Make the most of him Dave, they grow up so quickly . Before you know it, he'll be asking to borrow Grandad's car.
The years have been good to me, it was the weekends that did the damage.

Hi all  :wave:

We received some good news this evening :hmmm:

Mother and baby will be leaving hospital in the morning  :claphappy:  :claphappy:

I am so proud of the pair of them that they have done so well to get this far so quickly
Considering what my daughter went through during her pregnancy it is nothing short of a miracle  :admiration:

 :beers:

Congratulations from me too, and out of interest what Hospital were they in?

When my son was born in Chorley Hospital in 1978, there was a problem as the afterbirth was stuck, and my wife (and baby) had to be rushed by Ambulance to Preston Hospital.
It was Xmas Day so there wasn't much traffic around and I couldn't keep up with the Ambulance in the car I was following in as it sped through red traffic lights, and I had to stop a policeman to ask the way to Sharoe Green Hospital as I had no idea where it then was.
The Hospital were great (performing the necessary emergency operation immediately) and mother & son were released (back to Chorley Hospital) the next day, and the day after (December 27th) were allowed home.

Wife and son even got their pictures in the paper (Lancashire Evening Post) because it was a Xmas Day birth, and were given a silver spoon by the Hospital as a momento - bet that wouldn't happen now!.

That is great news Dave  :thumbsup:

I have no doubt Alfie will become one of the most photographed babies over the next few months  :D

I hope you all can settle down to a more relaxing life  ;)

cheers John.

Can you be accused of going off-topic in the Happy Thread? - but your mention of Wigan brought back memories of my early youth.

Wigan FC were then playing teams like Chorley in the Lancashire Combination,
and Billy Boston of Rugby League fame was better known than any Wigan footballer.
Used to dance the night away in Wigan Casino (which no longer exists), and I passed my Driving Test in Wigan in a new Triumph Herald.
Had an Aunty who lived in Standish, and I don't know if they still exist, but one of my young mates was a Tony Cassinelli who started the "Cassinellis" Restaurant Chain. Tony, myself, and 2 other local lads hired a brand new Ford Corsair from "Williams of Wigan" and drove it to the Costa Brava and back for our Summer Holidays.
When I lived in Duxbury, Chorley one of our neighbours was a Mr Miller who had a large Motorcycle and used car dealership in Wigan and my father and I bought a few cars from him including an Austin A40 (which I also drove to Spain with some different mates this time), and afterwards both my father and I bought a Sunbeam Rapier each off Mr Miller.
Those were happy days so I am not really going off topic making this reply in the Happy Thread am I?

I hate to burst your bubble Terry but all the places you mention above have gone  :thumbsdown:
I remember staring at the fine collection of motorbikes in Millers longing for the day I would be old enough to ride one  :drool:

You probably wouldn't recognise the town these days  :no:
