    Re: Watching Football scores on Teletext

    And me. Every Saturday afternoon, TV would be on teletext or oracle from 3 onwards. Yes games started at 3pm in those days, not like the TV slanted games nowadays.

    Re: Breaking up for the summer holidays

    Yes I was born in 1958 also. July actually. I left that horrible dump before my 16th birthday, so I was 15. Have to say, our experiences were rather similar.

    In addition I spent 30 years in...

    Re: Breaking up for the summer holidays

    I also left school before the GCE's were over as I was too stupid to do them all. As I detailed in another thread, walking out of that damn grammar school was like getting released from jail. I'd...

    Re: Keeping in touch with old school friends

    I can safely say that I haven't and wouldn't and didn't keep in touch with anyone after my awful schooldays. In fact no-one even recognises me, let alone remembers me. I even bought a house from a...

    Re: 25 Years since leaving school

    And you know what ? Nobody even noticed I was gone. Indeed there is a photograph of boys in Didcot House from 1973, which was at one time, hanging around on the 'net. Can't find it now, but anyway,...

    Re: Drama lessons

    Same here. I made myself as small and inconsequential as possible, and if necessary pretended to be ill if I was in any drama production, which were rare at the schools I attended.

    Re: What car did you learn to drive in?

    Re: Mrs Browns Boys

    Appaling drivel, and the film was just as bad. The worst thing about this sorry excuse for a nepotistic sitcom is the tedious repeats the pathetic Beeb keep insisting on showing.:mad:

    Sorry agfagaevar, I have also posted this in the 'Gone but not Forgotten' section, and didn't see this until after I'd posted.

    Yep remember all those. I used Denim for years in my youth.

    Re: Old cigarettes

    A very short and very nasty short cigarette was the No 6. It was the staple for us young underage smokers in the 70's.
