A Fish storry

A guy who lives at Lake Conroe

(50 miles north of Houston ) saw a ball bouncing
around kind of strange in the lake and went to

It turned out to be a flathead catfish that had
apparently tried to swallow a basketball which
became stuck in its mouth!!

The fish was totally exhausted from trying to
dive, but unable to, because the ball would
always bring him back up to the surface.
The guy tried numerous times to get the ball out,
but was unsuccessful. He finally had his wife cut
the ball in order to deflate it and release the hungry

You probably wouldn't have believed this,
if you hadn't seen the following pictures:

How to navigate this site.

Hi Tom Sorry ( Mr Editor ) if you think this may help people  put it on the web site, I know what I am saying but will other people your decision Jim.

Hi everybody, one or two people seem to be having a problem using the site,I hope this helps just a little. When you go to the home page on our web site, the only thing you need to bother about is the green box on the right side of the page. 
In that box is dates and how many entries were made on that day. Like this  May 07 ( 3 ) that is showing you that on May 7th there was three entries for that day.  Choose what day you want to view then click on it. You are then taken to the second page where all of the items for that day are shown and numbered, one after the other in the yellow section of that page. At the bottom of each entry there is a place where it says comments, and a number informing how many many people have made a comment on that particular item. If you wish to add your own just click on the word comment.
You are then taken to the next page, and on the left any comments that have been made are showing. Just above these is the words Show original post this can be clicked on at any time to hide the comments and show the original message, which is useful because it saves the need to keep going back a page when you want to refer to it. Click it again to return to normal. Finally it is clear where you enter your comments on the right, but also there are three buttons. Ignore the google button, and also the anonymous button, just click on the middle button that says   Other   then where it says name enter your name. Do not enter anything where it says password, then click on PUBLISH YOUR COMMENT  hooray! you are finished. I hope this has been helpful Jim.

Wally Marshal sent in these great photo's from the past

Hello , Editor.
I have put a Photo of myself & some of the boys off the estate. Some are dead I'm sorry to say. This photo was taken when I had just come home from South America. I was on the Atlantic run down to B/A. for meat etc. In the photo all are from the Cuckoo Estate except for the lad in uniform, he was a friend. Top Left :- Tom Arnold from Wakelin Road, Middle Top:- Tommy Martin from Wakelin Road, Top Right:- Billy Finch from Westcott Cres. sitting down on left, Peter Blanchet from Hillyard Road, In the middle sitting down with the little girl is me Wally Marshall, from 54 upfield Road. Just home from sea. The photo was taken At Billy Finch's house, 69, Westcott Cres. That house also was our party house all through the war,
every weekend BAR NONE!. If you don't believe me, Just ask the neighbors LOL.
Please tell the person who wrote about the little boy who was drowned in Upfield Road ,, His name was Ronnie Crush. His Brother also was killed in North Africa we all knew him as
Porky. He was in the London Irish Regiment.
The Street Party is outside our house. 54, Upfield road.The Lady on the right with her arms folded with the apron on, was my Mother. Where was I ???. LOL. I was inside playing the PIANO with the window wide open.
I am so sorry it is a rather long email, but that's how it was. If you would like any more info,
Just ask me.
Your friend from long ago... Wally Marshall.
