Yes  The doors were never locked in those days. You just shouted the name up the hall. They shouted back WHAT DO YOU WANT and you shouted ARE YOU COMING OUT TO PLAY.  You never played in anybodyís house.  The Street was for playing on.  Every Street had their own children though Balmoral Street was a bit quiet.  I never played in Balmoral Street.  There was never many children about there.

Dawson.  Were you in the Burnaby Street gang? 

That was a good tale on the other column Jimmy.  Going to the club with your mates when it opened  and coming back legless.  I enjoyed that.

Did you hear Vera Lynn died today.  103 !!!!

No bad thing Jimmy. People get attached to their car and phone.

Looks like the good weather has returned and the caravan parks open tomorrow in NI. Already open in the south. Getting for the time to hitch up the horses and start moving.

Within the last year or so, I have lost many old friends.  They can NEVER be replaced.  Time is no longer on my side.  I can never again make old friends.
 
Treat each person as you would if it was the last time you would meet on earth

One day it will be

Know a very nice neighbour lady. She told me that she has been given her own personal anti virus precaution instructions from the local GP surgery.

She has several medical issues, heart, breathing, etcetera. They sent her a letter.

Even if the anti virus precautions eventually end for everyone else, she has to continue with the precautions for 6 weeks, just to make sure that she isn't infected.

Charlie ( my husband ) got 3 letters that said you or someone you care for is at risk so you must isolate for6 weeks , then another  12 weeks this was to end 3 days ago 26th June , then he got another letter telling him until 31st July , our problem is as it said you or someone your are for and as I'm disabled and he's my carer we don't know who the letter was meant for so we're both isolating that way we get it right
