ask Lady El , what she remembers and that was called the BATTLE of BRITAIN
I remember the AFTERMATH Sir Tally...the whole of the Victorian City of Manchester was flattened during the Blitz.
I hadn't known it before so took the open spaces, the bomb sites, for granted when I started work in the City.
When it was built again, posh hotels, shopping precincts, apartment blocks...why, along came the IRA and flattened it all over again.(1990).

A chance remark can set off the deepest, or sometimes, not so deep, memories and it can be
beneficial to lt them out.

Thought I would give you a bit of a laugh.

So I am peering over a walled garden of a derelict mansion, having been told there are foxes in the undergrowth, when the door slams open and a chap is standing there with a 12 bore shotgun pointed at me, and by his feet two black Labrador dogs, shown their teeth.

Guess what I did? I looked at this bloke, smiled andsaid 'Good Afternoon'...and for good measure 'Good Boy' to the dogs, and just to make sure, threw in 'Hogin Dda' case they were Welsh.

This surprised the man and he lowered the gun...came over, and he told me his tle of woe,
intruders etc., pointed out little warning signs he had planted in the ground to keep people at bay saying 'warning, adders'...strange as no adders on the island, I later learnt he was a squatter the Bailiff of the area had been trying to remove for some time.

Also found the dogs to be very friendly. Laugh occasionaly remembering the look on this man's face when I greeted him.

amusing .......

A British woman will most likely be making full use her fork and knife from now on after dislocating her jaw with a triple-decker cheeseburger. According to "The Mirror," Nicola Peate was trying to sink her teeth into the so-called "Kids in America" burger at Liverpool's Almost Famous restaurant. Peate says she suddenly felt an excruciating pain, and while she tried to laugh it off at first, it eventually became unbearable. She went to the doctor for an X-ray, which revealed the extent of the damage. The doctor manipulated the dislocated jaw back into place and advised Nicola -- who has a syndrome that makes her hyper-flexible joints more prone to dislocation -- to take smaller bites.

Good Morning Sir Tally...

There were some lovely photos released of Kate, Wills and Baby
George taken by Kate's Dad, Michael. One or two professional photographers slated them, but they were very natural.
The family moved back to Anglesey and Kate's Mum joined them
only fitting really. Baby is a month old already...passed quickly.

You know how I feel about guns Denny..

Once.... a long time ago...a prowler broke into my house..
arrived into my bedroom!!!!.

Granted my heart near stopped, but I pretended
to be asleep... I made a few sounds
as tho' I was beginning to wake,
The culprit got frightened & ran downstairs and out the hall door.

I would not have had access to a gun, even IF I had
I'd never use it EVER, under all circumstances,
Whilst letting the dice fall..where it will.

Now if I had hold of a good strong sweeping broom,
with a quality handle I might wield it at him,
But nothing more lol.

El as per your post 29293..

Very good to see the lovely couple
And the new baby thriving,
And the family photo they put out is perfect..

What I CANNOT get over tho' is
the reddish dress Kate wore in the photo..
was, it is reported.. senapped up in the shops afterwards.
By gullible young ladies

While this has nothing to do with Kate, as such..

I am surprised at these young women's lack of
Individuality, in these things..

WTF (if I may be crude)!!!!

Just because Kate Middleton wore a
pretty 'run of the mill' summer dress,
Many women out there feel they
Feel they must
follow in her shadow like sheep ???

Would value your opinion.

Thanks ALL for replies re the ice cream
Thief...
As a few folks said, DW, Franko, El..

Y maše the right decision..
In the circumstances.
