I am going to be hardline on this. There is a need for thin flowing fabrics today but no need to wear shorts. I am not on the beach (not yet anyway), I am not encased in suntan cream (though maybe I should be-more on that later) and I'm not reading a Wilbur Smith novel (my summer of reading is sorted already). I might wear linen. I might wear cheesecloth. But my trousers will be full length. If Alan Deadicoat wears shorts, I will too. Until then, the ankles stay covered.

The spirit of summer is taking over the show however once Nigel arrives as he is reinventing the ice lolly (elsewhere the popsicle, icy pole, freezer pop). Not quite convinced he'll get them to us in their frozen state but here's hoping. Zooms. Mivis, Fabs all great names from the days queuing by the ice cream van-what can Nige do to beat that? Find out from 6!

The suntan cream discussion is sparked by the confession which, in passing, referred to buying the wrong kind of ointment (coconut in this case) so we'll look at that. Actually, all things considered, why don't we just tee-up some SUMMER CLASSICS for the oldies. Looks like sunshine over most of the country so today's the day. But not for bare legs, obvs.

    1984 would be good too as it was the year I left school to start college to do my BTEC National Diploma in Business and Finance.

    Deebee, don't you mean what a difference a year makes?

    Jenny, here here, more often would be good.

    I'm going for 1984: It's Nelson Mandela day and that was the year of The Special's tune of the same name.

    Good Morning All

    Lovely to catch up with all the posts last night. Much better than all the Benny Hill stuff... And well done for all the mentions, especially Jennie's double... ;o)

    We were at some friends for a barbecue last night. I was reminded that they also had one about a year ago - it was the day before I started my yucky treatment. What a difference a day makes...

    Ryecroft - enjoy your time in Harrogate. My Dad went there once years ago for a conference. It sticks in my memory only because as a small child living in Kent it felt like he was going a very long way away - he may just as well have been going to the Moon.

    My prediction for ARFO - 1982

    I'm going to press 'post comment' now and the new blog will have arrived, and I'll find I've been talking to myself...

    :o)

    Mandy - just happened to be aligned this week! Doesn't happen often.

    The lightning was pretty spectacular and the thunder pretty loud, Florence - I do like a good storm though. Ok now, just waiting for another dose tonight!

    Morning all!

    Well down Jenny on your 3 mentions this week....have you formed alliances with the NYM? ;)

    I think the ARFO year could be 1964 because today is the actual 50th anniversary of the Rolling Stones touring!

    See you on the next blog.

    Mandy

    Morning everyone!

    #160 Jennie, I hope your weather has settled! I was listening to Janice Long last night and lots of her listeners were telling her about the spectacular lightning in the southern part of the country!

    I'm guessing '87, the year after your guess!
