  1. I think that statement covers just about every thing in any butchers shop.. Not to mention the frozen Beef burgers, sausages, stake and kidney pies, chicken dippers ...............etc. etc etc....... PS. I also love me Black pudding as well.....
  2. There is a stall that sells tripe in the new market at the bottom of the moor plain or honeycomb . I love it raw with pickled onions, plenty of salt pepper and vinegar and a couple of buttered oven bottom bread cakes washed down with a big pint pot of tea .......
  3. Have we had , "Chase a bug around a tree" .......Yer we must have...
  4. Pegs......Teeth. (Tutty pegs. baby talk).. A bit dodgy on his PINS......legs What about those round tins of tooth paste, was it McCleans ?
  5. One thing never fails to amaze me when I see these old photos and that is how dirty the buildings are but how clean the people have kept themselves. Let's not forget these were times when there was no hot water tap on the sink no washing machines or Hovers and yet despite the dirt and grime all around them these people kept their dignity... PS. My Mom grew up on Carlisle street in the twenty's and thirty's I'm ashamed to say I don't know where on there because at some time before I was thought of in the thirty's she and her family were moved to a new estate, Parsons cross..
  6. Makes a mess of the King Richard 1157 - 1199 and king John 1167 - 1216 bit dun it
  7. Cheers Kidley, pretty obvious when you put it like that in it.. Still prefer "Having him on" or even pulling his leg, though I dread to think were that came from.... CHIN PIE .......A dreaded torture you used to get from your Dad when you were little.....
  8. Or, Extracting the Michael.. Never got that one, is it some sort of rhyming slang ? Clogger.....some one who kicked anything/one up in the air on a football pitch.. Titches......Small children.. Bird...........female/ girl friend ...
  9. What did they call that big block of green soap they used for washing clothes before soap powder ? It used to finish up stuck to bottom of the bucket when they emptied it after scrubbing the floor as well.... Gravy train..........Where the money is.
  10. Surprised no one has mentioned Sir J Charles Clegg, Born in Sheffield 1850. Played in the first England vs Scotland international 1872 and refereed the 1882 and 1892 FA cup finals. Played for Sheffield club and the Wednesday. First president of Sheffield and Hallamshire football Association and held the office until his death, 1887-1937. Known as the Napoleon of football, a member of the FA Council from 1886 Chairman from 1890 and president from 1923 until his death in Sheffield on 26th of June 1937 at the age of 87. The first man to be Knighted for services to football in 1927. He was also chairman and later president of Sheffield United and Sheffield Wednesday, both at the same time......
  11. It's Laggin it down......Heavy rain... Got wind up...... frightened Spanking new ......Brand new
  12. Remember when the high light of the week was a trip to the flicks and galloping round the street using your coat as a cloak ? Well I did anyway....
  13. Oh no they didn't !!! Don't tell biased porky's, they sold it for a pound......
  14. Hard to imagine now how much of a revelation those coffee bars were to us teenagers in those days. Seems strange now but at a time when you left school and started work at 15 you couldn't even see A films on your own till you were 16, and 18 to see an X film let alone go in a pub, to have our own places to gather with out adult supervision felt like the first big step to growing up.. Especially when you consider anyone can watch those same X films and far worse on your TV or PC today ....
  15. What did they call the one on Heeley bottom then, was that the Teen bar ?
  16. Like it but I wonder if when looking back our memories are just a bit selective ? Mind you I still wouldn't mind being able to have a good night out in my Charcoal gray Italian style suit and winkle pickers at a WMC with 10/- in my pocket and still coming back with change..... Happy days......
  17. Those snake belts were very popular in the fifty's but I remember in the late forties finding a smashing thick leather belt with a brass buckle and a row of brass studs sticking out to fasten it, in the fields at the back of our house. When I took it home my dad told me it was a horse collar, and nicked it to hold his work trousers up. But I got mi own back later when he walked in with an ex telegram boys bike to take him to work, but we lived on the Arbourthorn back then and he was alright going down hill to work but he had to walk back pushing it up hill, so I don't think he minded too much when I claimed it. My first two wheeler bike and even with the seat fully lowered I could only just touch the peddles with my toes, so he put blocks of wood on them for me to reach and peddle but I still had to stand on the step to get on it. ( He must have been really desperate to get rid.) It was great having my very own two wheeler bike, even if the only way to get off it was to find a patch of grass and fall...
  18. Over coat on the bed and don't forget the oven plate wrapped in a towel. if you had a hot water tap on the sink you were either posh or a council house tenant, a mean they even had a bath room.. Another thing is that nowadays you never see ice on the inside of your bed room windows, funny that, you did back then.. I suppose being an only one helped but I never had to ware a pair of trouser with a patched backside as a kid but I knew plenty that did...
  19. Not in this country he didn't, but then again you have to remember in his time they also owned about a third of what is now France.... Well until John lost Normandy...
  20. If that's the place I'm thinking of on the few occasions I went in there there was a very nice Lady in a white overall with white hair who owned the shop .. When I first moved here the bus stop was higher up on the other side of Woodseats road out side a sweetshop called Churches.......
  21. Did he exist, i 'd like to think so, but then again in the story's he idolized king Richard, who was a Frenchman that couldn't speak a word of English rarely even visited this country but managed to bankrupt it apparently.. Funny old world in it...
  22. Oh ah, Chuck a couple of Shovel fulls on and bank it up ..... It's all a load of "TOSH"........Lies The Bee's knee's.......Looking good. Pin eead.........Not very clever .
  23. I've seen photos but I'm a new comer I moved to Woodseats in 1964 when I got Married ..
  24. We still use "Sen" in place of self has in "Shack thi sen". Poshed........Punched. Which I think has it's roots in the old three legged "Posh" a wooden stool on a stick, an early form of hand powered washing machine.. Wasn't Dolly posh left handed ? Hammered....very drunk or take an Hammering ....badly beaten (physically or sportingly)
  25. Before the Crown house/Pyramid carpets building was built there was a Doctors house and surgery there, Dr Kay I believe, and yes before Tesco's it was CO OP Laundries.. Any one remember Dunk's pawn shop at the top of Woodseats road or Mr Rounds new agents opposite The Chantry ?
