  1. I once knew a lady from Norway , She swung by her legs in the doorway, She said " don't be so shy, give it a try I think that I've just found one more way ". I once knew a girl from Dundee, and I put my hand on her knee, She said " come on my love, heaven's above ", I said " I know, but I'm late for my tea ! ".

All the best, John. ---------- Post added 11-10-2013 at 22:09 ---------- As I say, although I wrote to Sue in November 2009, but she lost my address.

As I say, this bloody phone keeps stopping from sending private messages. John. ---------- Post added 14-10-2013 at 16:11 ---------- The matter has been sorted.
  8. :help:Sue is the grandaughter of my Grandad's brother . I am the Grandson of Wilf Mather. Billy was the other brother of my Grandad. He ran a shop in Ranskill Road which he bought with the compensation that he got from saving some fellow miners by shoving a pit prop that he pit prop into a runaway wagon into the rails . Trouble was that although saved the lads it came off the rails and took his leg off. Sue's gran H dad, Jack, was the third brother. Hence Sue is the grandaughter of my great uncle Jack, who had a tash like Jimmy Edwards.Great uncle Billy ( the bloke with the wooden leg who owned the shop) and great uncle Jack, with the tash, both died in about 1958/9.
  9. My Grandad Wilf, and my Grandma lived at number 59. My dad was called John ( but known as Jack) and my Aunty Louie and Auntie Freda lived there as well. If Sue wants to get in touch my Email address is johnw.mather@virgin.net. Johnw.mather@virgin.net I didn't want to give that out, but the private message function doesn't seem to work on this batphone. P.S. I have done a family tree for Sue. Keep smiling - John.

I don't seem to be able to send messages. Your surname must begin with the letter C though.

She died in August 2009. ---------- Post added 11-10-2013 at 20:26 ---------- That was my Auntie Freda. She died in August 2009.
