    We have plenty of cockroaches here in Sydney.
    Some of them look more like a workmans boot scurrying across the floor than an insect.
    They make a bloody mess when you squash em too.

    You just don't seem to see more than a few of the old type travelling fairs. Once upon a time they would turn up at the same sites regular as clockwork, could it be the work of the Stealth and Hafety dictators?

    More than likely grekko, the fairs were just lashed up in no time, they were great fun, I never heard of many accidents although I know that doesn't matter to the dicks that want to keep us safe.

    Yes happy days eh! lindy, The fair is still situated,as always, at the Lister drive end of the park next to Donkeys Hill,and when they move out the site, as always, will resemble a furrowed field but it seems to recover ok. I remember the stall where you had to throw three darts at a board full of playing cards,and if you scored 21 you would win a prize...trouble was the darts strangely enough, were always blunt and more often than not even if you hit the correct cards the dart just bounced back out strangely enough we tended to go back for another go later on
