      I remember being on my lunch break from work round about the same age, wandering through town probably in the old donkey jacket and a dirty pair of jeans.
      Suddenly this really good looky young lady , with an American accent came up to me and started talking to me, for a while I was on my back foot, until the conversation got round to the fact she was a mormon , and obviously recruiting.:biggrin:
      Never was a fan of Donny Osmond.:biggrin:

        I must admit, the first pretty lady almost got me @pete - they built up friendships over time and then tried to hook you in, but as I say I never took too much notice as I was always into something oily. The dead giveaway was the second one - - this girl was a stunner to be fair; real, real model material, and that was the giveaway. You see, even when I was younger, I still had a face for radio, so there is no way a girl like that would wipe me off her shoe, let alone be interested in me.

                Best ask, the late John Laurie. (of Dads Army fame)

                It would be a dark and story night. Away in the glens, the wind was bitter and torterous. Many a man was wishing, he'd cheated and protected the crown jewels.

                Little, wee Russ.....destined according to the great man himself.......olde Rabby Burns. To one day be great. Great what? nay man dare ask. With chapped hands and legs amd teeth chattering like morse code. This wee young lad, made it to the road.



                Oh look. A number 11 bus. That will take me to Treadneedle St. Change and get a bus to 55 The Broadway.


                Easy when you know how.

                  When I previously checked our local infection rate (ward level) it was very low and falling.

                  Checking again, I was shocked to see it had doubled in a week! OMG we'll be higher than Liverpool in 4 weeks :yikes:

                  Reality check - the figures are per 100,000 and for a small local electoral ward containing a fraction of 100,000 people in it, so where the numbers previously meant only about 1 household, now there might be 2 infected households. That doesn't sound so scary.

                    We've almost had one person in the village (not hints of Little Britain :heehee:) with the virus! Turned out negative. :noidea: We still all keep our distance and wear masks in the village shops.

                        Well, here is a fun fact.... John Laurie was born in my hometown, and used to travel on the same 'workies' bus that my grandfather did before he went off and found fame. Apparently, he was a really lovely man (aren't all Scotsmen?..... stop giggling at the back please....)

                              The pretty girls i often met in clubs would come up to me and say 'it's my birthday today, are you gonna buy me a drink'
                              I remember one in particular that approached me with the same scam two weeks running.
                              Needless to say i still bought her one... (Hard to say no to an attractive bint)
