Photo-a-Day (Wednesday, 17th December, 2014)
Boy this stirs the memory!! Absolutely David. You know when you see something and it just hits the mark. Would you mind if I downloaded and saved your picture please David?
That depends on what he is doing. The mind boggles.
I certainly do...didn't you? :-))
My mind doesn't boggle Derek - he's doing what most of us probably did on a trip to Mesnes Park- having fun.
What memories this brings back.
If he falls first thing his mother would do is phone for an ambulance.
And in doing so had to the queue at the A and E
All childen do this. Mick - are you saying children shouldn't play incase they have an accident?
She would say "Don't come running to me if you break your leg."
You certainly have brought back memories.
Get a life Mick, the lad is playing. If he falls and gets hurt then this is an accident, a trip to A&E might be required, is that not what it is for? the clue is in the title! Somebody give Mick some red tape there are kids playing in a park.
Brilliant can't remember how many times we climbed up them ”scissors" as kids never used
the steps. Then roly polloyed down the grass slope Happy days xx
Those obstructions stop the kids from sliding down on tea-trays from the cafe. Crafty council!
Yes, did that often, and rolled down the grassy slopes at the side of the steps.
You can always rely on Mick
I remember doing that and having fun as Bradshaws Girl says.
Back then there were 'Keep of the Grass' signs everywhere but the parks were immaculate.
Nice pic, David. Well caught.
Yes even I did things like this when I was young but the difference is I was out and about everyday falling out of trees and falling off bikes so me and my generation learned how to fall, this lad would just go splodge if he fell.
And if that was me up there and I fell my mother would have just spit on her hanky and give my wound a wipe.
The A and E is snowed under and I believe a lot of the ones using it today dont know about how to seek medical help because they dont watch news programs and they dont read newspapers, there lives revolve around a frozen pizza and stick a DVD on.
Long may many a boy/girl do this , just as we did as children. Great picture David, great memory, thankyou .
Not at all Jude, download away :)
Lovely photo David. They have done a really good job with Mesnes Park.
Sorry about my earlier comment Mick, I didn't realise you know this lad and his mother (assuming he is with his mum).
Either that or that picture is much better than I first thought, because if you can tell this lad is a bit of a wet blanket who "doesn't know how to fall" like you do.
This lad could be a future Judo champion or rugby international who would know how to fall (just like you). You are obviously a judgemental fool who has nothing better to do and probably work in H & S. So I say again, get a life!
Looks like you can do without my comments at the moment Mike, suffice to say that i agree with JAY.
Memories,memories children don`t see danger and if your mum wasn`t around it was just part of natural play. Loved aubrey`s comment..... more memories.
Cheers David, much appreciated.
