    Takes me back...

    Opened a packet of PG Tips for the first time in years just now and was instantly transported back to childhood and the joy of finding the collectors' card inside.

    What takes you back...?

    Getting out of bed at 4am as a young child to be with my Dad when he drove lorries for the BRS and latterly for Longton Transport.

    Years later, I went on the coach with him when he drove them to the South Coast of England.

    Live your life so that even the undertaker is sad to see you die.

    Re: Takes me back...

    Something that is memorable to me and many others and still brings a tear to our eyes is the evening in Tenerife that @Angusjim offered to buy every one in the bar a drink., the next day in all the newspaper headlines in Scotland carried this headline....

    Ventriloquist Found Murdered in Los Cristianos!

    Live your life so that even the undertaker is sad to see you die.

    Then there was the tragedy of the Skater who fell through the Ice @Ecky.?


    That Coach took me back too.

    I always react to pictures of adverts and Chocolate machines on Railway Stations.
