  1. Barrow on Soar now thats just woke me up remembering Sunday afternoons. Some people thought we had lots of money has we had a car in 1950sss so Sunday after noon it was pick up half my dads family from the medows and down to B o S oh!! and not forgetting the cricket bat, my dad had trials for Nottmshire but could not take up the offer due to the low wagers. Now after picnic out came the cricket bat. Each time some child came over to watch, dad told them to fetch there dads so we could all play. We soon had a full team. left around 7 00 and called at pup on th way home, happy days!!

  4. Was due to go into QMC for opp on my capple tunnel (wrist) had a call 6 00 night before, now have to have it done at the City hospital. I| could not praise the staff enough. Very organized, gave you a good check over, did a covi test and more. After opp was taken back to my room, then the nurse came over ask if i would like a cup of tea and a sandwhich. Nothing was to much trouble for them.. Boris take note and give the NHS staff a nice big rise. They sre worth every £ they get.

  6. Not long after getting married and 2 small kiddywinks we wanted a car. Some one was selling a Wolseley 14/40 (not sure if I have the number right) but if you have seen the old tv series 999 the police had the same car, allthough the police car did had a bell on its' front bumper. The person wanted £10 00 for this classic (well it would be now) we lent £10 00 off mum n dad. The car had a shiny walnut dash board, large leather seats that went all theway across, a very large stearing wheel, and those orange thing' s that pop out from side of your door. It was pure luxury, we had it for about 6 m
