  1. How do you know he's a child? He might be older than you! Don't be fooled by the writing.
  2. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-nottinghamshire-52128883 There's always one!
  3. Never seen one with a list! Can't think of any organised, rational female who would send a male out to do the shopping. I certainly wouldn't. He wouldn't do it properly.
  4. It reminds me very much of the medals we were awarded in dancing competitions in the 1960s: gold, silver and bronze (although not those actual metals!) The date may refer to the year the competition was held. It had occurred to me that N might indicate National and A might indicate Award(s) What I stands for is anyone's guess. Ice skating, perhaps?
  5. Don't agree. Takes me five minutes or less to get what I want in any shop. What irritates the hell out of me are males with trollies, buggering about, blocking my way, dithering and generally holding everyone up. It wouldn't occur to me to do my shopping online. I have two legs which are in good working order and I use them.
  6. A female immune to your charm and charisma, Ben? What's the world coming to? I'm sure the canine population has quadrupled at the very least in my neck of the woods. Never seen so many people out with their hounds. Perhaps these doggies don't normally go out, in which case, the current situation has done them a favour. Tarquin has spent the morning in the garden. I'm decorating and every time I go up the ladder, he follows me. He's so nosy! Looks hilarious but it's too dangerous for both of us, so out he went!
  7. I have a photo of Canon Barber and Ruth Barber's grandson has always been struck by the resemblance to his grandmother in old age. Precisely what the family connection is, we don't know but she always said she was related to the Lamb Close Barbers. Her father, Dr Robert David Barber, died young. Too much of a fondness for the demon drink! Good luck with your research.
  8. Welcome, YvonneP. Are you related to Canon Barber? As mentioned earlier in the thread, I have the papers and family photographic archive of Ruth Barber 1899 to 1995 (later Haslam) daughter of Dr Barber of Ivy Cottage, Church Street, Eastwood and his wife, Alice Georgiana Strelley. Ruth is related to Canon Barber in some way I have never managed to work out.
  9. He was indeed, RR. Four legs good. Two legs bad!
  10. I'm sure Bailey would never dream of doing anything like that. He's a good boy. I'm so glad you adopted him. Bet he is, too!
  11. Sergei loves loo and kitchen rolls, as do many of the other Moggies but you wouldn't find the rolls of much use when their claws had finished with them!
  12. I saw Sergei this morning. He was breaking into a packet of Fox's Glacier Fruits! He'd stolen them from somewhere or someone. He won't attempt to eat them. He just likes opening packets! Bless him!
  13. One of them isn't called McCavity, is he PP? The criminal mastermind. We have a cat named Sergei down at cat rescue. He will nick anything! Very intelligent moggie and always manages to look totally innocent!
  14. Dear old Dalai Chulla! I do miss pulling his leg. The saffron-robed one will no doubt be observing the antics of Bulwellians and others, shaking his head, smiling and thinking how fortunate he is to be somewhere a bit more sensible. Enjoy your Tibetan tonic water, Chulla. Don't forget to spin a few prayer wheels for those of us in this crazy plane of existence!
  15. Made me feel much better. We need more like this lady. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-leicestershire-51947299
