  • this thread is for you if you can remember: 3 tv channels on your rented black and white TV, black forest gateaux, free school milk, the zx-80, klackers, vinyl car seats and Elvis dying.
    a thread for nostalgia, reminiscing and 'were mars bars really 10p or did i imagine it?' type posts.

    just watched leggs & co on 1976 TOTP, never did understand why my old man watched top of the pops, i can appreciate that now.

  • Elvis is dead?

  • ^^^ I also only remember 5 but put this down to 3 years at art school and the early signs of dementia.

  • actually, i don't know what any of you are talking about.

    I'l keep out.

  • I also sat GCSE's having missed O-Levels by about 3 years I think.

    But I was milk monitor at my first school and I was 12 when my parents upgraded to a colour TVand then had to wait until I move out to have a TV with a remote.
    I also am still lacking about 3 layers of skin from the back of my thighs which was ripped from them by the burgundy vinyl seats in my Grans Morris Marina.

    Emmanuel the film still don't understand it

    Party seven
    Smoking everywhere
