  1. Worked with an electrician who told his wife that if she went outside and looked she could see the tv pictures going into the aerial. She did it! He may have slept on the couch that night.
  2. Mine caught me and I only saw her home after the dance. A hound should be able to run better than that, but I guess I wanted to get caught. Went to the pictures next night. Ritz Carlton. I was living high. Lousy film but neither of us cared. Felt like the Beagle that caught the Rabbit.
  3. Thanks Jill. Still a bit of life in the owd dog. Jake is now 11, he's caught me up. Much whiter in the face and ears, but he still runs as fast as ever. I can't. I was just wondering if Ben could outrun Maude these days. Whaddya think, Ben?
  4. Aye-up Ben. I enjoy the romantic stuff. It was always happy enough for me. Big song in our day was, 'Then he kissed me.' She really nailed me that night, never forgot it. Lol When we got our first dog he was a nipper. We still used to sing that song, but changed the words, to Then he bit me. Still can't hear it without tearing up so won't try to link it.
  5. Don't do it Ben! You never know what might happen.
  6. Nowt much happening really. Those of us still here are fifteen years older. More grey hair and health problems and a bit grumpier. All except me' of course!
  7. Wow! You made me sign in, Ben. Good post. 1963 Was a great year. Met the first Mrs. L at the YMCA Monday night dance. Married for 33 great years. I'd be married to her yet if she'd lived. Enjoyed Nottingham in the 60s.
  8. Not as well as I would like, Chris. Right foot lacks feeling so sometimes I hit pedal notes I didn't want to touch. Right arm and hand are weak after stroke, so again, wrong notes. Left hand is going a bit that way, probably arthritis. That's why I haven't posted any video for quite a while. I'm not proud of my efforts. Still play for my own enjoyment just whine every time I goof. I don't expect a call from Blackpool or Westminster abbey. Lol. Dogs seem to like a bit of fractured Bach anyway. Gerrin' owd ain't for sissies.
  9. Good to hear you are ok, Carni. Glad the accibent was no worse and I hope you can get satisfactory settlement. I still read NS most days, but have not logged in much lately. I've had my share of health issues recently, but I'm not pushing up Daisys yet. Just peeing on 'em and shaking me ears. Think most of my problems may be Arthritis, but that should be in the ailments thread. I am not barking much these days. Things are so crazy and divisive in these days I am not much interested in arguing either in person or online so I just sit in the doghouse and growl.
  10. Always wondered how Alf Garnett looked as a kid. Now I know.
  11. I agree with you in principle, Phil. The problem then becomes private insurance companies which get between doctor and patient arguing what they will or will not pay for. Then there are co pays, deductables etc. Just what you need when you are ill. I speak from personal experience here in the good ole' USA. I guess the root problem then becomes, greed, plus incompetence.
  12. According to wikkipedia Lonnie Donnegan died Nov 3rd 2002.
  13. Ian... out in the country about 60 miles east of Atlanta. That's close enough to Atlanta for me. Phil....Not bad gas mileage for it's size. A US gallon is around $2.75, but as DJ says it is a fraction smaller than an imperial gallon.
  14. No carb on mine, fuel injected v8. Gets around 35Km per gal. Sorry for the imperial/decimal mix. USA still sells gas by the gallon. Bought the car in Edmonton so speedo is in Kms.
  15. About like my 98 Crown Vic. 160,000 miles and runs like new. I was at Wal Mart one day and an old guy came over and asked if I wanted to sell it. Not a chance. It will probably be the last car I ever own. Certainly been one of the best. Always maintained it myself.
