Below Sue and me at the last party run at Mill Pk, a 60s Party night in around 2004. We went to a lot of trouble for this one, Sue making us both Leather look waistcoats and trousers, buying wigs, Transfers, Chains, Hats and heavy Lockets. It took us 4 showers over 3 days to remove the Tattoos (transfers).This party (pre my Diabetes) went on til around 6am.
This was a local pub "The Golden Lion" "Tramps & Vamps" night. This was around 1989 as you can tell by how much younger (and slimmer) we look. The Landlord/Lady closed one bar to just fancy dressers, we all had to drink out of (cleaned) Jam jars, yuk but fun.
Again, this one below was a Mill Pk 60s night, lots of hair, Beads, Ban and the bomb slogans. Left to right Sue, Me, Les and partner Mike.
This one (below) from around 1991-2 from the now closed local pub the "Talbot". Sue as a "Red Indian" me as a Scotsman, complete with Kilt and Sporran.
This was Steve our adopted (now deceased) Son as "Whispering grass" (Don Estelle) from "It ain't arf ot mum", bloody good he was too.
The picture (below) is of our Son Roy and myself at a "Golden Lion" pyjama party.Roy dressed as a woman, with a wig, makeup and a sexy nightie. I'm dressed as "Wee Willy Winky" and complete with candle. Before you lot comment, I got lots of stick over that one as you can imagine, especially being caught at the urinal in the Gents with my "Nightie" pulled up!!!!.
Again (below) our Son Roy dressed as a Woman. He was so good at it that at around 3am he was propositioned, twice!!!.
A few of the lads at the "Golden Lion" Pyjama party (mentioned earlier). Left to Right Bob, big Glyn, Me, Ian (landlord), Roy.
Sue and I going out of the front door to a 60s party (below) dressed again as Hippies.
Below, Mill Pk 60s - 70s Hippy night, L to R, John, Me, and site owner Brian. If I remember correctly this was the "Closing night" party and it went on till 6 am"!!!!!.
This picture is from the same party as above, pictured Me and our friend Annette (midlands).
Again (below) at the Mill Pk party, this time Me and Sue.
These last two are oldies, from around 1985. Taken at the "Talbot" when our old friends Keith and Judith ran it. This was a New Years Eve bash.
At least one of these pictures was taken with a Polaroid Camera, then scanned. Sue and I were dressed as "The Sun" newspaper cartoon characters "Hagar and Helgar". I also pulled around a kiddies toy dog on wheels as the characters dog "Snert".
So there you are, dont we do silly, but very enjoyable things when we were young (younger).
Apologies for the amount of pictures but again once I start I never Know when to stop.
Joke of the day.
10 storeys up.
The second man not believing him asked him to do it again. The man took another shot and repeated the same thing.
When he arrived back on the 10th floor the second man said," What the hell I'll give it a try." He took a shot and jumped out the window. He fell gaining speed, then splattered all over the sidewalk. The first man was sitting at the bar, when the Bartender said
"Damn Superman, you're a real dick when you've been drinking".
