Meme-ing, That's All 
7th-Mar-2018 05:46 pm
Brothers!
So much for starting a meme to help me to keep posting!! I am a couple of days out, so thought I would do three, to catch up.

3. Do you still talk to the first person you kissed?
N/A ... unless Jiffy (& Perry, & Misty) counts

4. Do you get on with your grandpa?
My Dad's father died when I was 14, but I didn't know him as he had a stroke that affected his brain when I was 4. He had been in the army for a few years, and apparantly as the years went along he loved working in Sunday School teaching, etc ... but sadly I was his oldest grandchild so he never had a chance to get to know the 3 of us.

My Mum's Father died when I was 17 ... he was a real gentleman. I loved him, and although he was Victorian, we got on very well. He was a very genuine person, and I wish I had been able to get to know him that bit better; although I do remember some of the chats I had with him, especially about WWI. He actually died on a Christmas Day, so that means we never forget the date!

5. What was your favourite cartoon as a kid?
Many of the shows I loved were not true cartoons ... yes, I am old enough to remember The Woodentops -


But my favourite cartoon is Whacky Races (here is the intro for those who don't know it) -

Weird - I used to like the Woodentops, but looking at them now, they're a bit creepy! Puppets! *shudders*

I will admit to loving the original Thunderbirds, Clangers, etc ... so, yes, I do like puppets!!

It's the obvious strings and clanky movements that freak me out - I love the Clangers.

Funny thing is, I would miss the strings ... part of the fun!!

Oh yes, I thought Catch the Pigeon was a great spin off ... it doesn't always work, does it?
