I was 12 years old and down Trent Bridge with my Dad, a regular occurrence in those days.  It was probably a Test Match.  Dad was pointing out various celebrities and I ran over to get their autographs in my new Autograph Book! 

That same day I collared Tommy Lawton, Reg Simpson and John Arlott, also Edna Valentine who wrote in my book that she was Capt Midlands Cricket Association v Australia, Trent Bridge 1951.   Unusual in those days, nearly 70 years ago, for women to play cricket, I personally loved the game, still do, and played on the street with the local lads when I was a kid,  but there was no opportunity to go further as a gal :(

On another page I have the Notts team 1962 but don’t recognise any names other than Reg Simpson.

I went to see Vincent Furnier many many years ago..not long left College.

This and Under My Wheels are special...in the sense of me patching my jeans and my late Mum..coming in for a listen.

Julie Covington did a credible version..i did enjoy Rock Follies then.

SS Edmund Fitzgerald sank November 10th, 1975. Twenty nine souls all lost including Cpt.McCauley.Vents and hatches let in water and the storm took her to the bottom..15 nautical miles from a place i have fished...Whitefish Bay.

This song fully captures the sadness.

Smorgasbord job this one:6f81f9e3fffe48a3bfe2da4614200ded.jpg

Church Street meets Vernon Rd. The Regent now vanished petrol station backed onto John Fox Autos in my time...opposite Alan Pond.Need Catfans wagon wonder here...is that Trader from Windfields? Looks like a loaded ERF chugging over the bridge. Oh yeah!...the Trolleybus..L Plates and 'Not on Service'.

TY002628-1000x1000.jpgwhat a great shot!..just capturing a lull in the busy day of Nottm Vic...as usual rail buffs...this angle has nicely caught Howard and Rick Street ...as well as the sidings against the engineering brick wall that flanked this side of Glasshouse St.
