'Are you dancing?'
'Are you asking?'

'Come on snake, let's wriggle.'

Keynsham spelled K..E..Y..N..S..H..A..M. Never thought that one day I would live near it.

KatyK Fri 20-Sep-13 17:30:42

Oh yes - what was that Keynsham thing now? Was it something to do with winning a prize?

wisewoman Fri 20-Sep-13 17:55:18

Postman, postman, do not tarry
Take this to the one I'll marry

mrsmopp Fri 20-Sep-13 17:56:42

Can't talk any more - the pips have gone.
Putt more pennies in!
No, there's a queue outside the kiosk and its raining!
Pip pip pip pip

Press button A when the caller answers
press button B to get your money back.

mrsmopp Fri 20-Sep-13 17:58:21

It's snowing down south = your slip is showing.

I've laddered my nylons!

wisewoman Fri 20-Sep-13 18:00:58

My father: "Why do you need to talk to friends on the phone - you only saw them an hour ago" What on earth would he think nowadays as teenagers are surgically attached to theirs?

Keynsham, wasn't it Horace Batchelor(?) and his football tips, or was it racing? He had adverts on Radio Luxembourg.
