I still play doublers against the wall of the house with the g'daughters. They are still learning how to manage the two balls, and the 6yrs old who is left handed finds it difficult.
They fell about laughing a few weeks ago when I hit the kitchen window with a right bang. laugh.gif

One of the songs they like is:

My father's a king, my mother's a queen
I'm a little princess and your a dirty wee thing
It's not because your dirty, it's not because your clean
Because you've got the whooping cough and measle's in between.
My mother said if I play with you,
She'll put me over her knee and this is what she'll do, she'll give me,
One two three a leery, I spied wallace beery
Sitting on his bumble leery, kissing shirley temple. laugh.gif

i loved playing at balls,we played at school then when we got home we played in the back close against the cellars, we were amused for hours not like the kids nowadays, i tryed to teach my 2 girls balls when we stayed in the tenemants and they were bored after 5 mins and wanted to play rounders mind you i might have hogged the balls for a wee bit longer than i should have, the schools should start learning the kids these games cause the games are gonna die with our generation and the fun they missing out on ,give me a game of balls,skipping ropes chinks,rounders,2 man hunt,dodgey ball, blue murder god that game was murder but great, anyway i'd take one of they games to a playstation any day lol

I remember singing a song that went along the lines of...
"something something ..battle fields were covered in blood huh.gif
there I spied a wounded soldier lying dying saying these words..
Bless my home in Bonnie Scotland bless my wife and only child bless ..something something"

Isn't it weird the songs we sang and how we couldn't even repeat them now ..
"Eeny meeny miny mo
Catch a ****** by the toe
If he squeals let him go
EEny meeny miny mo

How did this one go..
"Hands up kick the can
somebody somebody's got a man
............?
I'll stop now I'm getting funny looks biggrin.gif

Just remembered a skipping and balls song:-
( the lassies used to let me play too)

Ma maw's a mulyinare
(wid ye buliev it)
Blue eyes an' curly hair
( a dinny buliev it)
See her walkin' doon the street
Wi' her big bannana feet
Ma maw's a mulyinare

My father told me of a game they used to play with cans when he was a kid. There were rows of miners houses with beds built into the walls and the toilets and wash houses ( for the clothes wash, the family bathed in a big zink bath in front of the fire) were built onto the back walls outside.
The houses had wooden shutters to cover the windows at night. Before night-fall one of the boys would walk past a house and stick a big safety pin with a piece of cotton thread attatched, hard into the wooden shutter
and then the boys would wait untill someone came out and closed the shutter and sneak over to the window and tie a big joiner's nail onto the cotton thread. Cans would then be stacked up, very quietly and carefully in front of the door. the cotton would be pulled, from a safe distance, and the big nail would rattle against the window and when the someone came running out the boys would run away shouting "Nurcky Nurckeee"

We were told naturally not to do it, but we did it too.

To be really mean though, we'd ignore the bit with the safety pin and cotton and just pile the cans up at the door then pick a hero to get up
onto the wash-house and creep up the slates of the roof and place a big clod of earth and grass on top of the chimney pot and then slide back down quick as you could.
As the house filled with smoke they'd come running out knocking cans all over the place while we shouted " Nurckee Nurckeeee"
That was Miners' Nurcky Nurcky but if you got caught you'd get a hiding.
All good clean fun for growing lads.
