My Dad used to sing a song to me in the fifties called 'My special angel' and he led me to believe he made up the words. It was only about 4 years ago that I found out it was an actual song but I still love it.

Does anyone else remember your mum making you a winter pixie hat she called it?  That would have been a woollen scarf sewn halfway down and turned outside in and that would've been your hat all through those cold cold winters of the fifties !

Do you remember the Ritz, Mecca, Palace, dance halls and ballrooms? Where you could go in the afternoons to date some girls. They used to call these "Afternoon Tea Dances" a great source of dating. Of course they have all morphed into money grabbing Bingo!

Did you see Elvis Presley at RAF Chicksands in the 50s?

I listen to Three Counties Radio every day and today Saturday 17/10/2015 a caller called Dave from Luton rang in about Elvis Presley, as the radio presenter was asking "did Elvis ever visit the U.K.?" Anyway, Dave from Luton said he saw Elivis in disguise wearing a black hat and had a "beard". This was at RAF Chicksands in the 50's. Dave has said this time and time again and nobody believes him. I do though. I know it is fact that Elvis went to Scotland whilst changing flights and met Billy Fury there, but I was wondering if anybody among the Silversurfers were at RAF Chicksands at that time. If you were there I would be really happy to know because the presenters just laugh at Dave and I have no doubt that he is telling the truth and want to back him up. Can anybody recall/remember this please. I am very grateful to you all and look forward to hearing that someone did also see Elvis there. Thank you.
