Sorry. The message you got after clicking on my new and unintentional post last night was entirely my fault and I apologise. As a penance, when I make a balls up of this nature, I usually go down to the bottom of the garden and eat worms. With the current high temperatures, the ground is so hard and the little critters are lying doggo. Perhaps you can suggest some other way, but keep it clean!
Preston based Michael Brady is 44 years old and, like some of us, rather overweight and battling depression. But there is a legitimate reason. Michael was born with rheumatoid arthritis and didn’t start to walk until six years old. He’d been stuck indoors for over 10 years with aching legs and associated health issues and just had to get out of the house. Things were about to change.
Michael was motivated and inspired when a friend showed him a copy of The Searcher magazine and, as a result, went and bought a metal detector. In no time at all he says, “I was hooked”. The good news is that the hobby encouraged him to get out and walk more. As a result, he’s gradually losing weight and friends now call him ‘Metal Micky’.
I have a vague memory of long ago playing ‘shops’ with my cousin and using ‘pretend’ coins. They were bi-metallic and designed with values representing the currency of the time, pounds, shillings and pence, but unlike the real thing.
