    School milk and funny sized wheels on the trolleys were the best.

    If you look at the joy on those kids faces just out doing the simplest of things, perhaps we were better of before the innovation of health and safety and political correctness ! Now poor old Bill and Ben would get hauled up for calling some plant a weed !

    Must admit, we had fukkall, holes in our shoes arse hanging out of our breeks, had to trawl the dumps for bits of old bikes to make our own, old prams to make 'geegs' (buggies/carts). Certainly wouldn't swap todays lot with all their fukkin tech.

    Re: Kids in the 60's

    There is more.....Well Bill I was offered the job because I held the record for canings. Headmaster told me he was sick of whacking me and if I straightened up I could be Milk Monitor. So i thought mmmmm...... Better than getting a striped arse non stop. So I went for it and things went ok for a while till i started selling it. penny a bottle. I flogged the spares and a twat of a chick told on me. So that was the end of that. Then I nicked a box of McVities Chocolate Biscuits and was trying to flog them on the number 10 bus and got marched back to the school by an off duty copper. So that ended me Al Capone racketeering days. Headmaster sez I let him down. I would have give him a piece of the action.....

    Here's what used to happen to old prams when i was a kid:

    This is a posh fukker, it's got a brake. I preferred them with the smaller wheels at the front.

    Catapults, bow and arrows, throwing arrows, spears, pea shooters, kites, box kites, piggy whackers, buggies, slide down slag heaps on corrugated sheets (many fingers lost, swimmin in pit lodges, all day jumping rivers and streams, digging tunnels,jumping from railway bridges on to coal trains to 'offload' coal, tightrope walking across 600' deep pit shafts and so on, much we could not manufacture.

    What these kids got today ? A phone. A wafer thin idiots lantern. The bike I bought my kid's step daughter for Chrissy.....is yet to be used. Its in the Garage. She has never sat on it. She spends her life gazing at intellectual default most of her free time. Sad.

    The Dennis Bisskit days were great days.
    I told myself that I should stop drinking, but I'm not about to listen to a drunk who talks to himself.

    Re: Kids in the 60's

    1940s, getting a good belting of me father, for pinching some carbide which he used for his pit lamp. Used to put it into little parcels and throw them into the air for the seagulls to grab. The gas used to swell up in their gut, and they used to explode. Not a nice thing to do, so you learned a lesson the hard way.

    Wish I could get my hands on some carbide, Bob. The bastards here go all fukkin night long screaming and squawking. I wouldn't mind if when I open my curtains to a nice chocolate box panorama of a small fishing port to see those horny handed sons of the sea unloading their catch for the day, but no, I get to see an unused accommodation block awaiting demolition.

    Re: Kids in the 60's

    Sympathies with you there Don, the trouble is here you get twats feeding them. Which causes them to get aggressive when other people don't. They dive on kids and adults alike in order to grab any food they might have in their hands. And they shit all over the place. Trouble is their protected, so no chance of culling them to reduce numbers.

    I have posted pics of my car before covered in their shit, it's burned through the lacquer. Phoned the council had had some young girl almost in tears when I asked if we could kill them, she said "what about their chicks".

    Re: Kids in the 60's

    Anyway, found this on fudbook, reminder of the days when life was so much simpler and shite hawks were only at the seaside, so in their natural habitat...not at the end of my road.



    Back in the days of tanners and bobs,
    When Mothers had patience and Fathers had jobs.
    When football team families wore hand me down shoes,
    And T.V gave only two channels to choose.

    Back in the days of three penny bits,
    when schools employed nurses to search for your nits.
    When snowballs were harmless; ice slides were permitted
    and all of your jumpers were warm and hand knitted.

    Back in the days of hot ginger beers,
    when children remained so for more than six years.
    When children respected what older folks said,
    and pot was a thing you kept under your bed.

    Back in the days of Listen with Mother,
    when neighbours were friendly and talked to each other.
    When cars were so rare you could play in the street.
    When Doctors made house calls and Police walked the beat.

    Back in the days of Milligan's Goons,
    when butter was butter and songs all had tunes.
    It was dumplings for dinner and trifle for tea,
    and your annual break was a day by the sea.

    Back in the days of Dixon's Dock Green,
    Crackerjack pens and Lyons ice cream.
    When children could freely wear National Health glasses,
    and teachers all stood at the FRONT of their classes.

    Back in the days of rocking and reeling,
    when mobiles were things that you hung from the ceiling.
    When woodwork andpottery got taught in schools,
    and everyone dreamed of a win on the pools.

    Back in the days when I was a lad,
    I can't help but smile for the fun that I had.
    Hopscotch and roller skates; snowballs to lob.
    Back in the days of tanners and bobs.

    Re: Kids in the 60's

    What age would those houses be ? 1880's 1890'S ?

    Look at the craftsmanship put into those Semicircular arches....Those special shaped custom made brick, on what was just run of the mill working class tenement houses. They probably built them like it was nothing. Not even a talking point. Popped them up because they were ......Bricklayers.... and that was all part of their game.
    If they came back today they would cry. Thats long gone. I cant find anybody that can turn an arch now. Or a twisted pillar. Or even a bit of corbelling done properly. They can't do it. Not the blokes available to me. Most of the real young ones cant even lay brick straight. Sad state of affairs. No pride.

    Did anyone else have a little front room in the house, that you weren't allowed in? It was kept spotless and only used if someone important visited and the best china came out.
    I told myself that I should stop drinking, but I'm not about to listen to a drunk who talks to himself.
