    Thanks buddy, I didn't have time to buy beer, or even bread, but I found a few cans in the fridge anyway :) Since I won't have any bread in the morning, I might have to go out for breakfast ;) :thumbsup:

    I imagine so Harvey, and advertising can be helpful in terms of dating a knife, sometimes at least :thumbsup:

    Fascinating Harvey :) :thumbsup:

    Thanks for taking the time to write all that Jack, it's very interesting. I knew about the meaning of the name Bent as I have relatives who are Bent's, again a surname I've only seen rarely outside of the northwest. For example as a kid (1970's) there were I think 3 Bents in the whole of Greater London, and I was related to 2 of them.
    Saying that there is John Bent, who founded Massachusetts, whose forefathers were from Hampshire in England and whose descendant Charles Bent set up Bent's Fort (now Bent's Old Fort) in Colorado.
    I like the banking story. Same tricks, different century...:D

    And midges.
    You can't forget the midges. :eek:

    No trouble David :) That's very interesting, I went to school in Sheffield near a place called Bent's Green (it wasn't Bent's Green school though!) :thumbsup:

    Definitely! :rolleyes:

    Oh yeah of course. I've seen buses in Sheffield going to Bent's Green. :thumbsup:

    Here's a pic of Bent's Green shops a couple of years before I started secondary school. The fence on the left of the photo is the fence around the school. You will notice the conveniently-situated off-license right next to it, and though you probably can't make it out on the photo, a few yards away, outside the post office, again conveniently situated, the cigarette machine. Vaulting that fence, and sprinting across 'No Man's Land' kept me fit as a lad! :D :thumbsup:

    Yes, it was the terminus for the 81 and 82 routes. I can remember waking up there on the last bus as a teenager :rolleyes:

    True story! :D
    I was at Anderson's Coffee Roasters; they have fancy imported sweets up at the counter for impulse buying. I'd never seen Jammie Dodgers in person before, and knew I had to grab a box in case they never stock them again.
    Oh boy, Jack, that does look like a heavy load of goodness! Is it too soon to ask which you prefer: the stag or the rosewood?

    The best ones usually are :) Jammie Dodgers were a children's party favourite when I was a kid, but I think it may be a very long time since I last had one :) I'm real pleased with it Rachel, and if I'd known how good the rosewood would look I would have certainly ordered more. The stag is special though :thumbsup:

    You are most certainly a busy man, Jack.

    You'll have to let us know what you think of them. If it were me, I'd have bought their stock as surely my boys would want their share.

    The rosewood is certainly getting my attention. I know... shocking, right? :D

    Don't apologize Harvey. These stories and photos are very interesting and should be seen, remembered and appreciated.
