May I join you with this one. Naturally first, my family but there are not many of us in Perth. Fish 'n chips in newspaper (for old times sake) I do love a bacon n' egg butty. Early morning walk with my dog (and I mean really early) Land of Hope and Glory (when we can all join in) A really good horror movie (when I am on my own) Roses My time on the forum (especially the laughs that come with it) Good news about the CCFC Mushrooms (my weakness any way they come) Pork crackling New shoes A good time with friends (hoping that will always be) Left alone with a box of chocs (I guess this would have to be last) All not necessarily in that order. I am not hard to please am I Big grin Big grin Big grin Big grin Edited by member, 22nd Dec 2015 3:42 am

On Saturday morning I was sitting on my scooter in the Upper Precinct pausing to have a cigarette while the hustle and bustle went on around me. A friend looked at me and asked, "What are your thoughts Robin?" My answer was simply this. "Just memories, just memories ............ I'm home." My friend understood.

Despite the evidence of my driving licence photograph, I think I am usually of a fairly sunny disposition, i.e. a smile on my face for instance when I am playing sport or demolishing something (oh I do get a kick from the dropping of a big chimney or a block of flats, but I really like wielding the sledge hammer myself) They used to say rugby was a sport for lads to work off their natural aggression and lately since I`ve started to learn golf, it is the pleasure I get from a shot I have hammered and it's gone for miles and miles and miles (at least out of sight - my vision isn`t first class). I can give one instance where this disposition to wearing a natural smile can get you into trouble. E.g. my future mother in law was having an "up and downer" with her sister, a real good going "chuck the kitchen sink at it " row. I was a mere innocent bystander. Part way through there was an interlude in the melee. The sister observed "what`s that idiot laughing at?" I`m sure the question was rhetorical, but I never got the chance to correct the inaccurate description. I think I am happiest though at "unexpected pleasures", often a hidden view, or an event like a mother duck shepherding her little waddlers over a stretch of open ground and then to watch them flop into the water. Present unexpected pleasure - a host of golden daffodils - two months too early but welcome nonetheless.

What makes people happy? Other peoples misery. After 28 years in the ambulance service and been retired for 21 years the most frequent question I am asked is " What was the worst incident you attended?" After every accident there was always a queue of "rubber neckers" trying to get a view of a serious injury. To the "worst injury" question I usually reply a flat hedgehog on the A45. I have never, ever been asked what are my happiest memories.
