    Back in '71 when I was only 16, I was working for the co-op dairy delivering milk to make some money before I joined the Army. I don't know if you remember those milk barrows that used to hold the milk crates, you could get 2 crates in at once then start doubling them up. I had a 6 crate load on and was giving it big licks in a housing estate when one of the wee wheels, solid rubber tyres, hit a wee stone. Feckin' thing stopped dead and me and 6 crates of milk went arse over tit over the top of the crate. The boss who was in charge of the horse and cart (honest!), was about 3 streets away. I had to go and get him and 'fess up. He must have liked me because nothing ever came out of my wages.

    8 1/2! I was that weight until I reached 35. I'm an excruciatingly obese 9 1/2 stones now!

    Set fire to a mini,,, I was an apperentice at the time so it's acceptable,,, thing was a no goer so I've had the petrol pipe off at the carb to check the pumps working ok, it was so petrol went  everywher, so I'm trying to decide if it's electrical or the carb, so I squirt some "Quick Start" stuff down the carb,,, carb was obviously the fault as it fired up,,, but then backfired through the carb and set fire to all the petrol soaked sound inhibiting stuff...

    Oops...

    Can't be bothered signing in but it's Annie (red rose) at home came out to a flat tyre decided to do it myself, was wearing boots with straps around, wheel nuts really tight, so stands on wheelbrace, it gets tangled in boots I go tits up (minty's words) and I land splat on the ground on my elbow, my only worry at this point was did any of the neighbours see this, but managed to change the wheel... As the day goes by elbow not functioning... Goes to a and e and sure enough broken elbow arm in sling...lucky I drive an automatic could still just about manage to drive.

    I love Pallet truck one. We did Ideal Homes Exhibition at Earls court. My brother was site agent and we built a 5 bed tudor house in Earls Court. We were on top lift of scaffold and the tilers needed a pallet of tiles put up. My dad jumped on the fork lift and put them up and as he pulled the forks out the heel of the forks caught a a scaffold clip and pulled the lot down in slow motion, every one juping on the rafters or through windows, if yer could have filmed it.
