Me (back left) and Carolyn (far right) at a birthday party of my kid sister (front row, hairband) in the early 1970s.

My mum found this old photograph last week. It was taken at my kid sister's birthday party in the early 1970s. For anyone who harboured any doubt that Carolyn and I go back a long way, I'm back left (blue shirt, no beard) and Carolyn is far right (purple dress). Where did it all go wrong?

No bouncy castles and shite like that in those days. We used to have proper kids' parties, with salmon sandwiches and drinking straws—and the boys all wore ties.

Party some more!
I include this photo for the benefit of Carolyn's children, who won't believe me when I tell them that their mum was really naughty as a child.

  1. As you have a picture of me on your site, I shall post this one on mine and then we're even. I may even forward it to Sir James Savile O.B.E.

  2. would it be wrong of me to assume that in the second picture you were in the process of breaking wind?
