Maybe this needs a new thread?   Defo.   Nothing happening here!   Am very fond of the Oldpark Road ... well, I was 50 years ago.

Oh Cripes.   I really am lost.   It's taken me 15 minutes to work out how to answer this!   I am PC dumb!   Internet stupid.   But let me think.   Maybe we can get a thread going.   Remember the Park cinema?   My mum used to work there.   When my dad was courting her they used to get one of those Cadbury's chocolate tins that made a chocolate drink.  Then they would sit with a spoon and eat it!   Can't do that now.   I tried.   Horrible.   Not chocolate at all ... a mixture of cocoa and powdered milk.   Yuk!!

Many thanks for your reply Jimmy mac.   First house in Heathfield Drive belonged to my aunt Jean and uncle Joe (Allen), unless i'm gettin addresses mixed up.   My Uncle Jim lived a bit further up, and then my Granny (Kernaghan) and uncle Alex and Olive after Granny died.   I always loved the Oldpark, and even as a kid felt totally safe down there.   Things changed with the Troubles of course.   The Park cinema became a favourite spot of mine, and I was still going to it regularly up to my early twenties.
