (spelling) on the radio. I'm not muscling in. I'm just a natural for it.. You should hear me sing Hound Dog. Elvis would never have stood a chance.
