My mate always goes on about how great horse riding is.
I pointed out to him that, if they brought out a motorbike which reared up and skittered across the road every time it passed a plastic bag flapping in a hedge, it would be a criminal offense to ride it. :unsure:

I had more control over my Bike at 80mph than that Bloody Horse on a trot (y)

Every time I go shopping food, the bill sums up to what I once paid for all the food needed for the christmas holydays.

Hedge hopping and scrumping.
Saturday morning TV was Tiswas/Swap Shop, Banana Splits, Scooby Doo and Tarzan, followed by World of Sport inc. Wrestling at 4pm. Chippie dinners all round, happy days 😬

When I became a driver myself, I often gave lifts to hitchhikers.
Until one day I saw a poor chap walking in the rain on the A64 near York, carrying a petrol can and holding his thumb out.
I stopped.
The door was flung open and the passenger seat occupied by a stinking bundle of a toothless old tramp.
"You Sir, are a gentleman and a scholar," he said, "Always works, the old petrol can, I'm going to Leeds please!"
:oops::sick:

I think I left the petrol can in the footwell ;)

shoulda tried starting the older lister diesels on pumps and machines on the building sites

not only did you have to wind the handle like hell, but throw over a lever on the top of each cylinder as well,

okay if there was two of you, but a proper job on your own
Used to do that with the small standby generators, It was always left to the apprentices to do it, Sometimes we forgot to mention throwing the lever.

Cleaning steam engines with paraffin and grease think we called it jazz, then fired them chucking coal
on at high speeds you needed magnets on your feet bounced all over the place,
,One work mate was that frightened on his first passenger trip ,he got back to depot and we never saw him again
