    Been over the park most evenings , a tin of beer and relax after work, it's great what a bit of space can do for a community. I particularly liked the tag rugby which I hadn't known was so popular, I've seen team Frisbee, tug of war, tai chi , tennis , fishing , but tonight I'm watching team quidditch of the harry potter films. is it just me , there are a dozen adults running around some hoops throwing a ball with a 3ft magic wand between their legs and everyone just walk's past as though its normal , I have two choices ,
    Have more beer and join in or go to sleep and get up for work with a clear head.
    , I'm 57 and probably going to spread for at least 9 hr tomorrow and now my finger hurts from typing so I've worn myself out, it must be an age thing , I love to go to work ,

    2 = not yet , dark stopped play , not sure what the end result was , appears to have rules , but the most important is to always have one hand on your magic wand between your legs, ( sounds like a Janet and John sketch , Wogan )

    When I used to work in London, I was amazed at the variety of things going on - guys on there way home playing football in there suits, stunt roller skating, horse riding, army drill training, amateur theatre.

    But be careful with one particular part of Clapham common - especially if you have one two many beers and fall asleep ....:eek:

    They were having a great time, no fouling , I may ask them some questions if I see them again, most builders like football , what's the typical potter player , too young for judges , maybe IT or perhaps it's rehab therapy

    Think womble missed it.

    It was part of the Welsh MP Ron Davies downfall - although he did embarrass himself looking for "badgers" down your way

    You mean the packs of sexually deprived women looking for lone men to ponce on , I just keep out of the bushes and other possible ambush areas and get out before dark , common sense , it's kept me safe for all these years

    Along with other work mates, we would have a game of football after work on a Wednesday night. Would mostly play on Battersea park and then we would stop off at the Youngs pub on Clapham Common for a couple of beers, I'm talking 1980is

    We would finish work at 16.30. Have a kick about for a couple of hours and then head for the pub. So, by about 19.00 we were at the bar.
