..Do.I get an invitation? I think you owe me a Babycham or three!  No zimmer frame, no hearing aid though. At only 61, I might be a bit young! :Shock:

It's knowin' that your door is always open
And your path is free to walk
That makes me tend to leave my sleepin' bag
Rolled up and stashed behind your couch

 

Gentle on my Mind - Glenn Campbell

Great song Ben

To be honest, Beekay, I'm nearly 62! As I've said before, I've always wanted an older brother. Got an older sister instead. She's 69. She has always wanted a brother too. So....you've got the job! :rolleyes:

See you in Garden Street! ;)  We could nip into Marsden's for half a pound of tub butter, some cheddar cheese cut with a cheesewire and a box of Puff Cracknells, always loved those! Got any in stock, Ben?

If your very good I'll  take you hand in hand to Radford rec. After Marsdens we could nip to Clays for some socks.

Ah, Clay's. Used to go there with dad to buy our shoes as children. We wanted patent, kitten heels with bows on the front. We got...sensible, round-toed, clodhoppers with segs in the soles!

 

Sis complained that she felt and sounded like a carthorse, walking to Peveril in the mornings.

 

Dad's response was, "You can have what you like when you're paying for your own shoes. Til then, you'll have these!"

 

Always wanted some of those silver, sparkly dancing slippers in the window.

I think you'd better go just to keep things in order, jill.  This is shaping up to be a wild party.   :biggrin:

Been thinking about this and I'm not sure whether the Clay's you're referring to also sold shoes.

 

Sometimes, our shoes were from Eric's, which was on the corner of Alfreton Road and Hartley Road, next to FLINT'S newsagents. Sandals for summer usually came from Eric's and I once wangled a pair of silver dancing slippers from there. Clay's was the place for sensible shoes and I think dad knew the chap who owned it. I can see the window in my mind's eye but I cannot remember where the shop was. Anyone recall the location? Shoes from Clay's were always wrapped in a long brown paper bag, never in a shoebox!

As we were talking of decades ago, it doesn't  really matter Jill. I never mentioned shoes, it were SOCKS. Their  location was opposite the Sir Garnet Wolsley,  at the five ways island on Denman street, where Norton street crossed Denman st. Can't  remember the street that ran aside of Clays, I  wouldn't  have thought it would be on Mr Google.

Bet CT comes up with a street map to shoq me my errors. Cheers little sister. smile2

Thanks big brother! Possibly not the same shop. I remember that area well. I'm sure someone will know where Clay's shoe shop was. Can't have been far away because we always walked there....in our sensible shoes!

There was a Clays on Clifton, very near where we lived. I'm not sure if it sold shoes, but I remember going in there with my mum to get her supplies of knitting wool, cotton, sewing needles etc.
