Well, that's all sorted then. Between all members of the forum we had one pair of shoes, one cloth cap, didn't have a bedroom that we could call our own and had to sleep out under the stars. Well for those who were lucky enough to see stars through the smog that is.

Shall we now move on to discussing who has the biggest Dad?

What ARE our kids going to talk about when they are older. They have suffered with only double glazing, insulation, designer clothes, all manner of gizmos, regular meals, full inoculation programme, foreign holidays, 24/7 taxi service. How have they coped?
Can't claim the biggest Dad either, mine was 5'7" but apparently he has shrunk now he is in his eighties and is only claiming 5'5", so he was never big and now he's smaller.

I wonder how many of us started the school day with singing in the main hall and after school played in the woods, rode our bikes or played a game of Kiss Chase or Bulldog with not a computer in sight. Do you remember having to be in before dark and got grounded if you were late or of only having one phone - 'the Phone Box down the road'. Vandalism was scratching the school desk with a compass (remember those) or putting paper in the ink well. We recorded the top 40 off the radio on tape, got 10 sweets in a 10p mix. Only another week before the van comes out of storage thank goodness

I remember the cheese of my childhood,
And the bread that we cut with a knife,
When the children helped with the housework,
And the men went to work not the wife.
The cheese never needed a fridge,
And the bread was so crusty and hot,
The children were seldom unhappy
And the wife was content with her lot.
I remember the milk from the bottle,
With the yummy cream on the top,
Our dinner came hot from the oven,
And not from the fridge; in the shop.
The kids were a lot more contented,
They didn't need money for kicks,
Just a game with their mates in the road,
And sometimes the Saturday flicks.
I remember the shop on the corner,
Where a pen'orth of sweets was sold
Do you think I'm a bit too nostalgic?
Or is it.... I'm just getting old?
I remember the 'loo' was the lav,
And the bogy man came in the night,
It wasn't the least bit funny
Going "out back" with no light.
The interesting items we perused,
From the newspapers cut into squares,
And hung on a peg in the loo,
It took little to keep us amused.
The clothes were boiled in the copper,
With plenty of rich foamy suds
But the ironing seemed never ending
As Mum pressed everyone's 'duds'.
I remember the slap on my backside,
And the taste of soap if I swore
Anorexia and diets weren't heard of
And we hadn't much choice what we wore.
Do you think that bruised our ego?
Or our initiative was destroyed?
We ate what was put on the table
And I think life was better enjoyed.

We used to have jumble sales while our parents were at work, when we got enough money we would go to the swimming baths. When the rag bone man came on our street we would grab anything close to hand to give him as we got a balloon or bow and arrow depending on how good the donation was. I'm sure my mum had to work just to replace all the things we sold or exchanged. She still doesn't know to this day what we used to do. When we take our grandkids away we do all the stuff we did as kids (apart from what I've just mentioned of course) and they just love it,. Rock pooling, fishing, crabbin, indoor games when it's wet, we have a ball.


We used to get goldfish in a polythene bag from Rag and Bone man and we must have bin posh cos my mum used to put TCP on my cuts and scrapes not Iodine.

REMEMBER WHEN:
All the girls had ugly gym slips
It took five minutes for the TV to warm up
Nearly everyone's Mum was home when the kids got home from school
Nobody owned a purebred dog
You'd reach into a muddy gutter for a penny
Your Mother wore nylons that came in two pieces
All male teachers wore ties and female teachers had their hair done every day and wore high heels
You got your windscreen cleaned, oil checked and petrol served, without asking, all for free, every time..
It was considered a great privilege to be taken out to dinner at a real restaurant with your parents
They threatened to keep children back a year if they failed the school year. . . And they did!
When a Ford Zephyr was everyone's dream car...
And people went steady
No one ever asked where the car keys were because they were always in the car, in the ignition, and the doors were never locked
Spinning around, getting dizzy and falling down was cause for giggles?
you wish, just once, you could slip back in time and savour the slower pace, and share it with the children of today?
When being sent to the headmasters office was nothing compared to the fate that awaited you at home
Basically we were in fear for our lives, but it wasn't because of drive-by shootings, drugs, gangs etc. Our parents and grandparents were a much bigger threat! But we survived because their love was greater than the threat.
As well as summers filled with bike rides, cricket, Hula Hoops, skating and visits to the pool, eating lemonade powder or liquorice sticks.
Didn't that feel good, just to go back and say, 'Yes, I remember that'?

How Many Of These Do You Remember?
Coca Cola in bottles.
Blackjacks and bubble gums.
Home milk delivery in glass bottles with tinfoil tops
Hi-Fis & 45 RPM records.
78 RPM records!
Adding Machines.
Scalextric.
Do You Remember a Time When..
Decisions were made by going 'Eeny-meeny-miney-moe'?
'Race issue' meant arguing about who ran the fastest?
Catching tadpoles could happily occupy an entire day?
It wasn't odd to have two or three 'Best Friends'?
The worst thing you could catch from the opposite sex was'chickenpox'?
Having a Weapon in School meant being caught with a slingshot ?
War was a card game?
Cigarette cards in the spokes transformed any bike into a motorcycle?
Taking drugs meant orange - flavoured chewable aspirin?
Water balloons were the ultimate weapon?

If you can remember most or all of these, Then You Have Lived DURING A GOOD TIME!!!!!!!

Do you remember the school milk break, mid morning, and having 1/3 rd of a pint bottle of silver top milk.
The great day that sticks in my memory, was one when you could walk into the sweet shop with just your halfpenny,
without points cut from the ration book. Ian.
