No. No. Dawson.  Iíll sit with you.  COYB.   Will you call for me, Dawson?  Iíve no car. 
Thanks Jimmy.  We could be married next year.
Freda, the final is at Windsor Park. Youíd need to bring plenty of money with you so that we can celebrate the wee blues winning.

Na.  Iíve changed my mind.  Iím too young to get married.

Iíll not need a limo, Dawson.  I get my new car tomorrow BUT I donít fancy a football match.  Weíll go to the pantomime instead.  Youíll not mind missing the match.

Good job JJ.  Thank you very much. 

I got my new car today.  Finally got out for some shopping.  What a joy to go where you want.  We didnt run out of anything.  I got bread and milk when I was out with someone.  I didnt have to ask anybody for anything except for a lift to Church, but that was not a problem.  We had plenty of everything.  Didnít really miss the car.  I was two weeks without it.  If I hadnít needed things for CHRISTmas I could have gone another two weeks.  Weíre so pampered these days

Youíre my hero, Jimmy. 
The cars get bigger and the mobile phones get more sophisticated.  Do I need a mobile phone?  No.  Not really.  Do I need a car?   Well Iím not getting any younger.  I think I need a car.  Our friends from the Grosvenor Road had neither car nor mobile phone.  I think they would laugh at people walking about talking on the phone.  What is so urgent? 
Do you think Dawson has booked the pantomime yet, Jimmy?
OH YES HE HAS. 
OH NO HE HASNíT

Itís only the other day we spoke about 1 million people reading this forum.  It is now up to one and a half million reads and 883 pages.  Can you believe it?  It all started with a simple question:-

Anyone out there originally from Excise Street and the Grosvenor Road and would anyone have any photos.

Incredible.

Jimmy, always look behind you regularly when you're walking,... these days the main and very common danger to pedestrians seems to be loons who ride bicycles illegally on the pavements,... and at full speed,... and they never seem to use a bell or any other kind of audible warning. !

One of my neighbours can walk, but with difficulty, she uses an electrically powered disabled buggy, that can be used on the pavement, and also,... I think ?,... on the roads !,... battery operated and rechargeable,... she uses it to go shopping at quite a distance, and I was  amazed when she told me that it has a range of 30 miles or similar !,... it goes quite fast as well.

Freda maybe you and dawson could be in the pantomime. You could be Cinderella and he could go to ballymena on the train to try on the shoe or better still you could drive up to him in your new car.

I like your thinking, Jimmy.  He could come down in the train with the shoe and while I try it on there are a few jobs he could do before he gets the train back up again.

Don't forget Freda old dawson is a bit past it. He would probably need some oxygen to bend down and try on the shoe.

Bending down is easy, Jimmy.  Getting up again is the problem.  Iíll put the shoe on myself while he gets on with the chores.  He may have to stay a few days or I could give him respiration.  Either way weíll get to know each other better.  Oh.  Iím  beginning to feel heís my Prince Charming already.  Iím starting to pack a few things in case he whisks me off to his castle in Portugal.
