  • My Life and Times

    I was born in 1939 BC.
    That’s ‘Before Computers’.

    Luckily I survived the following events in my life, such as

    World War II, The London Blitz, Rationing, and worst of all… Archbishop Temple’s School.




    During the mid 1950s I was enjoying Rock ‘n’ Roll and being a first generation teenager, when suddenly, just like Elvis, I found myself in uniform during ‘The Cold War’…and then




    I became ‘a family’. Which meant that I sort of missed the ‘swinging sixties’, but still managed to look a complete prat in the 70s, just like everyone else.




    During the ‘Thatcher Years’ I lost my hair and a lot of people lost a good deal more. My career fluctuated to say the least as I was demoted, promoted, fired and hired a number of times, but still I managed to stagger on into a welcome retirement and to celebrate 56 years of happy marriage.

Why can’t they do something useful ?

Posted by Big John on October 11, 2007

Can someone please explain to me what Harry and Willy are doing pissing about in the army, when neither of them are ever likely to serve as ‘real’ soldiers ?

Well, bugger me, I’ve just found out that Willy is now off to play with the Royal Air Force’s aeroplanes and helicopters for a few months before the Navy take him on board for another few months of cruising and ‘dragon boat’ racing with Katie. Blimey, he’ll soon have more uniforms than his dad.

Apparently it’s all about his future role leading the ‘Armed Forces’. …

 …”Once more unto BOUJIS dear friends, once more”…

… and speaking of ‘Boujis’, what’s his little brother been doing lately ? … Well apart from more of .. THIS .. of course. 

OK, I suppose that he is entitled to relax, as like all of his bloody family, he ‘works so hard’. In fact this week he undertakes his first solo ‘royal’ engagement in FIVE years.

I thought that the ‘ginger spare’ was going to get his “sorry arse” (his words not mine) out of the army if they didn’t send him to Iraq. Perhaps he will, now that some American artist has ‘bumped him off’.

I quite like the statue, and feel sure that the pose …

…   will seem familiar to it’s subject.
