  1. Called in Chandos school while over on my first trip back from Canada in 1974. Everything I remembered now seemed so much smaller. No longer a boys school now infants and juniors. We can never really go back. Our memories don't quite match anymore. Better to just live with our memories IMHO.
  2. Brought back a few good memories. Thanks Ben. You and I were very similar. Left school in 59. Started first job in Jan'60. That sounded very American. No drive in movies in Nottingham in the 60s. Had to make do with the Ritz Carlton, ABC, or Odeon. Very pleasant. Didn't have a car either.
  3. If I remember rightly I think CT said the last time John posted on NS was around October 22. He was never critical of NS so i don't think he would just drop off. Seems to me that is the biggest weakness of Inet forums. There is no sense of closure. If someone just stops posting it is doubtful we will ever know why. PS. I still have his email. He was more prompt than me in replying, but nothing since October.
  4. Thanks CT. Glad he's still active. Still no sign of John. (Ayeupmeducks) Doesn't answer emails either. We always got on well and he was prompt in replying. Nothing I can do.
  5. Haven't seen Ben for a while hope he's ok.
  6. We still haven't heard about the budgie and shed issue.
  7. It may have been Mark Twain who said, "If voting made any difference they wouldn't let us do it."
  8. Excuse my ignorance but where did all the 'travellors' come from? In all of my years growing up in the UK I never really heard of them, and certainly nothing of the damage and lawbreaking they seem to be causing now.
  9. I still have some good memories of the Netherfield area where I grew up. I last visited in 1997. As my late wife and I sat in Mcdonalds having a coffee she remarked that the shopping centre across the street looked like a Canadian area now. That was where I used to fly my kite when I was a kid. There is really no going back. Though the USA has it's faults I am happy enough here now with my photo albums and memories.
  10. One quite near to you, Phil. 'Southwell' Often heard it prounounced Suthall. Other times South_well. Which is it? Always used Southwell myself.
  11. Then, tea in the shed with the budgie, eh Ben? Come on! Ya gotta tell us that tale. I look for it every day.
  12. Happy birthday, Margie. Lord bless.
  13. Happy belated birthday, Ben. Sorry I missed it, not getting younger. Wish you many more mate.
  14. Late wife's name was Janet. Born mid forties, like me. second wife, Mrs Loppy, also Janet. Guess I've always liked the name. Also born in forties. Not a name you hear much today.
  15. I guess the guy lingered, Ben. because he never expected to see Alf Garnett in a police lineup.
