OT The Ashes

The last time England won the Ashes...........

Kylie and Jason had just got married on Neighbours

That was 19 years ago.

Whats your memories of those halcyon days driving
around in your Landy trying to listen to a ball by ball
account on Radio 4 or the BBC World Series? Or
god forbid, are you the result of a celebratory bonk
by your parents!!

Re: OT The Ashes

Or possibly that you don't give a toss now and didn't 19 years ago?
Sometimes I think I'm the only person in Australia who has no interest in
sport!

Err... 1984? I'd have been a spotty 4th former then.

I didn't give a flying wossname then, either (about Jason and Kylie or
some scorched bit of cricket stump).

You could only listen to commentary on the radio or read about it in
the press - and that's were most of us will be back to next year. That's
progress!!

I was 32, working in Brigg, Lincs (it was S Humberside then, I think) -
hello David Bell!

Riding either a Guzzi V50, a Yam 350 YPVS or XT350 (not sure - bike years
are a bit hazy). One small daughter (graduated this year!). Another one
not far off. Never had a Landy - spent all my time dodging the farmers'
Land Rovers on the Lincs lanes. Quite fancied one - at some point.

Several things about to happen in the next 10 years that I'm glad I didn't
know about then. Wish I hadn't started thinking about this.
