Thats sad about Worksop Rog...........used to enjoy the place many Moons ago........they had quite a large Savemore supermarket which i helped set up mid to late 60s.it was on the main street near a river if i remember correctly) ....lovely lass from 'Wombwell' (sp ) worked there ...her being my main memory of the place.....

  8. Cricket will live forever in Kirkby in ashfield...........i pass these statues everyday........the two Englishmen Bill Voce and Harold Larwood both from Nuncargate Kirkby in Ashfield were the main Bowlers in the infamous Body-line series of 1932-33 played in Australia.......it actually caused diplomatic tension between our two great cricketing countries.........The Batsman is the great Aussie opener Don Bradman'' Edit........Voce was actually born in Annesley....

  10. From being Cricket daft...........i now have little or no interest in the game...... Dad too loved the game......and he taught me 'Spin Bowling when i was about 5............and from the same age i could name every player from all the Test playing countries....... But over the last 20 years or so my love of the game has vastly dwindled...........its changed so much..........never a great fan of the one day game....(except when playing it)......the county 3 day stuff was ok......but for me it was the Test matches that completely enthralled me......
  11. Can't believe its been 50 years since i did the ''Hustle'' Memories of my travelling days. '''''''''''.Always.....happy smiling faces..when this music began........ ...
  12. My Babs is a genuine '''Litter Tray'' user........because we had her from just a few weeks old...........she's such a Lady she never lets us see her..... Most nights she has a few friends round on the garden and some of them are not so well trained.......
  13. Rog.......if a Cat wants to do summat...it'll do it.....wherever it wants.......

Did i just say ''She Sat?''......lol
