30th May1979

Wednesday 30
Got up at 10.30
Went to the post office and drew out £5.
Went to Uttoxeter = 98p return (why on earth did I write that down???)
It absolutely poured it down all the time
Bought a watch strap & some books
Got back at 4.45
Watched Notts Forest 1 v ? 0 (looked it up - Nottingham Forest beat Malmo F.F.O. in the European Cup final ~ a European soccer championship final for my American readers )
Bed 11.30

Well following the Monday quiz the Reverend has let me know he is an Aries.

Let's see what is revealed...............................

Aries-
He's often the ring leader in any crowd, with a very excitable, lively nature, quick to get into and start arguments, but quick to say when he is in the wrong and make the first move to put things right!
He's impulsive, and falls in and out of love rather too easily until he is a little older. So, if you've got your eyes on him you may need to be extra patient and loving.
Remember that Arians often come back to an early or first love, later on- and if they do, this romance is bound to stick! Just don't expect your friendship with this boy to lead to big things by way of expensive present, glittering evenings out etc. He's simply not impressed by money or the things it can buy, but he will give you a great time, just with that lively personality of his!

As it is Friday I thought I would root out some vintage 1970's British humour and no selection would be complete without Benny Hill.... how did he get away with it??? This clip made me giggle as it is dubbed.




Just loved the Pink Panther films

Strangely when I put in '1970s comedy' as a search this came up hee hee... oh well here is Donny (swoon) with sister Marie and some toe tapping for you on a Friday night:)

98p - gosh! and where the heck is Uttoxeter? Sounds foreign to me .....

70steen said...

It's North but not 'quite as Northern' as where I am ... so yes it is foreign lol

Diane said...

Ooh, ooh, I know this one! As far as I know Uttoxeter is famous for two things, Alton Towers is 'midway between Leek and Uttoxeter' and the JCB factory is at Rocester, near Uttoxeter.

Having never visited either place I'm not sure why I am in possession of this information. Suffice it to say, I have one of those brains that is full of useless trivia but can't remember what I did yesterday.....

...and you are....?

Daddy Papersurfer said...

Diane is getting over excited after her holiday-on-the-run ...... she'll be fine after a few days.

Daddy Papersurfer said...

Did I hear a rumour that Annie Mouse is starting a blog? If so, I want details ...... NOW!

70steen said...

Diane ~ rofl why on earth would you know about the JCB factory that has to be one of the most bizarre trivia recalls I have come across ... thank you for starting my day with a giggle

70steen said...

Annie does have a sight.... it is on my side bar over there <<<<<<<<

If you visit be gentle or I'll get you after school

Daddy Papersurfer said...

My apologies, I've been laying out by the pool all day/night, soaking in the sun.

That description of an Aries is remarkably on target. Eerie...

I'm dating a woman currently who I met one summer around 10 years ago, fell for, and though we never saw each other throughout that entire decade, we met back up and fell effortlessly fell back into the original romance. How's that for a story??

Damn typos...too much sun this afternoon.

katie said...

and as that woman, i will second the eerily dead-on aries description. sums up my rev. to a T. a capital one!

The Rev. said...

70steen said...

Lovely to meet you Katie :-)
