Seem to recall an individual by that name who had something to do with 7 a side leagues at the sports centre, also that his partner was drop dead gorgeous.

A while back, I mentioned the name, "Bacigalupo" to an Italian bud of mine. He said that name was most common in Southern Italy, especially Naples.

I have a feeling he was called Danny, kept men's requisites top shelf.
Remember Jack Thornton half way up Barnes St, always cricket on the radio when you went in.

All changed to houses now, and no I can't remember the name I do remember her making extra large pink meringue's with loads of fresh cream in them. Do you remember the girl who became a top class archer from around there.

No ... doesn't ring a bell. I moved out of Queen St. after my parents divorced and stayed with my grandad on Rishton Rd. I think I was five at the time.

Well you've introduced me to a new expression there Eric. Never heard "kitty corner" before, had to look it up.

PS I see my very erudite and obvious post above has been deleted. No surprises there then. But thanks for the like anyway - I still got that!

You should have gone with "Richard cranium"

Sometimes North American expressions slip into my posts ... Just habit ... "Kitty corner" is quite a normal way of giving directions over here ... a lot simpler than saying "on the other side of the street at a diagonal across the intersection" (pronounced "innersection", of course)

Funny that we don't use it in UK as it's supposed to derive from Middle English...

Catty-corner, kitty-corner - Grammarist

As for Mr RC alias Mr DH - well it was after midnight and I'm a bit high on steroids...
