THIS WEEK CAT STEVENS
My best friend and I
were sitting in the cinema. Halfway through the film my friend suddenly screamed: "
Look, its HIM its Roger Daltrey!" With that she leaped over the
seats to get his autograph, to the amusement of the entire audience. Later, in the
daylight, she showed me her scrap of paper bearing her pop idols signature. All that
was written was the name Brian Peek. It is not every day that your best friend asks your
only brother for his autograph.
Linda Peek, Fulham,
CAT: Someone asked
me for my autograph once, but was very disgrunted when she discovered I wasnt Bing
Crosby. Mistakes go so far.
Two girls met in the
street as I passed by, " I do like your dress" said one. " Its my
thirteen year old sisters," confessed the other, " but it makes a fab mini-dress
Ive heard of things
being handed down in families, but never UP.
CAT: I think
its a great idea. I tried borrowing my little cousins clothes but I dont
think nappies suit me.
Is he a her?:
My grandfather was
staying with us when he spotted the long haired teenager next door, dresses in the usual
sweaters and jeans. " If that was my son Id make him get his hair cut," he
grumbled. I had difficulty convincing him that it wasnt a boy but a girl.
Ann Street, Welling,
CAT: Kind of
prehistoric. Its often happened to me, with disastrous effects. People used to have long
hair. I think a short neck is unsightly. Girls with short hair add to the confusion.
- I need some money to buy a dress to show off
at a party.

cos Im not very crafty.
- Believe me, trend , youre my last
- I really need that money

- And that aint very funny,

hope your little sister doesnt have the same trouble, but dont suggest
The other day I went to my friends house
and met Dave Dee, Dozy, Becky, Mick, and Tich. My friend and I prepared them a meal and
spent the afternoon with them. We thought they were very good-looking and great fun. In
fact, they were just like their namesakes. You see these were five tiny Yorkshire terrier
J. Williams, Newport, Monouthshire.
CAT: We didnt think Dave, Dee,
etc.. were as hairy as all that.
Figure hugging magazine:
If there is one thing I hate, its
shopping for clothes. I see a nice mod mini skirt, I try it on, it fits, I glance at the
price tag and say good bye skirt. If theres one thing I havent got, its
a lot of money.
Ill see a pair of mod bell
bottoms. I cautiously examine the price tag. Theyre cheap, I grap them, try them on
and guess what? They dont fit. " Sorry luv, no other sizes" says
the shop assistant. Im fed up.
Then when reading my favorite magazine,
Trend, I see some super hipsters, very mod and at a modest price. I send away for them
and wow! They look wonderful and fit perfectly. I am now completely hooked on Trend
Boutique Offer. So please, Trend, Keep coming.
Linda Nixon, Carlisle, Cumberland.
CAT: I dont think the mini
quite suits me, but I go for the hipsters.
As I stepped off the bus, the wind blew my
waist length hair across my face and the conductor said: Havent I seen you on a
Thinking he had seen me riding my bay pony
I replied: " No, a brown one." I was nearly home before I realized he was
referring to Lady Godiva.

CAT: Why not live it up to the tog,
and take your horse instead of going by bus? Mind you, I dont suggest you go into it
