  13. Hi There I had a commodore 64 i got bought later.And a bike from Allens cycles made up of all different parts and sprayed in their blue colour,but didn,t care cos it was my first racer.Your right about Christmas it seemed to lat forever,and every day great.. WANNA GO BACK IN TIME Andy m
  14. Hi All EEEH nearly christmas already.Yippeeee Just finished a night shift,and while i was working hard(as you do).I was thinking of the presents i got for Christmas as a kid.And thought it would make a good festive topic soooo !! A, What was your best toy you ever got as a kid and why ?? B, What did you ask for - and what did you get instead ?? So to start the ball rolling.. My best toy was a big plastic meccano set that was as big as me.I spent hours making cars.And a special chair for my teddy to sit on.(and no i wasn,t in my twenties then either ) And i always wanted an action man like the other kids had.Like eagle eyes.But ended up gettin the (very) cheaper variety that was about an inch bigger than the originals so he couldn,t fit in the vehicles and his arms and wrists didn,t bend (lifes so cruel) Please share yours Look forward to hearing them Andy M "A Cliffe Kid"
