    Musing on "Making ends meet"......

    Back in the early sixties we didn't have a phone, but my elder brother (23 years older than me) had got married and got his own house with phone. My parents used to give me a few pennies to go to the nearest phone box to ring him before going round to visit. I was scared stiff of being shut in one of the old phone boxes (the doors were really heavy) so I used to hang around out of sight then go home and say nobody answered. I still have this phobia about going in phone boxes. Even as an adult (before mobile phones) if I had to use one I would keep the door wedged open with my foot.

    What was in YOUR sandwich?

    Tin of pink salmon, take bones out. Plenty of pepper and vinegar, mash together with some boiled potatoes until you have a pink goo. Two slices of buttered bread, spread pink goo on them and eat.

    How's your day?

    It would have been nice to have had a vote on this. IoM residents could not vote but whatever the outcome we will feel the effects of it as much as any UK citizen.

    Names you like and don't like

    Okay, my partners daughter has three children and named them as follows... Zephyr-Lily, Aurora-Daisy and Phoenix-Rose. I'm not saying I dislike the names, but I do feel they're a bit of a mouthful! (The parents have already shortened them to Zeph, Aura and Phe when talking about them)

    The coal man

    Local company (Aalin dairy) recently started up delivering milk in bottles. Younger folk astounded! Castletown fuels still delivering coal but never see any dropped on the streets for the kids to fight over... !
