  1. Both the wife and myself been for ''Eye test'' this morning at 'Vision Express''  Tesco Top Valley.......both need new 'Specs''

                Iv;e gone for the 'Michael Caine'' look''',,,it just covers the large bags under each eye...''Not a lot of people know that''

  2. Ditto to that Jill............hope Loppy's ok...

     

    BK........Ref..Syd and Babs...loving life such a pleasure having them......since letting em out can't keep them in....even want to go out all night.....Syd is the real cheeky one...goes on every neighbours garden......one lady neighbour asked me to have a word with him.....lol....

     

     

  3. Had a lovely day in the Garden........which is looking good...

    Large lawn trimmed.......i didnt do it..only got a flymo so local man with petrol mower sorts it when needed..........

    I can't dig anymore...so all my plants are in Pots...of which i now have nearly a hundred.......love moving em about...for different effect...looks like another garden when ive finished..

               Syd and Babs always inspect when ive finished...and usually give approval by giving each Pot the once over...before having a good roll on the Lawn..(they are Cats btw)

     

    Not quite the country garden pictured here......but it'll do for me....

  4. Very nice day today.......3 sons and one Grandaughter here for dinner..which was taken on the Garden.......Two sons just back from the South coast where they had been working...and regaled me with their exploits....made me jealous....

                 Grandaughter (21) off to Greece later in the week for an holiday before joining the RAF.........The other son told me his future plans..which involves buying a boat and sailing off to destinations unknown........all have so many plans and all are single...so the world is their Oyster.......lovely to have em all together........well nearly all of em........lol

  5. .

    Great memories of this song.........Bodega.. sunday nights about 63/64.....Not really a dance venue back then...however Sunday nights had only a few customers.......and with the right Barman we pushed a few tables back and with right music on the Juke Box plus the right Girls from Carlton...(Trina and Maggie) me and my mate Keith (Columbo) we were in heaven........just loved the old 'Bodega''

  6. Ey up James.......i worked in Security for the Coop from mid 90s so probably after your time.......We had an office in Broad Marsh and a main one at the back of Parliament street near the steps of the staff entrance....

                      Last saw Ted Perfect at a coop house reunion about 2010......you may remember the security supervisor June Radford...a real character.......did many Store Detective duties with her....she was 4ft 10in and fearless...now sadly Passed....

  7. BK I Love a  Baileys and over the years have had it several ways...always nice with Coffee.....but only in the evening....

               Have it with ''Ice'' in Spain...and usually say ''LO MISMA'' after..........

  8. Strangely enough i dont miss Alcohol......loved a drink most nights....in my time ive had periods of drinking Beer..Whisky..Rum..Gin..Vodka...in fact most concoctions...keep saying i'll try a 'Baileys' one night...but not really fussed.........

              Now if i ever get back to Spain it could be a different story..............

  9. Ive been almost 3 years 'Fagless'' SG.........and still get the craving everyday 3 or 4 times..........sometimes pretend to smoke with one of the Wifes...not lit..flick it up into me gob give it a good suck and pretend to blow the smoke out.(which makes her laugh cos since my OP i cant blow)...while at the same time asking her ''If she comes here often and would you like a dance Duck''

                Makes me feel better and lessens the craving....also for some reason watching 'Talking Pictures where they all smoke helps as well.........lol

  10. Mine also.......very embarrassing when i used to get me Date to put the left indicator back after every left turn .. while i was driving.........

         Even worse when i asked her to give me a ''Crank start'' on the front at Skegness........:Shock:
