  1. Happy birthday Gary
    MY memories of summer 1974
    I'd just finished my first year at Warwick Uni
    I was in digs with a lovely couple who really liked "She" - and I bought them the single as a gift before getting the coach home to Norfolk.
    My boyfriend was studying Physics at Hull Uni [not Bob, another physicist]
    I was about to go on holiday - just as Nixon resigned because of Watergate
    My brother used to put a spoon in his mouth like a pipe, and do a brilliant impression of Harold Wilson.

    ...and all YOU were doing was lolling about in your pram, crying for feeds and nappy changes!!

    I feel incredibly OLD this morning!!!!!!!

    Hope you have a fabulous day x
