Compo

Whatever happened to......?

Recommended Posts

And another memory. 1979 ...... we went for a week’s holiday to Yarmouth with a toddler and 2 month old baby.  The Prom was green, completely covered with greenflies, the whole area was green.

You're right Lizzie, I've never seen any greenfly on our roses this year. Too hot for the little beggars !

I miss the ladybirds though.

There was something on the radio about Ladybirds..they  eat catapillars or summat.

We have two cheeky robins...one in each area...they squabble with the wagtails like mad.

On my brother's stag night someone took one of these from a hole in the road and left it at my brother's house. It must have been reported because a day or two later the police came and charged him with theft. When it came to court he told the story of his stag night and was given a reprimand by the beak.

Me too. We had time to gently ingest the contents, and invariably there was a good description accompanying it.

It was a great relief to supermarkets when the de rigueur colour for bathroom porcelain reverted to white in the early '80's and they didn't need to dedicate half of their total shelf space to different colours of toilet rolls.

Which was another thing - so-called 'crafters' used these toilet rolls to make paper flowers to sell at jumble sales.

Why join a site of you are going to ignore some members, if you really have to ignore people don't advertise the fact

I only ignore those I find irritating. There’s a difference between regular interesting postings and clogging up the site with irrelevancies. Too late I’ve already advertised the fact!
