15th June 1979

Friday 15
18 months (the amount of time me & Sam had been going out)
Football club dance £1.25 a ticket
Got to Stafford at 4.30
Been with Fi in Liverpool since 12.30
Went to Football do = trouble from lads from Rugley
Sam & me = ok

Oh well the teen birthday weekend ha
s gone well. I went to bed at one and the girls gave up at 4 am..... consequently we are all pretty tired today but they had great fun.

Well it it is almost time for Olga to leave 70s. Managed to catch a few evening rays in the garden with her, watch some old movies and take a few country walks this weekend.

Was having a 70s surf and came across this.... the presenter waffles on but what a great collection of old 70s cars

Classic Leyland advert

and some different 'Cars' from 1978

The Cars!! Awesome. I was a huge fan. Saw them live in 1981. We chartered a bus and sold seats to kids we went to school with. Father and the nuns were pretty upset and tried to convince our parents not to let us go (a bus full of 15 to 18 year olds - the horror), but none of our folks were unduly concerned and we went, rocked and returned without incident much to the chagrin of the school officials.

Thanks for the clip!

Hi Anniegirl... I know how fab were The Cars... I had forgotten about them until I stumbled on that clip.

Wow that was quite an adventure and what a great idea to get a bus load together and go to the gig, how very entrepreneurial of you ... :-)

ooo Olga you are soooo cheeky lol

Love it!!! :-)

70steen said...

Yes DP I am hoping that Olga is really chilled by the time she gets to you so she can cope with what is in store for her there.

Olga don't let him off lightly when he misbehaves ;-)

Rev ~ a rare glimpse of Manchester evening sunshine. I must say that Olga has certainly brought some American sunshine with this past week :-) ... it has got a bit cooler now... I better get her off down South

time in Manchester ;)
