Love looking at these, and remembering. Will try and show some as and when.

Nice find, Herc!

I like the idea of Switzerland being the "playground of Europe" . Maybe for investment bankers and tax evaders. :D The airline doesn't exist anymore. The grounding happened 25 years ago. It was our equivalent to the end of The Lehman Brothers. They even made a film about it.
I only swam in a mountain lake once during a school excursion about 30 years ago. It was so freezing my family jewels still haven't recovered from this event.

But those kiddies look so happy and warm under that blazing sun.

And how are your nuts, these days - have they dropped back down again yet?

The days of innocence, before the Yanks hijacked perfectly good English words, and I used to love Spangles - I remember them in so many other flavours too, such as Old English, mint, and you could get tubes of just one flavour.

Sadly, all gone. Those sweets, and perfectly good words.

You do know its no longer "the love that dare not speak its name," right?
