  1. Gawd, I remember Pop Wiliams at Trent Bridge school. Alway chewing sweet scented mints as I recall? We used the Meadows old boys gym. Remember the boxing matches? I had a 100% record.... boxed four, lost four! Haha!
  2. I walked (or rather hobbled) though the Meadows the other week - and the original doorway to the washhouse is still there with a plaque on it now. The the entrance to the baths is still there too! Took me back still being able to get me bearings from a few remaining bits. Gawd I miss the old Meadows.
  3. I never ask for chocolate because it's bad for you teggies and I have a will of steel!

  9. Well I wear long-johns in winter, am bald, and do have an arthritis imposed limp. Is that okay do you think?
  10. I have now come to terms with them taking away my licence - as I could no longer afford a car anyway, and a good little walk regularly (they tell me) is good fer keeping me new ticker goin'. I often see folk queueing and going around and around at the QMC on me weekly visits fer me NRI tests - and recall how this used to frustrate me so when I had transport - so I do feel sorry for those drivers and passengers. So. if any of you see me hobbling into the QMC (usually on a Tuesday), I carry some nibbles with me fer the nurses, so stop me and get one to eat while yer tryin' to find somewhere to
  11. I've noticed an extraordinary amount of young folk who I see shaking their leg when sitting down?
