That must have been quite a depressing day then.


Never mind a depressing day, I've never recovered in over 30 years. :wink:

I've met you,though it was a quite a long time ago I have to agree :)


Yes, and as I recall I don't see any resemblance to you and Rudolph Nureyev; but thankfully haven't seen what part of your body you may be referring to :lol:

On seeing me in cycling tights, a female colleague commented on my resemblance to Max Wall.

What was dad? What about people with ambiguous names, Leslie and Lesley for example?

I have been told I have a face very much like one of the competitors on the Gladiators program. Alas, the rest of me has gone the other way.

Latter side of fifty and feeling less than nifty.
Too many bikes on pegs and too few miles in the legs.

I'm looking like my dad all of a sudden.

Don't know about my mum - she died when I was five.

I used to look like my Dad. More recently I seem to look a lot like my Grandad.

It's a sobering thought that I've now lived longer than either of them.

My maternal grandfather was 94 when he died. Lancashire coal miner and chewed tobacco down the pit, and smoked a pipe all his life. He like a beer or two as well. :D

Paternal grandfather died in his 60s. He was an office worker, but I don't know if he smoked or not or even drank. He died when I was three, so I don't remember him.
