Geoffs Life After Work !

Life is just beginning

Bye Bye Blackpool hello Singapore

Blackpool my home town,and the best youth time anyone could ask for.When we were growing up as nippers we earned money by carrying peoples suitcases from Train Station to Hotel (very lucrative too !!) only on a saturday tho when people seemed to arrive and depart on that day.Penny machines were easy to get pennies from by simply lifting the wooden cash drop with a hacksaw blade and scooping the money from within ! The Pleasure Beach and all of the promenade was our Playground and we NEVER got into trouble (Graffitti was the name of Italians in those far off days ) we used to run donkeys for 6pence a go on the beach and the 3 piers provided me with lots of fun !!This b;og signifies the last days in Blackpool and we treated most of my family to a Thai Banquet in Poulton Le Fylde.We had a great that led us nicely into the next day ready for departure at 11 am bound for a few days in Singapore afore heading off home to Hervey Bay Thanks to ALL my family and friends for making us SO welcome !
