What about the Spanish blokes selling onions that came door to door on their pushbikes, were they illegal immigrants in those days?

Do the Gypsies still go around selling pegs and crap ?

I liked it when you took a jug to the horse & cart Milko and he would measure it out, same with the butter.

Reading the torn up newspaper on the Lav was great.

Were those blokes really french or whatever, I can remember my mum saying that these people were due and sure enough they arrived. We used to have loads of onions on the cellar stairs all wrapped together by their dried leaves.

I cant believe they came all that way to sell a few onions!:confused:

We have Ragbone come round weekly!! Even 2 or 3 a week sometimes. It's funny. I'd never heard of it before until i came up here. I just remember waking up one morning and hearing someone shouting out what seemed to be in deep pain... when i woke Goo up, and asked him what on earth it was, he laughed at me and explained. He seemed more surprised that i'd never heard of it before. How strange.

That was probably the bloke shouting 'bring out your dead' dont mix him up with the ragman, or you will put the old folk on the wrong cart and you will look a right birk then wont you?
