  1. Yes i know we have had or are having a pandemic buteveryone is trying to get back to some form of normality and it seems (especially at my surgery) that it's almost impossible to get to see a doctor. At mine you ring for ages then on getting through the receptionist is asking "What is wrong with you?" orif it's urgent they say "I will get the doctor to ring you in the next few hours". Today my wife was quite ill with an infection so the Doc prescribed her antibiotics over the phone. She became worse during the day and on ringing back she was told if it was an emergency to go to the Walk In as they had no appointments. I think that Doctors have got into the comfort zone and prefer to carry on doing their work over the phone. Patients need to be seen and not dealt with over the phone. Someone is going to suffer through their reluctance to get back to some sort of normality.
  2. My first love. Anyone know anything about Barbara or how she is? Fred xx
  3. Oh, Bob Moat. I "speak" to him often on Facebook. Don't know if it's mentioned on here before but Nozzie sadly was killed in a car accident a few years ago. Funnily enough, after finding each other on here ,me Noz and Bob met at the pub on Queens road for a few pints before a Blades match about a year before old Noz died. Luckily i got the chance to see him and all because of this forum.
  4. How you doing pal. Long time no see. I live next to the school on Fircroft Avenue, been there since 1978 after i married our lass. Who is Bob by the way? Hi Paul. Our kid is fine, lives 200 yards from me. As for Foxy, he lives 50 yards from me and is on then the committee at the Hartley House club. We all play snooker every weekend in the club.
  5. Hi Paul. And i remember you. Ian played in the school footie team with me and he then had a few games for the Horseshoe playing in goal. Are you both still in Sheffield?
  6. Yes Paul, i did. My best mates were Dave Newton, Nozzie, Danny Wall and many others. Thought Jennings was a **** until the 4th year when he suddenly changed.
  7. I reckon around 2002/03. I kept going in right until it's closure. Changed from a wonderful pub into a drug infested ****hole. A real shame. Over 30 years spent in there playing for the footy and snooker teams making a hell of a lot of very good friends along the way. Great times.
  8. A dog called Porky Does acupuncture cure pins and needles?
  9. Yes when i was a kid, out of the bedroom window with a toy parachute. I now have bowed legs! Does acupuncture cure pins and needles?
  10. Twins who went to Hatfield House Lane school in the mid 60s. Just wondering if anyone knows what happened to the girls . I went out with Barbara for a while and would like to know if she has had a good and happy life.
  11. I was born on Woodside Lane in 1953, and we left in 1958 during the slum clearance and went to Sheffield lane top. We moved to Foremark Rd and are the Hawnt family. I made friends with the Rowberry's , mainly Alan and barry but remember the other 3 lads Johnny, Peter and Christopher. Any of you guys reading this or anyone who knew us please get in touch .
  12. Had a pint (or 6) with Graham today. Will pass on your regards if i know who u are.
