I am now 31 I still live here and am proud of that. I remember the days of walking around town, drinking in the Magic circle, connies or up baxters. Telling my parents I was staying at a mates and waiting outside unwins for someone to buy the drinks. Up the Charky for chips and pitta, or a good old punch up if the older lot fancied it. Kicking balls all over the grange, boys club during the week and the police turning up coz people wouldn't leave. Being chased out of the house near the hockey club by Hong Kong Dave as he was living in it. So many memories and I hope my kids do all I did and more. I never want my kids to be at home having a bifta in Tarquins garden because their mum who is an artist said it's ok. Who else remembers those days?

Whatever happened to Hong Kong Dave? Does anyone know?

Hong Kong Dave died years ago sadly.
Odd that misty eyed memories involve fighting outside the kebab shop but you'd be horrified if your kids were smoking a joint in a mate's back garden. What a weird upbringing you must have had.

As above ^^ reckless drunken behaviour is fine, but smoking a joint is not? What planet do you live on?

I never smoked a joint in a mates back garden as a kid, and now I'm addicted to weed!

@Pedro. I didn't realise you were addicted. Slippery slope.....

@ Todd - fear not, I'm not addicted. I was just saying it for effect, and thought the double smileys would have been sufficient to imply that without further clarification. But I guess I'm not dealing with the smartest bunch...

@Pedro. Ha. Classic "in denial" addiction.

@ Todd. I'm not sure anyone would classify vaping 1g of weed per week (and that is shared as a couple, only a few evenings a week) as any sort of addiction. Next you'll be calling people who drink a glass of wine a few nights a week as alcoholics. You must lead a very pure (dull) life to wish to label those who enjoy stuff in moderation as addicts!

@ Todd, this forum is more of an addiction than the steaming of a benign plant! Seems it has hooked you as well!

I remember the world lamporter is talking about and an even older one. Political correctness was just getting it's sly foot in the door in those days. Sure there were bruisers who liked a good fight but with the obvious nutter exceptions,they fought among themselves,live and let live. The weed was forbidden and that made it more fun,daft I know,but we didn't get self righteous about it. Virtue signallers were just called phonies and got the piss royally ripped out of them. Bonfire was really exciting before the authorities moved in about the late sixties, people climbing lamp posts, drainpipes, running along rooftops, chucking bangers everywhere. If you didn't like it you knew what you could do- stay in. Now the grey is setting in and comfortably numb will slowly steal away the world.
