Do people still have


This is a thread where we find out if people still have a thing

My first one is, do people still have these kinds of washing lines?


My neighbours do. I have seen them eye my Minky with jealousy.


I do, thanks for asking.


called a whirligig mate


had one in a shared house circa 2011. I think it’s still there


Was it housed in a larger pipe that was set into some concrete?


We used to have one and the hole in the ground could also be used for the swingball as well.




Yes. Don’t use it to dry clothes though, it’s for the bird feeder/squirrel feeder and actual squirrel feeder to hang on.

Paul and Stevie use it as a climbing frame.


Swingball is a good example for something like a “Things that are better in theory than in practice” thread that you’re welcome to start if you like.


hmm i think the larger pipe was just buried in the earth


Does anyone on here still have and use a VHS player?


Not me Spunky!


Yes, but no.


We still have one but it is banished to the loft. I would have to prize it out of my wife’s dead cold fingers before I could sew it into a mattress that I would then fly tip.


Of course not. You’re a modern guy, Ant.


I was thinking about this the other day in relation to this song:

I suspect that the xx don’t actually have a VHS player


I’m not having your sloppy seconds.


My Mum does.
