Cast your mind back J, a hungover Sunday morning (there were a few I know), as punishment for being under the weather Clubby told you to cut up a freshly delivered deer carcase (Winkfield Raod was always a bitch!!).
The image of that day I will always have is you swearing like a trooper, walking toward the canvas covered carcas now replaced by my goodself!
I peered through the holes in the sheet to see you f-ing and blinding whilst swinging a bloody great meat hook thinking to myself, "this could all go horribly wrong!!
As you bent over and lifted the canvas sheet I lept up and yel all sort of profanities at you, your face was one of sheer horror! Hee Hee.
Oh the fun we had running around the fallen tree in the bear reserve, me trying to run whilst laughing my head off and you chasing me with the meat hook. I'm sure that Volvo of yours went home with a wet drivers seat!!!

Hey guys. I couldn't let this one go without a comment. I remember that event so well. That was so funny, although at one point i thought that meat hook was going somewhere where the sun dont shine!! I have never forgotten that. Just one of many many good days at WSP, although maybe J may not think so with a hangover!! Does anyone remember the time when Dodgy was having a bit of a thing about looking after the radio's after one got melted! over the heater in 3 gate hut, (thats another story!). Gunner decided to wind Dodgy up so he brought in an old tv remote control and stuck a stick to the top as an "Aerial". From a distance it looked just like the two way radios. Gunner instructed me to stand by the gate and tell him when Dodgy was close enough to see what he was doing. This i did and just as Dodgy was driving in through the gate Gunner pretended to talk into his "radio" and get frustrated with it. As Dodgy parked his truck he could see Gunner getting annoyed with the RT and then Gunner shouted "F**king radios never work properly" then smashed it on the ground and stamp on it for good measure. Dodgy, well, he went ballistic!!! He ranted at Gunner calling him everything under the sun shouting "Do you know how much those cost!!!" I at this point thought "oh my god, this has gone horribly wrong and Gunner is going to get sacked" Gunner in th mean time was as calm as you like and while Dodgy was going mad Gunner calmly bent down, picked up the remote control, showed it to Dodgy and said "I cant get BBC 2!!" I couldn't stop laughing, and Dodgy, thankfully, saw the funny side and said "Its a wonder i dont get stomach ulcers with you bunch of idiots" I guess you had to be there, i was, and it was one of the funniest things i have ever seen, and those that know Gunner and Dodgy will empathise i'm sure. So many memories, so much fun, so many friends. Damn you Themes!

Hee Hee, nice one Col,
Can you remember the birthday present you got from me off the lion house roof????
Posted: Tue Jul 17, 2007 5:58 pm
I have to confess i cannot remember. Unless it was a rather cold bucket of water! I seem to remember one of those. How about when Gunner hid my bag high up a tree in the Lion reserve!!??

I could be wrong but I seem to recall emptying the drain traps in the lion and tiger dens, chucking in a few extra bits of horse meat into the mix and allowing it all to ferment in the summer sun for the grand birthday dowsing after lock up that evening.
We all had our share of beastings I seem to remember!!!!
I can recall getting through one perticular day on 3 gate without getting covered in some form of slurry and felt quite releaved that the Gonz had bypassed my soaking. I climbed into the back of Gonz's rover with the gate guns and keys and thought "well I'm safe in here", it was at that point that London Zoo pulled open the back door and himself and Gonz absolutely drenched me in all kinds of unpleasentness!!!!
Ahhh, those were the days eh Col??

You have an amazing memory dude!!! As i was reading on it was all flooding back to me. I actually started laughing out loud!!! Big Al, if you remember, went to West Mids Safari Park, with me, to look after the Lions. He left after about 3 years to work for a catologue company picking and stacking loads for deliveries. MT, i do remember now. That stunk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Cheers, Do i still owe you for that?? J, i also remember the mud window incident, i seem to remember the event continuing afterwards you buggers!! How about when bullethead dropped his RT in a water trough and put it on the heater in 3 gate hut to dry out. He forgot it was there and by the time i found it it had completely melted down over the grills, how there wasn't a fire i dont know!! I also remember having to tell Dodgy about it. Bullethead got a right rollocking, as did i! It was also one of the very rare times i got serious and bollocked someone!! How about the time when Ditchy Dollery pee'd on Ben's jumper. Ben told Pete Whitehead who bollocked me and i in turn flipped at ditchy, i have to say, i was quietly laughing about it tho!! Ben was a character wasn't he. I liked him, he was a nice bloke, out there with the fairies but a nice bloke. I also recall Dazzo, his eyebrows met in the middle!! and Big Ray from ex security. God guys, i'm gettin all sentimental. Note to Falkor. London zoo, "zooey", was the nckname for Malcolm, a guy we worked with on the Lion section. So called because he use to work at London zoo, clever eh!! If you hadn't guessed everyone who worked at WSP had a nickname. MT gave me mine, "Clubby". i have been known as that for 20 years now, it has followed me everywhere and i am pretty proud of it now, cheers MT. But can you remember the reason behind it guys?. I can.

Right again dude. I have a shit memory eh! I remember that now you have said it! I got bollocked for it too, and i bollocked ditchy so we all got it in the end. I do remember him bein a bit of a pain! I wish Gonzo was on here to give his pennies worth, that would make good reading eh!

Hee Hee, its good readin all these posts as the days at the park come flooding back!!!
Loads of giggles had by all!!
Clubs can you remember the time a group of us were sat on 3 gate havin our dinner when Ben (known as Rocky back then, owing to the medicated rocking from side to side he did!!) was tellin us about all the times that he had tried to self harm???
On a serious note the guy had a few issues but man the stories he came up with were priceless!
Then there was the time that some nast devious person put a spider into someones tobacco tin!! Any ideas who????? Hee Hee
Posted: Sat Jul 21, 2007 7:46 pm
Hmmmm, i thought i had left that one in the past!!! I hate spiders with a passion and boy did you lot know it!!! Remember when Big Al brought the skin of a tarantula in, i didn't stop running till i reached Maidenhead i think!!!! Still all good memories even if it was traumatic at the time. Rocky was a good lad. I remember him telling us his girlfriend was about 45 years old although nobody ever met her. Didn't he drive a beat up morris minor? Suited him really. I also remember the time when we had the young Cheetah in quarantine in the first corner pen. She was only 6 months old and really nervous. She would spend a lot of time calling for her mother with a high pitched whistle. There was a load of us cleaning out the house when Ben walked in and looked in on the Cheetah who was whistling and he put his fingers in his mouth and gave her a full volume wolf whistle, closely followed by everyone else around him to shout out "BEN"!!!! He jumped and looked like he had shit himself. He said "What?" and we bollocked him for scaring the poor cat. He didn't think sometimes eh!
