Wow! any child would have really loved to have had that for a present I am sure. Ok, so now who is the chubby little chap.

I thought this little rag-a-muffin was a girl with all that long blonde hair!
Nice well made castle or fort though.

What fat cheeks he's got...he looks a bit like a bloomin' hamster.

Val B said...

My guess is that he is George.

Johnb said...

Hi Val,
What makes you think it's George?
You'll soon be getting Bayley, you must be getting excited about that.
Happy New Year.

Ok it's time to put you all out of your misery...no more kidding around,...the kid with the homemade fort is me.

I reckon that the boy is john b I can see his mum there with that curly hair

Johnb said...

Sorry, no prizes for guessing that one correctly Yvonne.

It looks like there are two dummies in this picture next to the fort.Oh no! one is a pacifier.Just kidding JohnB.Did you have blond hair back then.The reason I ask is that when my sisters and I were real young we all had blond hair but as we got to about 8 or 9 years old our hair went brown.As time went on my hair went gray but my sisters hair stayed brown.I don't know how women can keep the same coloured hair.I guess it must be something in the water and their healthy lifestyles.Anyway,if we were all blond back then we were not dumb. I think most people were smart that lived on Cuckoo Estates because they branched out all around the world and that comes from your upbringing with common sense and street smarts.I have a picture that was taken at 50,Greatdown Road of me with 2 of my sisters when we had blond hair.I will have to try and dig it out from all my boxes of photos and send it in sometime.

Hi PDRAY,
I am told that my older sisters would take it upon themselves to peroxyde (dye/bleach) my hair under much protest from me I would imagine. So that I would look cute as a page boy at their weddings.
Later of course, after my Tony Curtis and TV Roll Ducks Arse and sideburns period, my hair turned brown, curly and grew longer from drinking too much beer, whiskey and smoking Woodbines and rolling my own Old Holborn probably.
I am now a silver haired sophisticated soon to be balding senior citizen old fart with occasional gas like Tommy.

yvonneh said...

you are mean johnb as well as being smelly, that is what an old fart is with occasional gas isn't it?
I would have thought a trip to Florida would have been a good prize.

How about a cigar instead?

Johnb said...

Where 'ere you be...

Show me someone that doesn't fart occassionaly, even silently, and I'll show you someone who doesn't lift their leg or eat Heinz baked beans which if you remember are supposed to be good for the heart.

yvonneh said...

Sorry Johnb Dont smoke , dont drink, so it will have to be Florida. You must admit though you did look like your mum except you are not wearing a pinny.

PDRAY said...

Johnb,
In an attempt to change the subject matter from bodily functions,you mentioned Heinz baked beans.There is nothing better then toast with real butter and Heinz baked beans on top.I would fold the toast over and scoff it down as the butter and bean sauce would drip down my arm,which gave me a good reason to lick this residue up from my wrist to my elbow.
When I met my future wife in Australia,she's American poor thing,I introduced her to Heinz baked beans on toast and she loved it.Needless to say, as we brought up our brood of 5 girls we gave them Heinz baked beans on toast and all of them loved it.Now that we all live in America we still eat this British delicacy now and then.

For my way of thinking the best baked beans ever are Bush's baked beans in the USA. I wish you could get them over here, I could almost live on them.

PDRAY said...

Hi Jim,
Bush's baked beans are really good over here in the U.S. They are the closest to the taste of Heinz baked beans and if the store does not have Heinz we get bush's because we enjoy them too.
