Weirdo,  did the Taylors live near you on the Woodstock?  Remember Michael,Billy,Chris,Mark.  Their dad had a furniture shop on the Ormeau Road.  Heard they went to Bangor.

Weirdo,  1972?
That was good going.  Most never made it past August '71.  i remember the  Gusties school roll call in September '71- as the teacher called out a name the class would shout out in response   " Twinbrook , Flying Horse, Killough , Model Farm "  etc .  it seemed like half the school moved over the summer.

Marty,  last met Gerard Braiden 10 years ago at a funeral.  Regrettably lost contact since.
Talking of drink, as you do,  we used to buy scrumpy in a wee off license down London Street/Road for 10p in new money,  in the days before decimalisation it was less than 2 shillings.

Anyone remember Meli's chippy on Roseberry Road?  Amongst the very best chips available anywhere on the planet !  I seem to recall a Meli's in Cromac Square also.
