Geoffs Life After Work !

Life is just beginning

Them were the days after watching The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society film

What a fantastic film showing the British way of life at the end of the War altho filmed in Guernsey.Memories of my youth were definitely invoked !! Everything was so clear cut in those days (I started skule in 1949) at the ripe old age of 4 and a half and left a when I was 15 yrs and 2 weeks old !  None of the mamby pamby stuff and  we all made our own way to school by WALKING and having a laugh with friends,some of them became lifelong pals.Respect from we juniors in those days was of paramount importance,step out of line and a clip round the ear hole put us back in place.We had NO tv or phone and playing out on the street with other kid was the norm.One of my pals didnt have electricity in his house,however we used to go in his home on a Sunday night and listen to a fading Radio Luxembourg on Redifusion Radio .Wearing Jeans that were well worn and are now fashionable ! Designer clothes were unheard of. How did people survive without computers and mobile phones?What has become of the Britain I grew up and had the best times of my young life? The Coronation St way of life doesnt exist anymore,thieves get a slap on the wrist ( and a gentle one at that)There was a popular song in the early 60,s  ” Bobbies on their bicycles 2 x 2″ there aren’t any street walking Bobbies anymore. Commit  a crimes and you may get away with it ! Heaven forbid IF you do a couple of miles over the speed limit or park on Yellow lines because motorist are very vulnerable when it comes to being penalized and fined ! All in all I am happy to have lived through those wonderful,law controlled days and fear for future generations in the way the world is being run. As the saying goes ” Ah,for the good old days”  Peace to you all
