Working on a lathe, screw cutting to fine dimensions for valves. Wouldn't know how to use a micrometer anymore now.

Similar regarding the micrometer and used to be able gas weld, braze , arc weld, mig tig all that stuff, not done it for 20 yrs now and doubt I’d still be able, particular the gas stuff 

probably still be able use the burning gear though

Making bongs out of stuff stolen from science class at school. 

I once made a bong out of a plastic Cadbury's parrot. There was an unwritten rule that after you'd exhaled you had to squawk in approval.

 the ability to fart the alphabet.

 I used to be able to do that, but an aged cutter means I generally end up shitting myself before I get to "G" if I'm applying too much pressure/force

Being made redundant at 40 mustve been grim

Oooh you little fibber, that wasn’t you! Mind you could have been, I was very stoned.

It also held a lighter in its beak and was perfectly airtight.

I used to have a skill of being mistaken for an anorexic underage lesbian. 

I've piled 5 stone on since then and have the weathered face of someone with 2 kids so I doubt the age thing applies any more. 

Might still pass as a lesbian.

We were lucky and in a happy van....pretty sure C86 was the driver.

 

Met a bluenose in Barbados at Christmas 3 years ago....his lot ended up brawling with our lot in Chester after Wrexham...poor sod was sent down as a result of that in ‘88

Went before the game, it was packed with Wanderers, much classier place than that shithole down the road to sup.

Certainly have, I don't half miss those times even though we were bobbins for ages, it was always a great day out in some backwater town.

Me too Mick...bloody loved those mad days and nights when we were shite, heavily outnumbered but loyal to the core.

 

Football these days is dead in comparison.
