Sounds as though it has pissed on your parade in one way or another all through your life.

Barnes A 12 OR Col B 12. Cannot remember. However in my rugby draw I do have a pair of rugby socks complete with name-tag etc. Actually played here at the highest level until I became 40. ( rugby is not that well known here )

Never used them for lottery - although seems a good idea and yes I've still got towels with name house and number on from MaB inked over with MaA57...

1:12 and Col A 20. Ditto the towels and flannels (with hanging loops holding on for grim death. Cheers, Mum!). And I can remember my matriculation number from university. It's the only way I can work out which year I graduated (add 4 to the first two numbers which represent the year you began). How tortuous is that!

I was Peele B 16 and then Maine A 37. If you add 16 and 37 you get 53 which has absolutely sod all to do with anything...

I suppose 'In front of the computer' must be more scenic than 'Norf Landahn'

I was Thornton B 45. Just one number up, and a different house, but astoundingly close. Who would have thought it? A revelation.

I was also Thornton A 49. Apparently matron chose new numbers, where possible, that could be easily modified from the originals...hence why 45 became 49 with the mere dash of a permanent marker.
Thornton 85-92
