  1. Yesterday
  2. Miss Smail played the organ at our wedding in St Cuthbert's church in 1962, and I do believe she was the shop owner on the corner of Hollymount Square, I think there were two sisters in the shop. My wife would tell me of Ganny Smail's chasing her and friend Maureen while nicking apples from her garden! I'm SURE HPW would confirm this.
  3. CL - It's just my strange humour = Michael Cain supposed quote - NOT a lot of people know that and he was in Zulu🙃 = my comment = a lot of people know that 😊
  4. Barry Swarbrick (No 15 in the photo) commented - '13 looks like David mould'
  5. I have no idea who the Miss Smail would have been ( I have attended St. Cuthbert's on a number of occasions = when relatives have been married in the church) but could she have been the lady from Smail's shop on the entrance to Hollymount Square?
  6. I'm sure you did know better, Vic. It's just that our fingers are less nimble with old age and I believe that N and W are next to each other on a Canadian computer keyboard.
  7. Haven't heard of her, Maggie. Why was her taste in music original?
  8. I didn't! Had to google it but not sorry I did. What a battle --- and even a bit of Swedish involvment!
  9. We would be very happy to welcome you on board, Maggie! Of course, it's the taking part that's important (as Mr Hemming was so keen on reminding us!)so if you don't want to post your answers it's OK. Challenge the OH over a glass of wine or get the neighbours in for a bit of a natter. There is more than one way to skin this particular cat. The main thing is to get the grey cells out for an airing once a week. Enjoy it!
