  2. Thought ey-up''....bit quiet again on 'Nottstalgia...........so must be time for 'Polly Brown'' and ''Pickettywitch''.............fell in love with 'Polly'' after seeing her live in my Birmingham days...70ish..........love to do it all again...''just one more time'' think i took 'Margaret 'from 'Alum Rock' to see them in Tamworth...but then again could have been 'Gwyneth'' from Chelmsley wood''.........don't matter both nearly as lovely as ''Polly''...........happy days....

  3. Sad to say football today is so boring to watch..........square passes...Back passes.......keeping possession.....

               Gone are the days of the long ball and taking on defenders with a mazy dribble...and a few crunching tackles or even a shoulder charge on the keeper.........

                      Glad the Euro's are over.....sick of seeing so called fans dancing up and down shouting ''C'MON ENGLAND'' while kissing their mates...with a Pint in hand.......

                To say nowt of the so called experts on TV saying they are ''proud of them ''and are all hero's...Demi-Gods'' in fact.....

              Finally......Best team won''......but they were also boring.........

  5. Driving up 'Piccadilly'' Bulwell this morning,,,saw a cat standing in the middle of the road.....with cars parked either side of the road i couldn't drive past.........when i obviously stopped..the Cat decided to lay down still in the road.....so got out to move it and it shot under my car.......i was on 'Hands and Knees'' looking for it........cars now Queuing up in front and behind...

                     Luckily they all found it funny......eventually the cat came out from under me car...gave me a dirty luck and toddled off.......:Shock:

  6. Our paths must of crossed Carnie.........perhaps i was with Brenda or even Shirley up the Castle........maybe you saw me laughing by the ''wishing well'' when my mate thru 'Half a Crown'' in and thought it was a 'Penny'' 

                    Stood in same place as Albert and Rachel up the Castle (in sat night/Sunday morning.)..when i was introducing 'Donna' to Nottingham......even fell down them Pub Stairs........and got beat up by two brothers of Christine's.......ruined me suit they did........used to love going up the Castle with a date on Thursday half day closing.........The much 'Maligned' ''Nottingham Castle'' holds so many memories for us true 'Nottinghamians'' all happy ones...........
