Subject: RE: BS: Who wears short shorts!!
I was into Polish culture in Bury and Bolton big-time, Dave, in me early twenties. I was engaged to and very nearly married a beautiful Polish girl from Shaw, near Oldham. I used to go to her place from Radcliffe down past Heaton Park then left down Sheepsfoot Lane on my Honda 50 moped. Later on I'd borrow me dad's Vauxhall Viva and pick her up, after which we'd steam up the car windows at Hollingworth Lake or at a quiet spot near Denshaw. Our social life for several years revolved around the Polish clubs in Bury (home territory), Bolton, Rochdale and Oldham. I'm still in touch with my Polish schoolmate Jan from all those years ago. But those Polaks (that's how they all referred to themselves!) knew how to have a bloody good time!
