  1. Right you old lot, in my possibly wonky memory Judy or Judith Frith ran the horse farm on Burrows (Burrough's?) Lane in the 50/60's. Red Rocks went up the side of the horse farm to where the hospital was. Please tell me I'm not out of my mind in what I remember.
  2. Monday no matter what the weather, was washing day. With the washer and mangle. If it was fine, out on the line (ooh, that rhymed), if not on the rack which was on a pulley down from the ceiling in front of the fire. Ceilings must have been higher in those days! Tuesday was ironing the lot. Even underwear. Sigh.
  3. There was a red barn at Ormskirk where they held dances, Jeff.
  4. Witches' cats are black, Donks. I like the heraldic idea Hoping someone tracks down the origin!
  5. Only pea picking we did was on our bellies trying not to be seen. I'm still addicted to fresh peas but I grow my own now
  6. LOL you two! In those days I was shy. Now I'd grab their spade and whack them around the head with it. If I didn't fall over when I dropped my cane. Actually - nowadays, I would LOVE it except it would be a bit perverted whistling at an old women.
  7. That's because we learned how to deal with them, icehead
  8. I had a friend Susan Costello lived in Sutton - any relation?
  9. I thought rationing ended later - I can remember my dad getting really upset with my sister because we were only allowed one pound of butter a week and she was slathering it on a doorstopper. Her (quite reasonable) rationale was that because the bread was thicker she should be able to use the equivalent of the butter for several small slices
  10. Worked 14 hours a day on the farm horses, chickens, pigs, pigeons.
  11. Yes Phyll, after he came home! (btw miss you on chat)
  12. In my house there is a door That people can go through. There's Mom, and Dad, and all their friends And Dog and Big Cat, too. I wanted oh so very much I tried and tried and tried To go with them so I could see What took them all outside. One night I got my chance - someone Was careless with the door. I slipped right past and there I was! A whole world to explore. Off I went - the smells! The sounds! I wandered in the dark. But soon my paws were getting cold A whuff, a hoot, a bark. I must admit I lost it then I ran and went to ground. The night was cold, I wasn't home And monsters all around. The sun came up but monsters too I couldn't move a paw. I stayed well hid, though people called I'd been out there before. Then it started getting dark. More hunger, cold, alarms. I heard Mom call - I took a run And leapt right in her arms. So now I'm home, warm, watered, fed And lying on Mom's lap. You can KEEP the great outdoors! I think I'll take a nap.
  13. COWLEY - Can I get a copy of that Saints programme? My dad is listed as a Director on it one of the things nice to have. Especially if you went (willing or not) to most Saints games throughout your youth!!
  14. Beautiful. Sad to see the old buildings disappear.
  15. Wherever Dr Who decided to visit, silly.
