This memoir is about people, places, things and events I once knew. It might not always be about Yorkshire, nor entirely based on memories, but most of it is.
I rarely post in chronological sequence. A piece set in the
nineteen-seventies might be followed by one about the nineteen-fifties.
This page therefore lists and links all posts roughly in period and date order,
although some may span more than one period.
Some items simply attempt to
remember people and experiences, others try to give things a humorous
slant, and some are of the “look how the world has changed” kind. Among my favourites are Dad’s Thursday Helper and M Dunham Are Crap which cover some of my earliest times and Uncle Jimmy which is
more journalistic. I enjoyed researching and writing The Exorcist which I hope is at least mildly humorous. Lookin’ for a ‘Feet’ is more polemical. So far there are couple of stories which, although fictional, are
based on real-life situations, such as A Silly Christmas Love Story. Probably none of my posts are really
‘finished’ – they never are. As I said at the beginning, you think you are going to be the next Alan Bennett but soon realise you’re no
better than Tony.
