The way things used to be .

What a thought-provoking post, thank you so much.

My gran made the best Yorkshire pud I've ever tasted. It was made in the same roasting tray that the roast had been cooked in and had all the bits of meat attached to the bottom of the tray-sized pud, making it dense at the bottom and raised at the sides. Like you said, we had the Yorkshire before the roast itself. My ex-wife tried to re-reate the pud al-la grandma, but could never do it. Jimmy Clitheroe was magic and all -round family entertainment. You can still listen to the programs on Youtube... well worth the effort even now.

What about the rice pudding baked in a cracked glaze dish and coming out of the Yorkshire Range with a brown crust on the top .:)

And then we got the man with the Antelope skin coats.

"Excusie mr" He would begin as he leaned out of the drivers window of his Fiat Punto.

"I need to get to Dover to catchee di ferreee to Italia and I have no petrol"

He follows this up with ," I have jus one Antelope coat leeeft that sells in Mark and Spencer for £50 I let you havvve eet for just £25 so as I can get petrol to Dover" .

 

You examined the coat and if you were daft paid him and went away happy as a lamb until!!!! on your first night down Town showing of your antelope skin in the Mucky Duck it rained on the way home and the coat to beat all coats became a soggy mess that drooped below your knees and never recovered its shape . it was never worn again and you hoped that that smooth talking grease ball Itie had fell over board on his way back to Verona.

In the '50s. a poorly dressed man used to go door to door on the Stradbroke estate pushing a wheelbarrow. He was selling bottles of bleach.
