Margie, I was in the Caravan Club for many years, and never saw anything untoward. Just don't read some of the twaddle on here ! LOL

It's been mentioned in the past that everyone on Nottstalgia seems to know - or is related to - everyone else.

 

I think we may be getting to understand why.

You went to a Beer Off, not an Off Licence.

 

On another forum, a southerner was arguing that the term "Beer Off" does not exist. Don't worry though - I have put him straight on it. Typical of a southerner to assume that because a thing does not exist in the south, it doesn't exist at all!

In my early 20s my wife and I went on holiday with another couple in a caravan and yes, we ended up doing a bit of wife-swapping over the week.  It must be the close personal atmosphere iin the van that does it. 

Made a change from this......girlvboy

I've never found many southern chippies that do gravy. Can't have a mix in a tray without thick gravy !

The French can't make proper chips. For one thing, they fry the spuds in olive oil, not beef dripping or lard. They're also so skinny they're more like matchsticks - and gravy? Never heard of down here. A jus or a sauce is NOT the same thing as gravy and never will be.

Might have known the froggies would get it wrong! Can't trust them to do anything right.

So are many of us but we can just put the irritants on ‘ignore’. They still clog the site up with their incessant postings but you don’t have to read them. Ignore them and they might go away!;)

Just been reminded of Tonka  toys...   one of our sons received a big yellow digger when he won a competition in the Dandy or Beano, I think it was.  He was only about 7 or 8.   They were very well made.
