1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Thanks for that mate.

    Just trying to create an image. Got loads of photos from lads all over the country, but unsure as to whether the dates are right on them.

    I reckon - and drink has been taken - I was in penny round collars, patched South Sea bubble jumpers, semi-flares and (possibly) stack heels... I could be wrong, but probably not too far out.

    Budgie-gear around that time, too:

    Wife's been away for the week in Spain with her pal.

    Daughter away ski-ing with the school in Italy, until today... I've been pissed all week. (My car has done zero-miles.) :satisfied:

    Currently enjoying some voddie/pear cider/Red Bull cocktails... why would I be out tonight?

    I'm accruing 'Brownie-points', for when United play QPR, then (little) City play the Arse (Up the Arsenal, say I!) tomorrow, so I'm getting blootered at home, tonight... then going out tomorrow, because I'm a kind, considerate, husband/dad. :happy:

    Some guys I know, from another forum - not gonnae name it, but it's very Scottish - are now resident on here, having learned this place exists... so I'll say no more.

    In 1969, Easter weekend, I was up England's highest mountain in the Lake District (just a 'hill' in Scotland :nodding:... no fun there, then. :satisfied:

    I think you'll find that the chaps who have inhabited here, for so long, can point you in the right direction... :satisfied:

    I'm looking forward to going to my first 'do', later this month with 'Little Queenie' and her people, in Manchester - though i'm sure some of them will know people I know - and vice-versa.

    It's only on finding this site, I realised how close I've stayed - not the hair, as I have loads of it(!) - to the old style.

    Always wore brogues - in one form or another. (Loafers, too - in various guises.)

    Always bought - usually for leisure - BD shirts.

    Polo - though not in our day - shirts... but the style remains the same.

    Boots, albeit in later years, Timbos, Cats, etc... I'm just soooo comfortable in big, bleedin' boots - make me an inch taller, too! (And that 'inch' makes all the difference, eh, girls?) :brick:

    Good suits.

    The always-polished footwear. I hate dirty shoes - what is wrong with people? (I clean my family's shoes - not always appreciated by a teen, BTW.) :satisfied:

    Neat, clean and tidy - that's 'us'.

    Let me get Manchester - and 'the Wheel' - outta the way... I could perhaps be persuaded.

    My missus - despite her (though she never went) affection for Wigan Casino - could be tempted, I reckon...

    We'll see. :happy:
