    Childhood excitement!

    Talking of painful memories. I remember exploring the Abbey ruins at Lilleshall in the early 70’s with my dear old friend Teasdale who, for no apparent reason, decided that it would be interesting to experience first hand the sensation of peeing on an electrified fence. Seeing him thrown backwards holding his crotch in agony put me off trying it myself. So funny. That reminds me that i had a C-scope metal detector back then, very simple tool, only 2 knobs and it worked a treat. We found a rotted metal (?) box buried at depth and under a stone with what looked like medieval seals in it. They were wrapped in a rotted grungy leathery material as I recall and I thought I’d found the crown jewels. I often wonder what happened to them. I took them to school once for a project and they were unfortunately ‘mislaid’, never to be seen again.

    I think Blakeyboy has earned the cigar with Christine Rodgers. There are several pictures of her on imdb.

    Some of his other offerings appear to exhibit artificial toning and, coincidentally, are unslabbed.
