One of our old Barber Shops called IVANS used to sell Dildos and Vibrators. Handwritten sign in the window;

"12 Inch Black Mamba"

A very, very true story.

The epitomé of Reg's reference to 'something for the weekend, Sir?'

I'm not sure though, it was either a roaring success or a non starter. The same sign was in the window from when we moved there and was definitely still there about a year ago (about 27 years). Pretty certain it was there before us too but time has perished the advert for sex toys; likely the state of which the Black Mamba is in too.

I've not been to a barber or hairdresser in many a year but this has jogged my memory of my younger days. School mates and I would go together after school to get our haircuts. If we were skint we'd go to Brian's on Ferndale rd as he was cheap but not very good. I went there twice I think when I'd spend the extra money my mum had given me on fags or sweets. Wayne's bottom of Vic hill or Ian's on commercial rd were the more regular ones where we'd spend our time giggling at each other in the mirror as we waited our turn.

If you knew some of the characters in my town...you'd have no surprise. Class doesn't tend to drip off people in a North Mids (Derbys/Notts border) town. Openly frank and honest? Buckets of that.

Still, minus barbers selling sex toys (not on the side but visibly on the side) the story is similar up and down the country; every town has it's "characters"

Yes very true but sadly diminishing with the politically correct society we're all part of

Oh there are still characters around there. Seem to reproduce at a rate of knots too. Sometimes the diminishing element isn't a bad thing but I do get your point.

I'm a bit skint, but if you all chuck in a few quid to the charity she's doing the run for, I'll let Fred Elliot's daughter cut my hair.

Or axs after losing a bet that time.

Lopped all my hair off twice. The Tef was responsible both times. Cunts.
