That was a phone in question on the radio today and after thinking it over all day I realised I'd done nothing apart from passing my driving test

Anybody do anything exciting

At the age of 19 I was working full time and running the family home looking after my Dad and younger sister..... my Mum had died suddenly and unexpectedly. When I look back now I don't know how I did it.

Nothing much has changed then

I was in 'the middle' of my apprenticeship as a draughtsman in the drawing office at Irlam Steel Works.
Using an old fashioned drawing board and tee square, happy days.
How times have changed, when I retired in 2011, I was using a computer and 'modelling' in 3D parametric solids.

it was my birthday,i was on a deepwater trawler outa fleetwood..the russians had just opened the white sea to foreign trawlers....because the vessel was rigged with all the up to date gizmo"s..this aroused the suspicians of the reds....they came along side us and ordered us to pull our nets back aboard...an officer and a kid who"s hat was a size to big for him, armed with a machine gun which the rascal had trained on my mid-rifhe wanted to know everything about the equiptment on top of the bridge(the officer)we readily informed him what each piece of equiptment was used for.meanwhile the kid with the automatic kept shifting his gaze from me to the officer....he waqs satisfied with the explanations, and asked for a couple of baskets of cod fish,which we dutifully gave him, then and only then the nervouse kid lowered th automatic, much to my relief.

What an adventure....!!!!
