Digger, do you still have your anorak? :lol:

Yes, it's a shame kids can't be allowed that freedom these days, but in our day there weren't nearly so many cars or lorries on the roads and they were so much safer. Bring back the steam trains and transport all the heavy freight by rail rather than road I say. Then we can don our anoraks and ride our bikes. :lol:

I did have a parka a few years later when I was at tech college.

I used to have a cagool and a Parker one of thoseParkers that when you zipped it up, it when right up to the eyes.

Most lads at school had them and on a wet day the cloakroom would be full of them

And no doubt you often went home with the wrong one Adrian! My brothers used to! :lol:

We all had anoraks and I'm sure Kirks pet shop did a roaring trade in cat bells because we used to thread them onto the end of our anorak draw cords at the waist and neck! Oh the sixties! :lol:

Then maybe it was recognisable by the woolly mittens hanging by elastic from your sleeves! :lol:

Remember infants school when your mum used to do that to stop you losing them? The elastic went all the way up one sleeve, around your back and down the other sleeve! :lol:

Oh yes, socks on our hands when our gloves were soaking through making snowballs! But oldbg, If you're who I think you are, we were in the same year at school and I don't remember you being so cruel! :lol:

Don't worry oldbg, your secret ID's safe with me! I thought I should know you by some of the things you said. Then after your latin blunder, I made it my business to find out exactly who you were! :lol:
