Things you don't see anymore

Recommended Posts

We did not even have a TV when the priest came so radio went off.

Friday was the best night!!!Get into the household before DAD spends it ALL in the PUB or MUM goes into corner shop paying off the TAB she ran up for the weeks food.Not forgetting the BETTING SHOP RUNNER!Grans lived round Gerards Bridge and i'm sure FATHER RILEY got a good pay from his parishioners!

No betting shops then non sibi, I think you mean the illegal bookies' runners which you do not see these days.

I was wondering with the title. Do changes have a timescale?

Under what issues do things disappear.Why are they not just personal to one person but end up global issues.

We like something then does some jobsworth decide to get rid.

Simple little things like who got rid of using the newspaper on the nail in the toilet.

Getting rid of the penny toilet boxes on the door.

blackjacks,sherbert dabs,licorice sticks.Clothes styles.DID YOU WANT TO GET RID OF YOUR KIPPER TIE LADS?.Did you gals really want to wear TIGHTS? instead of SUSSIES?

But yet one thing stays QUEUES! Surely when we went into the EU we should have followed what the Germans did.

SEE WE CAN EVEN GET BREXIT IN HERE! 

SO IF WE CAN BE LIKE LEMMINGS WHY ARGUE OVER THAT DAMN WORD?
