    Teesside in the sixties and seventies was not a place for the faint hearted.

    I spent an evening in the Juniper Berry pub in the late 60’s .... that was an education for a young lad. I understand it’s all posh now.

    That place has had many reincarnations over the years, but in the late 60's to the 80's ...................................... :scared: Let's just say the clientele was an eclectic bunch :ashamed: (Just what I've been told of course!)

    We would often "round off" the night at the Bongo Club (all the Smoggies will know where I mean) and it would usually be when I was home with a pocketful of cash. I struggled to save money in those days. The evening would often start out well but we were a hard bunch in those days with the Live Hard Play Hard ethic.

    When I was much younger I always said it would be a miracle if I made it past 35. I am way beyond that now and I can honestly say I have no regrets. I would have done a few things rather differently if I had the opportunity, but no regrets. Even today, there are a couple of things would not tell, but it seemed a great idea at the time. :-)

    Edit: A rather sobering thought is that I am the last man standing. My "playtime" friends, all larger than life characters, are all dead. I suppose I chickened out a bit earlier than they did.

    Without too much detail, some of the “women” in there had size 12 feet & prominent Adam’s apples ........... & they were the better looking ones. My mate bumped into one young women in the crowd & a very deep base voice said “just f...ing watch it”

    It was a real eye opener for a sheltered lad like me, but we had a really good night in there, people watching.

    Yes you could certainly have a good night in there 'people' watching. As long as you politely declined the odd 'proposal', then all was well :ashamed:

    Wow, this thread has gone a long way off @Shedendman's original question - one of the 'better' digressions I've seen on here. :clapping:

    If you want rid of it I would happily pay the postage and a bit more, just welded up a Metro and starting on the Mk2 Jag, keep banging my helmet on some part of the car and end up using the safety squint method, then end up with a sunburnt forehead!
