Luckily one of the bigger kids got a stick and dragged him out, saved me from being an only child

    We had no ponds unless you count Sefton park lake. We had Lewis's field which was totally unremarkable but suitable for cricket or football. You had to climb over an iron fence to get in though and one time my cousin impaled his arm on the spikes. Went right through, claret everywhere. We were very upset because he was our best bowler.


    They built houses on it back in the 1980s and that was the end of that.

    a biggish one near me(at times). it varies on the rainfall, but can on occasion come over the road. half loaf pond is its local name. if its been a dry winter it can become quite small

    I've posted this before.... Up in Glasgow, I had a beautiful park, within 10 mins walk of home, with a lovely waterfall and pond, where you could hire boats and go round the pond, or over to a small 'island' in the middle. Tons of fun for a teenager!

    See pics here: https://www.google.com/search?q=rouk...BwrawD63Cv2pM:

    The island was great for taking girlies to, making camp fires, drinking beer and smoking a few joints... Stuff happened there, especially at night, that would make your toes curl

    We should count ourselves lucky to have these places on our doorstep - these days, because of the growth of our towns and cities, such places are no longer within easy reach of kids.Also if you were up to no good, like Marco and the rest of the "soapdodgers", you were left alone much more, as any outraged citizen had to find a phone box or go home to call the "scuffers", if they could be arsed. Different now that everyone has a mobile phone.

    Bright and sunny about 5 Deg C, although one might not believe it from the poor photo (taken tho kitchen window).

    Monster has been fed, waiting around for more. When he/ she goes Little Timid will probably arrive.
