great wheels for a guider. I remember some
having a set of bigger wheels on the back
of the guider.  :)

Don't mistake my silence for ignorance, my calmness for acceptance, or my kindness  for weakness.

chi. i remember going home and leavin the pram and the child  outside the shop a few times. :) :)

You must have been on overload,today they'd have
child services knocking at your door :-\ :-*
 
Do you remember there was a mother and young son
from Ladbrooke Dr visiting Dublin and they recognized
a child who had been kidnapped from Belfast, that must
have been mid 50"s :)

Don't mistake my silence for ignorance, my calmness for acceptance, or my kindness  for weakness.

I posted this wee poem 5 years ago next May.  Alas I was told this evening that Albert Haslett has passed away and his funeral service will  be held in St. Stephen's Church on Millfield at 10a.m. Saturday morning.

Albert was laid to rest this morning. I had the privilege of knowing him. A great poet, a brilliant storyteller and a great memory recall of times gone by. A true Son of the Shankill. Rest easy old friend.
Justice for the Massacred of La Mon and other atrocities.  The TRUTH will set them FREE.
Justice for the RUC and British Army. Support Soldier F
