Pink shrimps were lovely, I liked the pink american cream soda (like powder) and you stuck your liqourice stick into it and sucked the pink powder off. cheers I still have caramac bars too.

I have a hoard of old singles, found them in my grandads from when my dad and uncle were kids, they start from the 50's onward and all still play, from bobby vee to the beatles( The wallrus) and names like Trini Lopez (if I had a hammer) Helen Shapiro (little miss lonely) and the berkerly kites oh and an old football team single too. Laughing There must be 60 of them and all play, this is my Bobby Vee single

All through my childhood I listened to Billy fury, the Everly brothers and Neil diamond, I always remember when in the car towing the caravan my pop would sing along to jealousy at the top of his voice, still doe's Laughing

Can't remember the make of the car but it had one long front seat in red vynil.

I remember we used to sit for ages playing Alley's at the top of our close the potholes are still around but are the Alleys we used to buy Question I know I had some really special ones with great twists of colour in the middle and when my dad got paid on a Thursday (if we had behaved) we used to get spends and went to our local shop to add to our collections.
