Ha ! When the pic first came up I could only see the top of it and was wondering which was the man and which the woman.
My goodness, now there's a comment that takes me back to the heady days of my youth. I'd just turned 19 in that photo and at that time having long hair carried a bit of a stigma and us long haired yobbos copped much stick for having lengthy locks, mostly from boring old gits but also from some of our own peers.

'Get yer 'air cut' and 'coupla years in the army would do you the world of good' were typical comments we had to bear.

These days it seems length of hair no longer defines gender which I think is a good thing and long haired males barely raise an eyebrow. Nowt like a bit of androgyny to get folk guessing ;)

Random pic of the evening # 1:

Random Pic of the night Upstairs after hours at The Witchdoctor dance hall Catford 1969, the young lady whose name escapes me from the Kent village of Downe, Barry, also from Downe, and Chris Baine from Hazelbank Road. After the masses had left for home we drank and smoked til the early hours and sometimes held seances where we would occasionally speak to Napoleonic soldiers. Or so we thought.

Intriguing! Did they ever have anything interesting to say? :fool:
Becky, I can't remember, twas a long time ago but I didn't take it seriously then and I don't take it seriously now.

I do remember the glass moved about and spelled words out but dead spirits? Pull the other one, lol

Collective consciousness perhaps. Who knows?
