Saturdays, going to work with Dad in Canterbury and playing with the petrol wash in the workshop, Kingsmead Baths, blimey is that Sandra from primary school in a bikini? Look at them! 6p for a bag of chips from the machine, petrol 34.5p a gallon, Tom at the Total garage, can I do it please? Fishing down the canal, milk bottles in the Osokool by the hedge, Radio 2 1500m long wave, Saturday Rock Show on the FM, Fluff and Tommy Vance, Kendo Nagasaki, Kent Walton, Football League Division One, Scottish results - who scored 8 this week? Chelsea boots, tank tops and turn-ups, Gerdi Muller, Peter Gordeno on a stool, The Golden Shot, Bernie the Bolt - Bobby Charlton did it from Mexico and Mooro got nicked, Anne Aston, Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased), The Persuaders, bread and jam, butter, No! Stork Margarine, Leslie Crowther, Sundays, Football practice with the Cubs, The Navy Lark, Dad falling asleep in his blue sweater after lunch, mum, Chris has fallen in the pond, can he stay for lunch (even though he smells of piss a bit)? Round The Horne and I'm Sorry I'll Read That Again, football down Carter's Field, Mark S* handing out the Kensitas, Semprini Serenade, Cheerful bloody Charlie Chester, Catweazle, electrickery, cricket out on the meadow, climbing trees, running for the sheer fun of it, Top 20 countdown, Sing Something Simple with Cliff Adams and the Adams' Singers with Jack Emblow on the accordion, Doctor in The House, Robin Nedwell, I'll get you, Butler! bathnight, leave the water in, power cuts, Jason King, Radio Caroline under the covers, oi, you love her. Goodnight.

*Would later achieve rather greater notoriety for falling asleep when he should have been performing the rather more onerous task of closing the bow doors on the Herald of Free Enterprise.

It's not my birthday if anyone's wondering. It was simply a stream of consciousness thing resulting from a pub conversation on Friday evening. Life was so much simpler 35 odd years ago. And where did my last comment go?

Oh well, if it's not your birthday I'll withdraw the congratulations. I'd assumed the uncharacteristic dropped catch was the result of a birthday hangover.

It may have been a bad pint. Probably didn't clean the pipes out properly, and all that. Yeah, that's it.

That'd be the year I was born then.

I do like it when for once I read a blog post that doesn't make me feel like an old bastard...
