    How's your day?

    Cheated on the lovely lasses today,,,,needed a hair cut quite badly,,,,and the above new Barbers were open,,,thought i'd give it a try,,,,first customer of the day as he opened at 10am,,,must say he did great job,,using Razor to finish off (most British Barbers don't put the fine finishing touches to make it look sharp)..........Asked where he was from,, turned out he was a Kurd........very nice chap,,surprised him with my bit of knowledge about 'Kurdistan' ref' war in Syria and Iraq,,,which i knew about from one of my sons...........he did do a Pensioners price £ sorry 'Geezers' think i'll be going to the Kurdish man from now on,,,or perhaps a bit of both,,,......Also noticed which surprised me he had a few waiting after me,,although it being a bank holiday,,,,

    A Wow! One.

    Mine slightly different Ian,,although it did involve a black lady,,well two actually,,,me and big Sid (Marsdens lad c 68) saw these two ladies dancing on the Bali hi'' floor at the Palais,,,one was an absolute stunner ,looked like Dihan Carroll remember her ? and the other was old enough to be her mother,,,so we tossed up before asking them to dance,,,..............i got the mother and ended up down Southey street where she lived........they were both Nurses,,,love to see big Sid again,,,last saw him in Mablethorpe where i think he ran a Pub about 1986,,,, Edit ,,,even remember one song that we danced to that night,,,.........''This guy's in love with you'' Herb Alpert,,still got the LP somewhere i think....................

    How's your day?

    Worked Scunny for VG and the Coop........if youv'e never been you probably have a bleak place in your mind,,,its far from that.......iv'e always liked the place and the people.........full of characters.....i was canvassing for VG 1986,,,when the owner i was talking to was arrested..... He must have been innocent i saw him regular for about a year after that,,, Another time i was sat in a van waiting for a store to close (10pm) so me and a colleague could do a staff search,,,we were on the main st in Scunny and it was a friday night,,,just before the store closed a Lady (shall we say of the night) came knocking on the passenger window where my colleague was sat,,,he repeated to me what she had just said to him ''you looking for business mister''...........loved
