  1. Remember too that the customer had a co-op number she used every time she spent. My mother's was 6054. My mother in law's was 71700 but I cannot recall my own. Every so often they could spend their 'divi'. A bit like a points card really I suppose.
  2. I have a Bennet College book on Commercial Art that once belonged to my uncle c1930s. It has been well used by myself, sons and grandchildren in helping to teach drawing. Great fun.

  4. I'll let you off. Lived this end all my life and met my husband in the Paragon 56 yrs ago. Paragon much more cosy than the monkey run in Feb/March. Our first official date was at the Capitol at Lane Top.
  5. Excuse me - I wasn't elderly when I gave them my memories! Go wash your mouth out.

  16. I think life is too short for facebook or twitter so I do neither. I do have mobile but never use it and only my very close family have my number. The day I ring them they know it will be an emergency. I just make an occasional call to my landline to keep it active.
