  • 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.

“It’s beginning to look a lot like …” !

Posted by Big John on July 24, 2017

.. It’s the middle of a blazing summer. June and July have seen some of the highest temperatures on record. I’m sitting here in a design.. sweaty T shirt, displaying my ‘shapely calves’ and ‘finely turned ankles’ below my fashionable old fart’s knee length shorts. My ‘Panama’ hat has seen more use than usual this year and my woollen socks have been discarded ‘for the duration’.

Today I enjoyed a light lunch of pasta salad, accompanied by a cold beer. I have just relaxed in my armchair and opened my newspaper, only to be confronted by an advertisement reading …

  “Book Now for a Magical Christmas” !
