    Smile Things that dont happen anymore

    I was thinking today of things that dont happen anymore.
    1. Bob a Job:
    2. Knowing all your mates phone numbers off the top of your head
    3. Asking for a quarter of sherbert lemons, from a shop that only sold sweets
    4. Playing the national anthem, in cinemas before a film and last thing at night on the telly
    5. Summer specials of your favourite comics
    6. Listerning to B sides,
    7. Recording the chart on a portable cassette player
    8. Waiting for your favourite single to work its way up the chart
    9. Waiting to see what big film would be on telly at christmas
    10. All shops closing for a week over christmas
    11. Deposits on big bottles of fizzy drink

    I beg to differ with number (3) as I frequently take my kids to a real sweet shop. It's mentioned in another thread on here from waaaaay back!

    I can add another though in place...

    Knowing that the January Sales will actually start in January!
    TURN THOSE FROWNS RIGHT SIDE ROUND!

    oh yeah! I`d forgotten all about these things til I read your post.
    I REALLY REALLY miss those Summer Specials like Seaside Special and Summertime Special and all the other great variety shows that used to be on. I grew up watching them all & it was a great era. I think people were happier.
    I wish they`d bring back all those shows. The comedians were of a very high standard back then.

    I used to record the chart on to cassette too! Bad girl he he! you`d sit and try not get the dj talking on your tape and be mad as anything if he cut the end off a song! Or sometimes I`d just tape the whole chart if I had bought new tapes.

    I remember drinking lots of Tizer, Cream Soda and Irn Bru and always saving the bottles to take back to the shop to get afew pence to spend on sweets.

    I think Stu was talking about summer special comics like the Dandy and the Beano, rather than the television ones with comedians. At least I think he was.

    On the subject of "specials", believe it or not I really miss those slightly cheesy Christmas specials that used to be shown. Most of them now have absolutely nothing to do with Christmas at all, which, to me anyway, defeats the object of showing them.
