  1. Rail travel card

    Had one each for a good few years, and worth every penny. We are fortunate in Greater Manchester to be able to use our bus pass for free travel on the Metrolink tram service, and on train journeys within the GM area.
  2. Things that pee you off

    What's pink and wrinkled, and hangs out your pants? Yer mam!
  3. Nottinham Forest v Arsenal 07-01-18

    A bit hard on paving slabs there, Fly.
  4. Harry and Meghan take a mini break

    You should have taken better aim, Waddo
  5. Harry and Meghan take a mini break

    I assume you all turned out to see them?

    esting also, but want to make sure , about contact.     with great respect       truckstop   

  7. Keith Barron

    Although he often popped up on TV, I will always associate him with the Dennis Potter Nigel Barton plays of the 1960s.
  8. Poppy's

    Do you think it is just possible to remember and hope without wearing a poppy?
  9. I wouldn't mind having a go at re-living my life, knowing all of the critical points, and see if where I end up is significantly different.
  10. Reaching Maturity

    When my grandkids moan about being bored I have to tell them that when I was their age I used to have to make my own boredom.
  11. "HS1" "HS2"

    I find that, since I qualified for a senior citizen's railcard, and can travel by bus, tram and train in and around Greater Manchester for nothing with my bus pass, I am using the train for longer journeys in preference to the car. Unless you need to travel at the last minute and can plan ahead and navigate the ticketing system, there are some great bargains to be had.
  12. Reaching Maturity

    Great choice, Col. Tom Rush wrote some great songs. Dusty Springfield does it for me too, with Going Back.
  13. Rugby was the only winter option at HP, apart from hockey. I fancied myself at football, and reckon that my time at HP closed the door on my international career.
  14. Remember the athletics competition? With the house flags ranged up a stick indicating the leader. Wollaton, black and yellow, was always in danger of relegation.
  15. The route I remember was down the cycle track, left along Arnold Road/Oxclose Lane as far as the Oxclose pub, then through the fields to Southglade Road? was this the steep hill? The best I could do was 7th, maybe in 1961.
