Riding big bikes with one leg under the cross bar or with one peddaling and one steering."Shkirtawns" (I think MM spelt it right) in you oxter and other warm and sensitive spots - little red ones and big off white sheep ticks. Eiderdown quilts. Ice on the inside of the window pane in the morning. Bill Haley kiss curls. Darned soks and chillblains. Earwigs ("dearg go geel"). Sneeze - Dia linn. Nightly rosary. Shiny hard Jeyes toilet paper. Carbolic soap. Ralph McTell's 'Streets of London'. Parafin lamps. Saturday morning purges to ensure regularity. Washing boards and Monday morning washing. Shoe lasts and half soles. Kilcourse from Milebush using a goose to clean his chimney. Two politicians fighting - one labelling and one labelled a maggot. Made the national news. Stewed rubarb. Slices of cooking apples dipped in white sugar. Bacon and cabbage. The smell of cabbage water. Kerr Pink potatoes. Curly kale. Haircuts in the kichen. Silvermints. The jingle kimberley micado and cocoa creams. Dear Frankie and the Frank Sinatra songs. The Kennedy's of Castleross. The Clitheroe Kid on BBC on Sundays. 99's. Thin brown hot 6 sided lozenges and cats eggs. Jerkins. Winkle pickers. Teddy Boys, Mods and Rockers. The 'Kerelim' navy from down near Pontoon clearing the streets. Italian tourists brought to Mayo for 'the shooting' shooting song birds and a bullock that unwisely made a noise in a thicket while they were around.
