  1. Pretty sure dgbrit won't come back on, unless in a seance.
  2. I'm guessing Working Man's Truss is one thing on the wall.
  3. Welcome John. Did you go to Crane School in Aspley? My late brother was born in 1939 and went to Crane.
  4. I'm with Jill regarding cemeteries. I love them and find it hard to pass one by. I find them so peaceful and love to read the headstones. I have escorted many a group of friends (Americans) all of the British Isles and they know they will tour a cemetery at some point because their leader is going to drag them in. The older the better. They actually enjoy them too. We called our tours A.B.C. Another Bloody Castle, Another Bloody Church and Another Bloody Cemetery!
  5. Lizzie I am in touch with Trevor S, he is well. Tried getting him back on here, not succeeded yet.
  6. My late mother-in-law Flo gave me the 3 gold ladies watches she had. All bought at the same time by her mother in 1935. One for herself, one for her sister and one for her daughter Flo who was 15 at the time. At the time I was given them, may be 10 years ago, they all worked. i checked them a few years back and one wasn't working so sold it for scrap. One I wore a lot as the expanding bracelet fitted well. Driving around New Zealand a couple of years ago, we wandered into an antique store and the owner greeted us and spotted my watch. He asked if it was a Rolex, I said it doesn't say so. He reckoned not all Rolex's have it on the face, so he took a look. No, he was disappointed but not me, it is a nice little watch anyway. The winder is getting hard to pull out now to turn the hands, took it to a jewellers to see if it could be fixed, they wanted over $200 to fix it.Thank you but no thank you! But it still works after 85 years.
  7. Ian. The only halls on the Nottingham side of Cinderhill Island were the Christ Church Hall. And Miner's Welfare, assuming that place had a hall?
  8. I just called one of my cats Buggerlugs for attacking his brother. One of my mum's 'swear words'.
  9. All of it! What has the piss takers got to do with sacking the window cleaner? Sawmill? 80 what?
  10. I know I've been gone from England for a long time, but I didn't understand anything you wrote in the above posting, HSR! LOL.
  11. rschanger. In the search box top of your page (magnifying glass) put Beachcomber in there, scroll down and hit Search. Any mention of saud Beachcomber will come up. Pages of it.
  12. Col, you did a good job, but you could have ironed your teeshirt before you took the picture Going back to me youf, there was a saying when someone had a severe hair cut, don't worry, it will drop when it's washed.
  13. On the outskirts of Williams, Az, is a tiny community called Sherwood Forest Estates. Roads are Little John, Jolly Rogue, Longbow, Friar Tuck etc. I couldn't believe it when I first moved there. Also a strip mall in Flagstaff called Sherwood Forest Shopping Center. I see there are several Nottinghams in the US, but I bet they pronounce them wrong. NottingHAM. Not Nottingum!
  14. Go back 1 page Beekay.
