Er... it's not April 1st Drakey. Keep taking the pills oppo! :biggrin:
Oh ye of little faith....ever been to Guzz Thingy?
Yes, it was the hometown of the last member of the Thingy family to join the RN as a normal person*, doing time in the G Spot of the early 1920s. Was a POW in Japan during WW2. I visited Guzz last around 1976. Are you telling me it's changed? o_O


*There was also a Padre Thingy who retired recently! :oops:

No. It's exactly the same. If you squint your eyes and make it look all fuzzy you couldn't tell the difference.

Actually it is a completely different place. We even have traffic lights now. :lol: :lol:

That explains it! I couldn't understand why a large bunch of locals was dancing around on the street corner - they obviously thought the traffic lights were disco lights! :lol:

Just as long as Final is not on a Sunday, otherwise they'll
have to cancel the car-boot sale outside Argylls Wembley
Stadium look-a-like...... and what will all the tattoo'd,
in-bred, pram-pushing, pit-bull walking, roll-up fag chain-
smoking throwbacks do to pass the time eh?

I just cannot image Brazils National team, all queing up
on the Barbican at Cap'n Jaspers, waiting patiently for
"Half a Yard" of sausage-burger (extra relish).

Guided Tours of the Hoe for all the other teams, so that
they can purchase an ice-cream and marvel at the kids
playing truant from school, as they "Tombstone" off the
roof of the recently refurbished Lido Swimming Pond.

Then they can all board a fanny-boat and have a look at
what's left of the Dockyard and any ships/submarines that
may be alongside, followed by a wander round the Barbican,
with the chance to buy a Lottery Ticket from the local Co-op,
whilst simultaneously avoiding the alcoholic smack-head who's
legging it out of the door with all the jars of coffee he can cram
into the pockets of his coat.

All this topped off with a day-trip to Trago Mills, where the
super-star footballers can purchase a bargain or three.


Yep - I think Plymouths bid is in the bag.

Traffic Lights! :p Greeeeeeaaaaaaat!

Looks like I need to pay another visit, just to see the place lit up in pretty colours at night! Do the JRs still wear those nice bellbottomed trousers? :D
