Re: just a gab

Hi elizabeth , I think I remember you from way back, I used to play with your brother John. When my Uncle Bert Dickison used to live down behind Hendersons farm and John lived in the cottage on westburn road. Myself, John and my cousins Nancy Janet and June had many a day playing and helping bring in the cows for milking and trying to get down the rabbit holes. I also remember Maggie, I guess she was your sister, stayed down the other road on the way to the power station. My mum was Nancy Hunter,aunts were Ella, Janet,Sadie and Tina grandparents were Jenny and Tote,please email me if you wanna chat.

Did you go to Bushy, do you remember any of your school chum,s going to Aberfoyle, I also went to Gateside secondary,as far as I know John,s still a single man, he stay,s with his sister Molly I,m not realy aquainted with the family much as we were never a close family I left home at 14 and came to belfast at the age of 15 the month before my 16th birthday and Iv,e been here ever since. The people are fantastic here, I fitted in straight away the make you feel very welcome so don,t listen to all you hear, I arrived here with only a fifty pence piece in my pocket and although Iv,e had a few rough times, I wouldn,t give it up for any thing.
