What I'd like to know is what was my Dad's van doing parked behind the car with the canoe, the bra and the topless woman.  I hope it wasn't my mum in the car with that horrible man?  :o

"This policeman has been following a nervous suspect for three months. The officer is now 300 miles from home."

So that's what GruB tells Mrs. GruB when he's out racking up his Bikejournal count! :thumbsup:

That's about 100 miles a month. Even I could do that!

I read that Ladybird book in school!  I remember the pictures, though I think the text may have been different.  Possibly a revised edition.... :D

I got sent them in an email.  Help yourselves for reposting / sending on.  AFAIK they're a free-for-all.

(I 'bucketed them because I couldn't link to the Winzip file I was sent.)

We had that book at home. It was part of the 'People at Work' series. There were similar books about firemen.

I think the original text started with 'You have often seen a policeman'...

Other nostalgic memories regarding that book: (c1964)

There was a Tardis.
Where is the Tardis?
I WANT THE TARDIS!!!!

I was reading that book when my Dad told me some people, in countries where there were few books, had to read upside-down, and that it was easy to read books upside-down.

He was right! I have been able to read upside down rather easily ever since...
