Went to Fi's
Tried to hem up a dress

Fi = grumpy
Phoned Sam = in a better mood than yesterday

Thursday 26
Stayed at Fi's last night
Came home at 10.00

Watched 'Tarzan goes to India'

Made chicken merangow = nice (that could be Chicken Marengo!!)

Fi rang

She has done the button holes on my dress

Sam phoned
He is probably coming over tomorrow

Been having a trawl through You Tube

Remember when Snickers where Marathons.... I said last week to my teen 'do you want a Marathon?' It was met with a 'huh!' and that look only a teenager can give...

1972 in America.... it was a Snicker

How would we have got through the 70s without K-Tel

Now doesn't this make you want to rush out and buy one ... well my mum's partner did!!!

Oh my God! Isn't that Pauline's Arfur out of Eastenders driving that Allegro?
I remember my best friend buying one in 1977 - chocolate brown. I thought it was SO cool.....

70steen said...

yes it is Arfur ... he looked old fashioned even when he was young lol :-)
My mums partner bought one that was the colour of chewing gum.... it was an awful colour

'Remember when Snickers where Marathons' - is this an example of 'solid English'. Some people will be turning in their graves and others won't have a clue what I'm talking about - tee hee

70steen said...

ok ok I forgot the ?

Yes my great great grandfather will be twirling in his grave at the abuse I serve on the English language (it took me a while DP to figure it out lol )
[I imagine he was twirling in his grave when a couple of years ago I and my cuz's lifted his grave stone up, which had toppled over in Camberwell Old Cem, London]

My Great x2 grandfather had a few private schools during the 1800s .. he learned his trade in France and became an educator in 'solid' English ......French was at no extra charge :-)

Oh it's good to see that much hasn't changed.

Can you just imagine DP'S frustration with me? You know we Americans completely destroyed the English language!!

It's good to be back...I have missed everyone so much!!

70steen said...

Hi Jackie & WB

Yep nothing much has changed ... DP is still picking on me lol

You have to join his fan club and catch up on the fanzines


Daddy Papersurfer said...

Those Fanzines are FANTASTIC!!!!! [did I just say that? - must have a lie down]
