  1. We try to make it a rule. Dogs to be babygated out of the kitchen when medication of ANY kind is opened. It's a nuisance, but rather that than a big vet bill or even worse to think that we might have killed one of them. Even over the counter meds like Tylenol can be lethal for dogs. Glad you had no really bad effects, Margie
  2. Hope you finally get a bit of relief, Col. That sounds nasty.

    Remembering Nicky.

    Please accept my sincere sympathy and condolences, Commo. Words are inadequate to express it.

    Interesting, Brew, thanks. I think in time past they may have had a DC generator hall there. In my day it had become garage for repair of EMEB vehicles. Up against Hanley street were offices and stores. Electricians got their work orders for the day and bus tokens and off they went to various parts of Nottingham service guys for cookers and other appliances were all based there and usually drove a vehicle as we were never long in one place. About 1968/69 we all moved out to Bilborough.

    Has the old EMEB building been demolished by now? If so, what replaced it? It was right up against Hanley street The bus fro Stockhil used to srop right there. It may have been a 22. Memory getting a bit shaky.

    How's your day?

    Compo.... Re. a night in the tent. Makes good sense. Not far to go for a pee. I just pull the covers back and snarl. Last time I slept in a tent was in Algonquin park Ontario in 1972. We zipped our sleeping bags together. Quite romantic it was, except we were scared we might get eaten by a bear.

    Not trying to be sarky, or clever etc. Just curious. Why do you do it, Compo?

    Demolished Memories

    Sounds like an experience I had in Canada, Ben. I was trying to skate in an outdoor rink. A little kid came flying by and stopped on a Dime. He looked at me and said, "What's up Mr. Can't you skate?" "No I can't" I said. He looked at me pitifully for a minute, Then he said, "Where you been?" I had to laugh. Still can't skate either.
