HI LIZ, WE HAD LOVELY TIME AT THE MEET, EVERYONE IS SO FRIENDLY, MOST OF THEM USED TO COME TO OUR MEETS.

IT'S GREAT THAT MARGARET WAS ABLE TO GIVE YOU SOME INFO ON YOUR OLD STREET, THERE IS ALWAYS SOMEONE ON THE FORUM WILLING TO HELP. O0

YOU GAVE ME A LAUGH ABOUT GETTING ROLLED DOWN THE STREET IN A TIRE :D WE COULD STAY OUTSIDE ALL DAY PLAYING GAMES OR SWINGING ON THE LAMP. BETWEEN YOU, JILLY AND MYSELF 1945 WAS A GOOD YEAR :D

THIS WAS A QUICK LOOK IN, MY TUMMY IS TELLING ME IT'S DINNER TIME, SEE YOU LATER   *

RUBY,   I'M GLAD YOUSE HAD A NICE TIME AND YOU REMEMBER  THE PEOPLE FROM  OUR MEETS.    HAS THE INSIDES CHANGED FROM OUR MEETS, WHERE YOU SAT ALONG THE LONG  BENCH AGAINST THE WALL, ARE THERE MANY PEOPLE GO TO IT.   IT MUST HAVE  BEEN A BIG TIRE AND I MUST HAVE BEEN VERY LITTLE  TO  GET INSIDE ONE.  THE STRANGE THING IS , SOMETIMES I THINK I CAN REMEMBER  WHAT IT WAS LIKE?.   COULD YOU IMAGINE  LETTING YOUR KID DO THAT TODAY, YOU'D HAVE A FIT HA.   THE LAMP WAS ANOTHER ONE,  GETTING PUSHED  AND NEARLY ENDING UP  GETTING A SPLIT HEAD HA.   YOU'RE RIGHT,  1945 MUST HAVE HAD SOMETHING IN THE WATER.  ANYWAY I SEE THE GRASS OUTSIDE IS GETTING A GOOD WATERING.    HOPE THE REST OF YOUR DAY GOES WELL.   TAKE CARE.  LIZ  XXXXXXXXXXX

HI James, thanks for the videos, I remember seeing the one of the women talking about the street games and " I Am Belfast "  I have a peery & whip that my sister  brought to Canada years ago, but it could never beat the ones we used. :D  I loved the videos of Belfast, I hoped to see someone I knew because there were so many people shopping. :) Thanks again :-* :-*
