When we were kids.


War Hero
After lingyi post ref CB ing,I started to think about things from when I was a young lad,you know the things you miss.If this topic has already been done ,please forgive me as I am a mong. Here is my little list.

A) Football stickers you know the ones that came with an album,you would collect loads and fill your book,and also take swappseys in to school to swap with your mates.

B) BMX bikes -loads of kids whizzing up and down your street making ramps,jumping each other .All from your neigbourhood, great times.

C) Being a paper boy- Up well early to deliver your papers then the same after school ,sundays were always the worst with all those supplements.
all for £4 a week.

D) Wimpy- The first high street hamburger total crap actually them MACCY D's came along.I still remember when my dad took me for my first Mcdonalds.

Just a few to start you off,please join in.

All my street cred has vanished because of that slur!!!

It was Ling!

Thats LING!

Ahem, anyway.

I remember waiting for what seemed like frigging hours for a burger and chips in Wimpy :roll:

Had a Raleigh Commando,

Pannini Stickers ?? Is that what they were?

I also remember being dragged swimming witha pair of trunks that had a belt on them! A BELT!! I ask ya! Took me years to get over that it did! :)
Aztec bars.....I used to love them as a kid.

Playing games such as tracking and British bulldog (none of this sitting in front of a tv with a PS3)

The fish and chips at Wimpey..........and also the chicken burger in a bun...just yummy!
Pee in empty milk bottle, return to door at an angle, knock and run away.

Change peoples gates over.

Get your mate to sit in a barrow and collect a penny for the guy.

It was a sad childhood, we didn`t even have telly, a radio working on big **** off accumulators.

And so to bed. :w00t:

You were lucky!All we had when we were kids was lumps of coal washed ashore and picked up by us to play with!!!!
Being an only child (does it show??) I could happily amuse myself for hours with a book and my imagination. I hated team sports, and indeed still do, and anything involving getting dirty.
