  1. The noisy bikers musta knaan the chopper was tekking picta's!!..nae sign o thim or tha smoke screens....!
  2. ...hmmm...mebe lukking at it again,it might be THE DUN COO pub..a while since a been up that way!..when a was a bairn,tha was aboot 20-odd pubs and clubs up Bedltn main street,and a canna ivvor mind o any drunkards coming oot them and causing bother..they were mostly aal pitmen,oot ti wet tha dusty throats!! ..
  3. That little square opposite the La Torre Restaraunt..[Black Bull Pub ti me!!..unless aam mistaken!] is Hollymoont Square where a was browt up from aged 3 yrs till a got married in 1967.See hoo far it is stryght doon the Bedltn Bank and we were inti the woods..a kids magic haven!![in the very 1950's..not lang after the war ended].
  4. Heh heh Alan,great stuff isn't it,afore Wor Deano went ti Norfolk last March,he lived with us,and one day he came through inti the sitting room showing me his new phone wi at Nav on,and it was accurate to two Meres!He waaked across wor floor,two steps and it showed his position aside the telly..scary! We dinna gaan up thi Black Path ti thi top..it wud kill me! we gaan ti the second seat ,have a blaa,luk for Squirrels,and come bak doon..we saw Pete and his Wife one day..we just stopped ti taak ti these two strangers...and it turned oot ti be Pete!Strange co-incidence!
  5. Happy Borthdi Cl.. late as ever! Hope ye had a nice yin! Also hope ye are both keepin weel! Luv frae HPW and C xx
  6. Beware when walking down or up, the " Black Path",which leads from the car park at the bottom of the Furnace Bank,up to the Beattie Road,Hollymount Terrace area. It is being frequented by the same idiotic set of Wimpy Snowflake "Off Road" bikers,who have no consideration at all for the environment,nor the wildlife,nor those of us who just want a nice quiet walk up through the woods to excercise,and to watch for wildlife. They have removed the Baffles from the exhausts of their bikes,to sound "cool",and they can be heard from over a mile away,as the noise echoes through the wooded valley. The "Amusing" part is,the bikes are TWO-STROKE machines,which depend upon the back -pressure of the Exhaust system,to ensure smooth and efficient operation,and the removal of the baffles is the reason why they are riding by, constantly revving a dying engine as they slow down to get past..ironically,they seem to be polite as they go past and give a nod to us for going out of our way onto the grassy bank,to allow them to pass! I am not a killjoy,and enjoy riding my bike,when the time comes that I might be allowed to get out again,but these kids,are blatantly breaking every motoring and lockdown law in the book...No number plates,no tax,probably no Insurance or Mot,excessive noise,and smoke pollution,riding on prohibited pedestrian walkways, a danger to the public,riding a motorcucle "Two-up",where there is no provision for a pillion passenger..[pillion riding with both legs splayed out...no footrests]..etc etc! I have made my mind up that if I witness one go out of control and end up in the river,I will carry on walking with my terrified Wife,who has been so scared of these people running into her Mobility scooter,that she doesn't want to go back..but I am adamant that we have the right to be there,THEY DON'T!. The Police force are stretched now,so it isn't going to prevent these people ,cos they know they can get away with it. So,all I am saying is,watch how you go if you decide to take excercise down there!!
  7. AND IT HAS!..THIS IS JUST THE START!! A friend of mine saw aboot 6000 people waakin alang the sea front between Whitley Bay and Tynemooth on Sunday..nae social distancing..lots of groups of young'uns of between six ti twenty in number. They are literally killing people as if they put a gun or knife to the innocent folks who are obeying the law. Folk are calling the Govt,aam not politically motivated at aal but it's common sense..it's NOT the Govt,it is the rebels and the ignorant among us,if there was a deep pit in the pavement,and ye said ti them divvent step inti that hole,wad they disobey and faal inti the hole.? Rant owa!! [but Justified aa think!] Apart from aal that,a hope we aal have a better year than we had last yeor!!

  11. On reflection, maybe I read the OP wrong, he is referring to a house which used to be a shop.. Apologies for misinformation.
  12. A bit late as usual, but I think the shop referrred to, is the Deli, which was Dave the Butchers, from as far back as 1970,which was the year I moved into West Terrace, a few yards away. Dave spent every minute of his free time, including his Wednesday afternoons off, building up the upper floor above the shop, converting it into a bigger flat with front and rear huge dormer windows. He then built up the garage and shop rear extension, over a couple of years or more. He told me he was saving around £9,000 by doing the work himself. He did all the loft conversion to building standards, and the Building Inspectors never had cause to instruct any remedial or retro alterations, they were satisfied at every stage. Dave lost his Wife Sylvia after a long period of illness, some time ago. Hope I am not too late to have been of any help.
  13. Too true Alan!That's the way it was before PC came alang...a got clipped and belted any amoont o times,AND caned at schyuul,for piddly little things like stepping on the Schyuul grass in winter ,when it was oot o boonds,ti get wa baal...a dinna think one foot on the edge of the grass was gaana destroy the field..ye canna kill the sod off wi weedkiller nivvor mind puttin one foot on the bugga!!...naa...it was wa perverted Paedo Heedmaster hoo used ti not just cane ye,but actually terrorised ye for ten minutes before actually thrashing ya fingers wi he's cane.Aye...THAT was another Loathe!! ...a bit late..pity wi didnae hae this site in them days eh?!!
