John Frank & Teresa
 
  A picture of me (right) my brother Frank and my little sister Teresa. I look about 12 yrs old, so that would be c.1962. What was my Mum thinking of - letting me wear a jacket like that. I don't look too bothered though, do I?

Hello Sandra. Glad you like the picture. Seems like only yesterday that me, Billy Summers and Norman Skellon were playing cricket in Ruskin Ave; using the lamp-post (or gas-lamp as we used to call it) as a wicket. Wish I was still doing so. You haven't posted any pic's for a while. . . what's up, are you scared (har har)

Thanks Tony, I'll give Den a ring - it has been ages since I saw him. Regarding my kith and kin : I have two sisters (one younger than me, one older) and I have four brothers, all younger than myself. Quite a gang eh ?

hi john den will love that,and i always thought that there were only you and your frank,so your mam and dad had 7 kids, big family john, so did they not have a telly....lol

Comments by John Brown, 19th June 2012  
Hi Tony. Us kids were born in 2 lots, as it were. A block of four, then a gap of about 10 years, then along came another 3. I don't know why the gap. My Mum used to say that that was just how it worked out - draw your own conclusion there. I remember running home from junior school to watch Popeye, so we must have had a telly by about 1957/8 I suppose. Dad did watch telly (sport and news mainly) but obviously not all the time (Har Har). He worked down't pit, and it still amazes me how he managed to clothe and feed us all. Me and Frank alone could eat for England ! Ah. . . memories.
