All for a Quid...
« on: Oct 28, 2022, 07:06:30 AM »
When I was 16 you could have a good night out on a quid.
I used to go down the pub, sup 16 pints of light ale, fly to Tenerife and back, go dancin' down the Mecca, buy a Triumph Spitfire coupe, drive to the chip shop an' get haddock, chips. mushy peas with poulet et dauphinois a' la creme de champignons (including a full bottle of couvoisier cognac) get a taxi home, tip the driver five bob and still have half a' crown left in me pocket!!
Ah yes, even the day's of flying to Tenerife  for a tenner are long past...I mean, what can you get for a quid today?
A Greggs hot sausage roll if your lucky!!
Halcyon day's.  ;D

Thank you for the days, the days you gave me.
The older I get, the better I was!

So anyway I went into Boots the Chemist with my bad chest last week (as I did not want to leave it outside) and I explained to the chemist that I have a chesty cold...Oh right madam he said...Vick's Vapour chest rub would help with that madam.  
Anyway, he had no sooner placed the jar of Vick's on the counter when these two large beefy blokes ran up to the counter with big wooden mallets and smashed the Vick's jar to pieces!!  
OMG I said...why the hell did they do that?  
So the chemist profusely apologising said “sorry about that madam...but they are both from Iceland”    
Iceland? I said...what's that got to do with it?     
'Well madam' he replied...'they are both '  Reykjaviks' (Wreck Yer Vick's)
