you understand this? 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 and pottery 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.

I absolutely love that Bazzak and yes, I remember virtually all of it. It didn't mention taking back the empties and getting money for it or jam jars for that matter - we used to have a jam factory not far from us and would put all the empty jam jars in an old pram and wheel them up to the factory and get quite a lot of money back on them. I loved those days. Thanks for sharing it. xx

Me too x

Bazzak profile image
BazzakReading Rabbits in reply to

Yes but we were happy playing hopscotch, tin tan tommy, run outs and knock down ginger 😁😁x

in reply to Bazzak

Marbles, conkers , skipping! Each had a season but who knew when to initiate the change.

MadBunny profile image
MadBunny in reply to springcross

Oh yes. And the bottles of pop- you paid a deposit which you got back when you took the empties back.

Bazzak profile image
BazzakReading Rabbits in reply to MadBunny

Yes, we used to hop over the back wall of the Sultan pub ( where Joe Brown lived) knick a few the empties then take them round to the front off licence and get the deposit money for them.😁😄😘

😁😁😁Joe Brown🤩I assume you've seen the film 'What a Crazy World'? 😘

He went to the same school as me, a bit older but a nice bloke. When I fell down the sewer hill (aged about 10 ), outside his pub, he bandaged my hand up 😊

MadBunny profile image
MadBunny in reply to Bazzak

Fantastic. He always comes across as a nice bloke.

springcross profile image
springcross in reply to MadBunny

Yes, I mentioned that above and the jam jars. Can you remember the frozen orange Jubbly drinks shaped a bit like a triangle/pyramid. We used to queue up to get those in really hot weather on our way back from the swimming baths. Great memories.

MadBunny profile image
MadBunny in reply to springcross

Yes. They sold them at our chip shop.Have you seen those books by Robert Opie- the 50s 60s and 70s scrapbooks? Well worth a look if you can.

I can't remember how much they were now, was it a tanner or thrupence - I think it was a tanner. 😋

Bazzak profile image
BazzakReading Rabbits in reply to springcross

I can't either, did we mention jamboree bags , black Jack's and love hearts ?,🙂xx

springcross profile image
springcross in reply to Bazzak

And Fruit Salads, Sherbet Dip (we used to call it Sherbert Dip 😂 - probably our local dialect). I loved the Mojos too. Another couple was hard liquorice and Winter Mixtures or any cough sweets. Goodness, this is stirring my memory. x

Bazzak profile image
BazzakReading Rabbits in reply to springcross

We calked them herbert dips as well, Murray mints and Woolworths broken biscuits ( may have been poorer than you!😁)

springcross profile image
springcross in reply to Bazzak

No you weren't, we used to get the local grocery shop broken biscuits and argue over who was going to have the broken jam sandwich biscuits. This is great fun remembering those times thanks to you Bazzak. x

Thank you I had forgotten a lot and you have now reminded me 😘😘

BTCCET profile image
BTCCET in reply to springcross

Tunes, they're still around now but I'm sure they don't taste the same😁

springcross profile image
springcross in reply to BTCCET

Yes, I loved those things but you know I stopped eating them eventually because I'm sure they gave me sore throats 😂 - I am being serious honest, they really did - probably my punishment for eating them when I didn't need them. 😋

springcross profile image
springcross in reply to Bazzak

I used to love Bovril. When we used to come out of the swimming baths in cold weather, especially when it was dark, we used to get a large mug of Bovril at the reception and a large biscuit, like a Bath Oliver but bigger, before we went out into the cold air - they were so hard that I was always afraid I would crack a couple of teeth on it 😂😂 but the biscuit and the Bovril always went down a treat.

Bazzak profile image
BazzakReading Rabbits in reply to springcross

springcross profile image
springcross in reply to Bazzak

How about now, go on Spill! 😂😂

Bazzak profile image
BazzakReading Rabbits in reply to springcross

When I was 10 I was a fat boy, because my mum lost my brother at 18 months during the war, when I came along it was have a cream horn my love , have a banana, have two etc. I couldn't roller skate that well, couldn't ride a bike, they stuck me in goal because I filled most of it up, always the slowest at running,where as I had this nemasis called Johnny Boyle who could do everything, ride his bike with no hands, run fast, roller skate etc. He was always taking the Micky , like at sports day he said I've never seen a fat boy run so fast. Anyway we had the school swimming gala at Balham street baths, and Johnny Boyle ( right name, he was a Boyle on my back) were in the final, now ok I was not any good at the things above but I could swim ( probably because I was whale like but I could) .So theres me with Boyley next to me on the starting blocks and I know I'm going to win when all of a sudden the crowds in the balcony, all the mums and kids from the area started cheering

and shouting. so I thought this my moment, I turned to Johnny Boyle and said are they cheering because the fat boys going to beat you ? He said no they

are cheering because the fat boys got his willy and balls hanging out his trunks!!! And the fat boy did 😫

springcross profile image
springcross in reply to Bazzak

🤣🤣🤣🤣 That's priceless. Were you wearing those wolly trunks then? 😂😂 How embarrassing, but did you win?

Bazzak profile image
BazzakReading Rabbits in reply to springcross

Yes!, they were the woolly ones, that is why it probably happened !, and no, the fat boy jumped in and got disqualified 🙉🙉 I can laugh about it now though😁😁😘

springcross profile image
springcross in reply to Bazzak

Aww that's a shame, it could have happened to anyone (except a female of course 😁😁). Never mind, a lesson learned and learned well from what you say. xx

That is beautiful darling. It brought back so many happy memories for me. I grew up in a small mining village in North Notts.We only had a small shop, each day we had diffent can come round, greengrocer, baker etc. Everybody knew everyone else and we had some real characters. For once, I'm not tempted to make any daft comments😘🥰

Bazzak profile image
BazzakReading Rabbits in reply to MadBunny

It was the same for me as you sat everybody new everyone and everyone felt safe. I am not joking when I say the vurtually every house had their door open in the day and at night you knew there was a key hanging on the inside of the letterbox. Trust!!!🙂🙂😇😘🥰

Same in our village. The boys used to play football in the street and there was one old bloke who had an immaculate garden. He used to destroy any footballs which were kicked in.😁😘

Yep we had that problem with the footballs !😉

BTCCET profile image

Exactly, you would play run outs but you would pop home to eat while still playing 😁 and I lived in East London, but in my street was the place where all the rag and bone men, milkman and tinkers got the hay for their horses, great for the roses😁😁x

MadBunny profile image
MadBunny in reply to Bazzak

I remember dad grew roses and used to get his 'ossmuck' as it was called from the local farm. He used to walk back with it in a wheel barrow and then it was piled in the back garden. When it dried out we used to stand in top and jump off. Yuk. Wouldn't dare do that these days😁😘

Now that's what I call sophisticated! 😂😂 brilliant. I can go one better, if we ran out of coal my sister and her friend used to go to the coal merchants at the top of the road with me in the pram, the coal would be put in the pram with me put back on the top of the coal and back home again. No delivery charges incurred. 😁

springcross profile image
springcross in reply to Bazzak

I do indeed and I was always amazed at the amount of coal dust that used to come down. Another thing I remember was the gas man coming to empty the meter, he used to sit on the stairs and count all the money and put all the shillings in piles and then give my mum a rebate from it, I loved watching him count the money. Why does the name Scrooge come to mind. 😁😁

I remember the chimney going on fire once because of the build up of soot then it was time to get the chimney swept😂

springcross profile image
springcross in reply to BTCCET

Ours caught fire once when our mum and dad were out. The neighbour next door came in with one of those big blocks of salt broken up and sprinkled it all over the fire and that was it, it put it out. We did have to get the sweep in obviously afterwards but it did the trick.

in reply to springcross

And the mangle and the copper boiler that came out on wash day. With a big stick and a washboard! Monday was always wash day!

Bazzak profile image
BazzakReading Rabbits in reply to

Yes, the mangle and boiler, and the winter's were much colder I can remember the clothes on the washing line being frozen stiff

in reply to Bazzak

We lived on the edge of a harbour and the bathroom faced north. Our flannels were always frozen in the morning.

I do too. And yeah, he should sue. This is so blatantly wrong... the university I went to/work for has student services specifically for kids like your friend. Every university should. It's just common sense 🤔

Hb2003 profile image

mrmonk in reply to

Actually, I just checked and they have! Hopefully, I can get some before Christmas...I've already lost my two front teeth (well, more than two), so maybe Santa can deliver a Christmas miracle 🎅

in reply to mrmonk

Less teeth just means you can stick more stix in your mouth 😹

But please don't! I doubt going into a diabetic coma is on your Christmas wish list 🙀

mrmonk profile image
mrmonk in reply to

Yeah, I was feeling all kinds of janky and lightheaded today (sleeping schedule is still wonky), so I was exercising caution.

in reply to mrmonk

Nooo the janky got you 😿 I figured as much. You know who I blame for that... How are you feeling now?

mrmonk profile image
mrmonk in reply to

Yeah, the janky came up and bit me on the behind. It's my own fault for sleeping erratically and not long enough. Then, there's always the possibility that my medication needs adjusting again. 😩

in reply to mrmonk

And people need to stop sending you 80,000 word messages... 😿

Is there anything you can do about your sleep? Tea? Weighted Blanket?

mrmonk profile image
mrmonk in reply to

If people stopped sending me 80,000 word messages, I would be very, very sad😿

Unfortunately, not much I can do about the sleep. I fell asleep for a few hours last night, missed the time I normally take my last dose of meds for the evening...had to take them super-late, so I just stayed up through the morning...I'm amazed I haven't conked out already.💤

in reply to mrmonk

Ok well I don't want you to be sad.... But I do hope you get more sleep. I'm trying to psychically bestow upon you my crippling fatigue. That'll get you at least two days of uninterrupted sleep 😸

mrmonk profile image
mrmonk in reply to

Has the fatigue been particularly bad today?

in reply to mrmonk

Not today, thankfully 😺 Yesterday was a doozy (hopefully you couldn't tell). But I'm all good now. Just cleaned my bathroom, cleaning Rick and Morty's tank now, then moving on to Loki's cage 😸

mrmonk profile image
mrmonk in reply to

I don't think you told me that it was a doozy, but maybe there was something that I missed? I am glad that today is better. I just wish you felt you could tell me if you were feeling bad.

in reply to mrmonk

Oh I wasn't feeling bad, just a bit sleepy. And I didn't want you to feel bad. The messages helped though ❤️ They made me feel a lot better and got me to perk up quite a bit

No, but we have the same dark rings around the eyes and receding hairline. 🙀

in reply to mrmonk

Please don't insult yourself by saying you look like Beetlejuice 🙀 Plus, the most attractive bf I've ever had had dark circles around his eyes and had to shave his head because of his receding hairline. So don't knock the look! 😹

mrmonk profile image
mrmonk in reply to

See, I'm all new to this getting old business...like, is it common to shave one's head when that happens? Or just let it fall out naturally? 🧓👴

in reply to mrmonk

😹 It's a personal preference. If you like tracking the follicular movement, then keep 'em. If you're not interested in watching them depart from your dome piece, go ahead and shave 'em off 😹

C'mon, you know that's not true. Besides, how can you say that if you've never seen me?

Also, I was birthed by a leprous sewer goblin. So, I know for a FACT you're not of her kind. 😼

in reply to mrmonk

Woman's intuition. And didn't you say that you know better than to second guess me? 😼

😹 I might not be one of her "kind," but I can still look the part!

mrmonk profile image

Ah, refuting me with my own instincts...well played, well played. 😼

Believe me, Lon Chaney couldn't look that part. 😸

Thank you! It's my signature move 😼

And awesome reference! 😹

mrmonk profile image
mrmonk in reply to

I'm a longtime Lon Chaney (and Lon Chaney, Jr.) fan. Movie monsters were kinda my thing as a kid.

in reply to mrmonk

Specifically in black and white? What was your favorite monster?

mrmonk profile image
mrmonk in reply to

My favorites were mostly the black and white Universal monster movies. My favorite is The Wolf Man, followed by The Creature From the Black Lagoon. How about you? You like any creature features?

in reply to mrmonk

Sorry for the delay, I had to deal with a thing... 😹

You and your wolves 😻 I also like The Creature From the Black Lagoon and Nosferatu. Is Attack of the Body Snatchers considered a creature feature?

mrmonk profile image
mrmonk in reply to

I think Nosferatu is much scarier than Dracula. Yeah, I think Invasion of the Body Snatchers would be considered a science fiction creature feature.

in reply to mrmonk

Right? The scene where you see the shadow of his long claw-like fingers reaching through the doorway... *shivers* I hate scary movies, but I love this one 😹

in reply to Bazzak

I'll pm you a link to the page so that you can read through it all... It's a lot 😐

mrmonk profile image
mrmonk in reply to

Yeah, the imagery from that film is so indelible and the make-up effects are sick, even by today's standards. Though I do enjoy monster movies and other scary films (especially psychological thrillers), I'm not a fan of gory films (with a few exceptions). Is there anything particular that you dislike about scary films?

in reply to mrmonk

So this is really silly and whimpy, but I get chest pains and heart palpitations a lot and they in turn lead to uncontrollable tremors in my arms and hands. Anything that makes me jump sets them off (and I am quite jumpy), so I avoid anything that makes me physically react because then I have to spend the next few hours in misery 😿

I guess there isn't anything in the movies that I dislike (plot lines, gore, etc.). I just avoid them to keep from feeling pain in my chest or experiencing the tremors. But this started a few years ago, so I'm ok with movies I'd seen before that like The Shining and The Ring and such because I know what to expect and therefore won't jump

mrmonk profile image
mrmonk in reply to

I understand now. Thank you for explaining, and I don't think it's silly at all; it's a real physical reaction.

in reply to mrmonk

Thank you for saying that. I always feel ridiculous whenever scary movies come up... I have nothing against them, but my body does 😹

mrmonk profile image
mrmonk in reply to

It's okay. I don't like jump scares either. 🙀

We grew mustard for Coleman's - I remember taking a young lady on a tour of the barns and asking her if she knew what it was... she said she did not, and, on my suggestion tried a grain or two... she could not taste it so she then chewed a handful...!

in reply to S11m

A handful? 😳 Did she not have functional taste buds or are grains flavorless?

She chewed one or two grains, and could not taste anything, and then chewed a handful... I meant her no harm, but the sensation is intense flushing of the face and head.

Kali in a bag with Spanish to dip in it? Frozen Jubblies?

Hb2003 profile image
Hb2003 in reply to margaretpaloma

I have never heard of those before 😊

margaretpaloma profile image
margaretpaloma in reply to Hb2003

I lived in Yorkshire as a child, don't know if it was a local thing. The sweet shops had jars of different coloured 'kali'. I guess it was just flavoured coloured sugar. The 'Spanish' came in two types, a small hard one and a larger softer one. They were types of liquorice. You sucked the spanish until it was sticky then dipped it in the kali and sucked the kali off it!!!!! Or you could use a sticky finger!Jubbly must have been the first tetrapack, it was an orange drink. But the shopkeepers put them in the freezer and sold them as large ice lollies, without the stick!

Remember the kali, it coloured your tongue, and loved the jubbly too.

I remember very well a lot of these things too...the life was not so different here in Italy as well.

the house keys always left in the lock,

the bottle of milk closed with a thin foil capsule and the cream that emerged, so good to lick with a small finger

the free games in the courtyards,

the empty times of the children after school

the clothing stores with quality things where you bought ONE garment per season

...and so on.

😢

Brilliant!! I do remember some of it as I was born in 1965!!! Do you remember building bomb fires and going collecting wood off anyone who would give it to us. When we were little it would be a small fire and a few fire works in our back garden. As we got older we used to have a big one at my friend's round the corner as they had some back fields!! These now have houses on them!!

Bazzak profile image
BazzakReading Rabbits in reply to

I was shrewd and had my guy outside the working man club ( my dad was president)All the men would come out half cut and me at least half a crown each!😁 ,

I had boxes of fire works in the back garden for me and my younger sister to light. Then my older sister arrived with her teen friends and tried to take over so me with a lit sparkler tried to warn her off and only succeeded in setting light to all the fireworks at once!!! I ended up hiding in the outside toilet as the explosions happend 🙉🙉

Hi....may I suggest that you read the following book....The Road to Nab End

by William Woodruff

It is most enjoyable to read for me as a South Africa...way way back....

William Woodruff had the sort of childhood satirised in the famous Monty Python Yorkshireman sketch. The son of a weaver, he was born on a pallet of straw at the back of the mill and two days later his mother was back at work. Life was extrememly tough for the family in 1920's Blackburn - a treat was sheep's head or cow-heel soup - and got worse when his father lost his job when the cotton industry started its terminal decline. Woodruff had to find his childhood fun in the little free time he had available between his delivery job and school, but he never writes self-pityingly, leaving the reader to shed the tears on his behalf.

People then would put some of the people in these times to shame I feel. They just got on with it didn't they! Some of them were the salt of the earth!

Aww, how fantastic is that, what a wonderful photo to look back on. Her hair cut is the same as my oldest sister's when she was about four (she's been gone since 2013) and was 81 when she went. What lovely memories these photos give us. xx

Christmas nostalgia on BBC 4 tonight at 7. Fanny Craddock Cooks Christmas. Now there was a gruesome woman! She really scared me when I was a kid. Her food was rather grim too 😊😘

Teacher joke for you Miss Maria

Teacher: If I gave you 2 cats and another 2 cats and another 2, how many will you have?

Johnny: Seven, Sir.

Teacher: No, listen carefully... If I gave you 2 cats, and another 2 cats and another 2, how many will you have?

Johnny: Seven, Sir.

Teacher: Let me put it to you differently. If I gave you 2 apples, and another 2 apples and another 2, how many would you have?

Johnny: Six.

Teacher: Good. Now if I gave you 2 cats, and another 2 cats and another 2, how many would you have?

Johnny: Seven!!! SIR!

A very angry Teacher: Where in the hell do you get seven from?

A very angry Johnny: Because I've already got a bloody cat at home!
