  1. THERE Was Tonks the Barber, Opposite near enough was Smiths Chippy, But a little higher up was a House ,come shop. i think it was a Mrs Hill that lived there, And if she didn't have what you wanted. you can bet the next time that you went in ,she would have it. I am now talking The War Years .when as a kid i lived in Resevoir St, next door but two to The Big House.

When i visit the Cemetery i feel depressed ,not only for the obvious reason but for the class distinction that still exist even after death, it goes without saying that we all respect our loved ones no longer with us,without going to the extremes which it seems is now allowed, what happened to ruling ,,, Two feet only in front of head stone,i think the graves should be like military graves, with all stones a standard size ,if it was good enough for heroes then it should be good enough for us,,,with respect some go over the top. many cant afford the lavish monuments that tower either side of their love ones, May all the souls R,I,P,

    Gat Guns

    do you remember the gun that you used a roll of paper and the bang was created with compressed air. after each shot the roll would wind down to the next position
