  • 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.

Now she’s not “Just Wild About Harry” !

Posted by Big John on May 1, 2014

Oh Dear ! .. What a shame ! .. Poor old Harry ! .. Not only is he no longer the ‘ginger-spare’, now that Kate and Willy have ‘Gorgeous George’, their chubby little cherubic (pass the sick bag) son and heir, but his girlfriend, Cressy Bone-Arse, has given him the old ‘heave-ho !’.

I bet that Cressy’s mum, former 60’s ‘IT Girl’, nutty naughty Lady Mary-Gaye Curzon (four husbands and five kids), is right pissed off with her daughter for ditching ‘Hooray Harry’, as she was looking forward to Cressy’s half-sister, the ‘triple barrelled’ and ex-“main squeeze” of big brother Willy, Isabella Anstruther-Gough-Calthorpe, doing a ‘Pippa‘ at the wedding.

I’m so upset, for like so many silly old sods loyal pensioners, I had already started saving to buy Harry and Cressy a wedding present, and was looking forward to visiting London to sit in the pissing rain for two days outside Buckingham Palace for a glimpse of the over-privileged pair happy couple.

Honestly, I’m so distressed by the news, I think that …

…  I may even need counselling !

    LOL. I continue to gather that royals are not among your favorite people.

    For someone who doesn’t give a hoot you sure know a lot about Harry, Cressy, Lady Gaye and the rest of the flock, John. No wonder you’re depressed. It just came to me … counselling might do you a world of good …you’d probably meet more of the gang that way.

    Thank you Ginnie for ‘outing me’ as a closet royalist. I feel so much better now, so, I am off to buy a group photograph of our wonderful ‘royals’, and this time I won’t hang it in what you Americans insist on calling “the bathroom” ! … 😉 … and if you believe that you will believe anything ! … 🙂
