Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

Sorry to read of Jack being attacked, hope all is well with him. Awful for both of you. Make sure your doctor keeps a check on you, it must have been a horrible thing to go through.

Re: CHILDHOOD MEMORIES

Remember when we were really young and participated in the Sack Race and Egg and Spoon Race, then when we were a bit older we progressed to School Sports Days. I once did the longest Long Jump of my class-team (The Greens), can't remember how far I jumped. I hated playing all sports, especially Hock...

Re: CHILDHOOD MEMORIES

I can remember being sat-up in my big black pram when I was very young , probably close to two years old, and looking around. Childhood Clubs - I was a Brownie at age 9/10. I don't think I stuck at it for very long. I found it boring. What I did enjoy in my early teens was horse-riding. The club had...

I used to love Sarsaparilla (ella, alla ?? Haha)
For the last few decades I only have fizzy drinks if I have had an operation, it really helps to get all the air out after being opened up.

I'm confused (I think). I'm watching Wimbledon and it's 2.10pm in London but the OG time says 1.10pm. Is the site not bothering to change it?
It's OK, I can handle it haha, but it's just a bit weird.

An Irishman, an Englishman, a Scotsman, an Australian, a Jew, a Muslim and a Gentile go into a bar (did I miss one??) and they all ask for a drink.
Landlord looks at them and says
"I'm so sorry guys but I can't serve you all without a Tie.".

Re: CHILDHOOD MEMORIES

Haha I should have clicked... Ooo la la.

My ugly baggy dark brown bloomers looked nothing like those and the elastic was very secure. I was thinking along the lines of curses, Pendle Witchcraft (did they wear knickers back then ?), and superstitions.

Our hem lines were meant to be to the knee, but 'hey' what could they do after we took up the hems and had thrown away the extra fabric, haha.

It can be quite amusing (and frustrating) at my place sometimes regarding tradesmen. Located on the front verge of my unit (Strata of 16 units) is the mains water tap, down the side of my unit is the main electricity board and Telstra (Telecom) pit. Sometimes I watch them going backwards and forward...

Re: CHILDHOOD MEMORIES

Our school uniform stipulated knee-high brown socks, but most of us wore white ones.
In winter we wore a kilt, white shirt, tie, jumper, blazer and knee-high socks. For excursions we added a hat. Wish I had a pick of that.

Oh gosh yes. High school, black, used to get very heavy. I also remember that every so often I would sneak to the school incinerator and empty it of all the jam sandwiches I hadn't eaten, haha.
