Subject: RE: BS: Double-dog Dare... a little break
1958? I wasn't born for another 6 years... I remember chopper bikes, space hoppers, jacks (or Gobs as Bert calls 'em), the Bay City Rollers, granfer's grey Morris Minor van with the smiley radiator grill... bouncing on the front seat of a Ford Zephyr put out in the back garden.... fishing for tiddlers in the river.... sherbert dabs.... riding out to the allotments on dad's wheelbarrow or the crossbow of his bike, coming back with pounds of beans or peas, shelling them and having them for lunch an hour later.... making ice lollies with paper sticks.... watching the Monkees on TV, with Ask Aspel and the Double Deckers.....

Ah, nostalgia isn't what it used to be....
