Must have missed you Ben, Tues night at Locarno it used to cost 1/3 coke tanner 6d  and i think it shut at 9 30. 

Girls you mention the net under skirts, in between mini's and pencil skirts, under skirts were made of paper nylon then net was used as full short skirts were in fashion , it took about3yds of net to make an under skirt. the skirt was made in 6inch layer's when joined on to the next layer it was gathed. So the more gather's the fuller the skirt.



( Locarno )    Old Vic

This man who was on the balcony in the old vic was thowing peanuts at a lady who was below, trying very hard to get one down her cleavage. 

 Who was that man?

The couple married in 1936 and were together for 60+ years.  

No it was not the Lone Ranger 

It was my dad.

Interesting snippet on Breakfast TV this morning about the deaf contestant in Strictly come dancing.

So, if he were a Nottingham person how would he use sign language to ask for a dance? How would he sign "Dance Duck"? Mind you he looks of Italian stock and as we know 'everyone' in Italy talks with their hands. iknow
