Nice to see children playing normal games.... But they are still young yet! Lovely picture.


Comment by Alan on 24th August 2017 at 13:38
That's why their called children!!


Comment by Veronica on 24th August 2017 at 14:48
You don't say !!!
Ps its 'they're' not 'their' !
I can 'nit pick' too Al !


Comment by Alan on 24th August 2017 at 16:26
Just a little correction.


Comment by Ken R on 24th August 2017 at 16:43
Good remark Veronica, I always like to improve my grammar.


Comment by trig on 24th August 2017 at 17:05
I like that photo, me


Comment by Veronica on 24th August 2017 at 18:41
We all make mistakes Alan re spelling and grammar, myself included. I never relish pointing out other's mistakes but you seem to thrive on commenting on other people's comments instead of saying something original about the photograph which is all that is necessary really. Instead of 'correcting' :my well intentioned observation say something nice instead! You have made two comments without mentioning the photo! Apologies to John.


Comment by . Ozymandias . on 24th August 2017 at 18:44
When it comes to spelling corrections, I would be inclined to exercise caution if I were you Veronica, as this kind of innocuous activity can often be perceived as being patronising in the extreme, and may cause unintended offence to certain individuals.

I trust you didn't get anything fast in anything during your recent visit to the seaside by the way?. Or leave your bucket and spade on the tram?

Regards. Ozy.


Comment by John D on 24th August 2017 at 19:10
Not really nit picking, Veronica, but it should be"it's" not"its". Sorry, just having a bit of fun.


Comment by irene roberts on 24th August 2017 at 20:04
A lovely photo! My grandchildren Edie and Oliver have all the "mod cons"; "I-pads", "tablets" etc. but I am so proud that they much prefer to "play out" if they can.....riding bikes, making dens, hide-and-seek etc. The "mod cons" take second place every time, I'm glad to say, AND they love to read too. It is a joy to see the children on the photo simply "playing" as WE did. I wish them a happy, carefree childhood.


Comment by Veronica on 24th August 2017 at 21:17
'Touche' JohnD!
Didn't get the head fast Ozy I may have 'lost' it for a few hours in the 40's.
Irene you understood as always!


Comment by Garry on 25th August 2017 at 09:04
Irene's spot on on. Games played by boys and girls- hopscotch, hide and seek tig or tag, cowboys and indians etc. All game played in the streets where kids could seen... and just before dark, mam and dad shouting their kids name to come in for bath, bed and school, and it all cost nothing to have simple fun and games.


Comment by Jemmy on 25th August 2017 at 16:30
I agree with Veronica. Besides, if the computer is set-up correctly, it alerts the user of any spelling errors. No excuse!


Comment by Alan on 25th August 2017 at 16:50
Kids could be seen, Garry.


Comment by Julie on 25th August 2017 at 17:22
Beautifully put Garry.


Comment by Maureen on 25th August 2017 at 20:21
Every night we would play hide and seek,
until 6-45,my Mam shouted "Dick Barton's on"...one night one of the families which had a rather large brood of children..got them all watered,fed and bathed..as the Dad went upstairs to make sure all was well..he noticed that there was one more child that they had..
the little lad couldn't be bothered going home.lol..as for playing out then as all us children did.I couldn't stay indoors at all,but I think children were safer then.


Comment by Garry on 26th August 2017 at 17:35
Would that be radio or TV Maureen lol.


Comment by Maureen on 26th August 2017 at 19:40
