5th & 6th July 1979

Thursday 5
Work 10.00 - 6.30
Packed when I got home

Fi & Stan phoned

Boring evening

Sam rang at 11.00 ish

Friday 6
Got up at 9.00

Met Bev & Stan on the train into Liverpool

Caught train to Stafford
Met Sam at 5.00pm
Went to Woolpack & Gayton Hotel
Left early cos of possible scraps
cos of funky Sam (mmmm I wonder what that meant... maybe he was trendy looking or something????)

What afternoon yesterday ..........70s met up with Olga's current chaperon Claire and I managed to get Bill Blunt out of hibernation too!
We all hooked up at the Albert Dock , Liverpool

I am apparently the first real life blogger that Claire has met ... and she said I was her favourite real life blogger.. mmmm as I am her first one I asked that she comes back to me after her adventures in the US in September to see if I am still a fav!! lol

It was incredibly busy at the docks as we hadn't realised that the clipper around the world yacht race was on.

And this huge liner was in, according to my mother it has 900 American tourists on board.

So what an environment to let Olga loose in?? A multi nation event!
My she was excited, particularly when she was reunited with Michelle 'Posse' leader

There was no stopping her when she saw the Beatles SuperLambBanana, she was all over it like a rash

In fact no one was safe

This poor chap was having a snooze on the bench and Olga entwined herself around him, he was quite alarmed upon wakening.... I am beginning to get a little worried about her morals since she had 'that' encounter with Gertrude and now Willy!!!!!

Sounds like you had a ball!
Have to keep an eye on Olga though - what is she like!!!

Daddy Papersurfer said...

How's Bill? I haven't seen nor heard from him for ages - I hope he's OK - got a life now I suppose ....... oh well.

I was hoping to tire Olga out with some hard work ....... but unlike most goddesses, she just goes on and on and on ........ tee hee

Olga, the Traveling Bra said...

Persistance is only ONE of my enduring qualities, DP!

Hi 70's!!! Great to see you again! (I like it better up Norff by the way...)

70steen said...

Hi Diane yes we had a lovely few hours together ... the rain kept off for most of the time thank goodness (unlike today)
Olga certainly is a live (under)wire lol

70steen said...

DP~ Bill is fine, he has posted ...
He still has restricted internet but he did say he was sorting that soon.
So Bill will be back :-)

70steen said...

Olga it was great to hook up again .... and show you some Norvern hospitality xoxox

Claire said...

I had a great time :)

You are my favourite, I am sure the yanks can't beat you? Presents ensure your status as my favourite, ha!

Thank goodness we didn't pick today to meet up, Olga would of been blown into the Mersey.

Bill Blunt said...

That Guide Dog should have looked where it was going! For my own part, I was too dazzled by the sheer size of Olga to see the poor mutt. That's my excuse, and I'm sticking to it.

Olga, the Traveling Bra said...

Do I see...Michelle has a piercing????

70steen said...

Yes hasn't today been dreadful.. apparently it has been sunny in Southport all day

Oh yes it was hit and miss with Billy Fury yesterday ... I was sure Olga was going to be blown into the Mersey .... phew what an International incident that would have been???

70steen said...

mmm yes Bill you did look a bit bewildered at times when Olga was released from her travelling bag .. you looked like you needed a Double Diamond.. it works wonders [she a wonderful double D]

70steen said...

ooo Olga you are very observant .... do you like it ??? :-)

Olga, the Traveling Bra said...

It's AWESOME!!! Details! I want details!!!

70steen said...

well she was contemplating what NurseMyra has but flinched a bit at that ... so she decided on a jaunty mid 'cross your heart' pearl number instead.. it is interchangeable with other finery when the need hits her ;-)

Drowsey Monkey said...

Olga looks like she's having fun, lol! I think it's cool you all got to meet :)

sylvie d said...

I thought I had made some strange meetings in the past but all 3 of you meeting up with Olga in Manchester beats all!!! Looks fun!

Blogger is eating my comments.:(
I must say that Olga is a multi tasker, she is excellently playing the role of ‘goggles’. It’s great that you guys could meet in real life.:)

70steen said...

DM ~ it was extremely cool to have all met up. It was so impromptu too.... oh the joys of instant messaging across the internet made it all possible.
Olga certainly did enjoy herself :-)

70steen said...

psst Sylvie we were in Liverpool lol :-)

I must say we know up Norff how to entertain international visitors .... unlike a southern chap I could mention ;-)

Daddy Papersurfer said...

I shall ignore that young 70's.

I just wanted to ask how work was - satisfied with your staff? All on their toes and raring to go?

Anyway, can't stop now, my hands are still bleeding from learning how to use a hammer again ...... it's not like riding a bicycle you know ........

70steen said...

DP ~ was I referring to you ?? A case if the cap fits .. lol

Staff?? Pass me that hammer I want to see their hands bleed..... I am calm .. really I am !! :-)

Olga, the Traveling Bra said...

It's the saw you need to watch out for DP....
