I think Mickbo is older than me and I can vaguely remember getting candy apples at your Dad's house. I even remember buying a parachutist figure. You would fold the parachute up and then throw the action figure up into the air and it would float back down again! I lost a couple of them when they floated down into Patsy Curran's backyard on the corner of Mountpottinger Rd & Chemical St & snowball their dog ripped them to pieces! LOL
 
Frank correct me if I'm wrong but did your Dad have a handcart? The reason I ask is that I used to hang about with your nephew Jim from the mid 1970's to the mid 80's and I kind of remember seeing a photo of possibly your dad beside a handcart in Sheriff St. I do remember however calling into your Mums house with Jim and playing cards with her.. she should have gone professional! A harsh lesson learned there much to my cost!! LOL
 
I also remember your Bobby used to Taxi  back in the 1970's. (I still see him from time to time in the Morning Star pub). I think the darts player Bobby George visted your Mums a couple of times when Bobby was his driver driving him about when he was in Belfast doing exhibitions.
