  • 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.

“Ouch !” .. We shouldn’t laugh, but ….

Posted by Big John on November 12, 2011

I know that I often refer to stories in the press as being … “a load of old bollocks” … Well here is one that most certainly falls into that category !

“It must have been excruciatingly painful.” said the judge.  I bet it was ! .. Testicles and teeth coming together doesn’t bear thinking about; but what I can’t understand is how, during a drunken brawl, did Martin Douglas come to expose his ‘meat and two veg’ to the shark like teeth of a very mad Maria ? It must have been a very peculiar punch-up indeed.

During such a fracas one might expect to receive a black eye, a thick ear or even a kick in the cobblers, but not a set of knashers round the nuts !

Perhaps Martin is a member of some ‘fighting flasher’ martial arts cult, who push their ‘crown jewels’ into their opponent’s face as they pin them to the ground; and if that is the case then Maria was a very brave lady for facing up to this dangerous willy waving warrior, and …

… “biting off more than she could chew” !    🙂

    You are too funny, John. The article was hilarious but your interpretation of it makes it even better.
