I know you asked Cashy his opinion...hope you don't mind me putting my two pen'th in!
I am glad you approve - I'm very proud (but then I would be wouldn't I )

Told you it was a good thread . . . I reckon if random blood testing had taken place the Dahlia would have been blue . . . .

I'm going to place a poser on Nostalgia . . . see if you can answer it.

Doesn't seem a year has passed since this thread was last addressed , "where has the time gone, apart from more nose and ear hair " for some reason I allways remember Accrington 'wakes' weeks coinciding with the Glasgow'fair' when all the Glaswegian/Gorbals tongs (gangs)were in the same resorts as us , (Isle of Man/Blackpool) , beautiful lasses but nasty malefolk , allways looking for a battle .

Re: The Deck

That brings back happy memories, "I'll meet thi on't Deck at 8 o'clock on Satdy neet" can't remember how man times I said that little line in my teens. Seem to remember also that in the late 70s the "mods" used to hang round the Copper Kettle Cafe on Peel Street, with all the scooters parked outside, grea big long arrials on them

Re: The Deck

Yea Steely, I remember Glasgow Fair too, Blackpool etc, they used to take over, worked a season at Butlin's, in Wales. and they used to wreck the place, if we saw a mob coming towards us we'd walk the other way or run.

Re: The Deck

I used to meet on the Deck on Saturday nights, one of the guys we called John the hippie. I went to Rhyddings with him. We used to hang out at the Blue Dahlia when everyone was "popping pills". And I used to ride on some of the "Mods" scooters after the disco had finished. Those where the days. I think Accy has gone to pot. I will be over in the UK in Sept, so I will see what changes have been made.
