    Butter cut off a slab in the shop and slapped into shape with paddles then wrapped in greaseproof paper.

    While I'm waiting for the butter can I have a Woody and a match?

    4 Track and you could play what you recorded backwards, kids today and their computer games!
    Hours of fun to be had, everyone laughing inanely at garbage. hahaha

    Strange one in our house mind it was my Mam who was the gadget freak.
    All paid for on tick at Liverpool house and Binns. Spent many a happy hour standing in the queue upstairs in Binns to keep her place while she was off shopping.

    brains going now....remember the file 'Kes' ? About the kid with the Hawk ? It were all just like that, getting the belt at school, apprenticeships were taken for granted. The school gates opened at 15 and gates of Swan hunters opened... what do you want to be son - this queue for welders, this one for plumbers, dont know any of mates that were
    refused ! used to play fooball after school till it was dark - maybe 6 hours at a time and did it all again the next day..
    Bloody hell - cant believe Im talking like this - sound like me Da !

    back to when I was a boy, my splinter, a larger more active one then, got me into trouble and brought pain to some and pleasure to others.

    now, TBH, I could not give a dam

    When I was a lad you could play ball footie and ball games in the street without cars getting in the way...The street I was brought up in in Ryhope had about 150 houses, and there must only have been half a dozen people had cars by the late 60's and early seventies...I actually drove down the very same street quite recently and every household seems to have at least one car..Absolutely no chance of the youngens playing 'gates' now...
