Lindamac, how do you remember all those things? It was great to read your post because it brought back all those memories!
I remember one night all the kids up our close were allowed to stay out in the backcourt under all these blanket tents. We used big stones to hold the sides out and down. We told each other ghost stories and some of the mums brought us out our supper before saying goodnight! That could never happen nowadays, but nobody ever thought we could come to any harm then, did they?
Sad that our kids don't have the freedom we had.

Yeah Remember that .......Playin at wee shoaps. Broken gless fur muney. " Beds " wis another game. Peaver wi the cherry blossom shoo polish tin. Aleavio wis another. Kick the can. Those balls in the nylon always ended up on the street wires somehow.
Moshy was a good game for money with the three holes........up and doon three times then kill. Chinese ropes wis another...multi coloured elastic bands joined together which went round you and your parteners ankles as tricks were done with them. Whit aboot "The Den". This was a designer type dwelling made from old wood and cardboard with lino and carpets on the floor gathered from everywhere. The girls were suitably impressed and it usually ended up in serious.....Winchin laugh.gif

school holidays were long and hot in the late 60s. i remembe the tar melting in the street. we played in street from morning till night. no one gave us into trouble for kicking a ball or running playing kick the can. we had great imaginations and would play cowboys and indians, have concerts in the back garden, open a shop at the front gate and sell anything from juice to toys or annuals, draw "beds" in the street, ride our bikes "round the block". kids today don't know how to play!

This page is bringing back memories. I well remember the ball in the stocking. We used to go a picnic to the Bumblebee park [a bit of waste ground off Kirklee Road] or down to the Kelvin Park with a bottle of water and pieces and jam. I remember going on a tram to Milngavie with my pals and the conductress on the tram came up to us just as we reached the Rio picture house and said "how faur dae ye think yer gaun fur a penny" and chucked us off the tram.

Does anyone remember the Roxy picture house at Gairbraid Avenue and the Star [flea pit - itching tae get in and scratching tae get oot] in Maryhill Road. We went to the Roxy nearly every Saturday afternoon and would come up Maryhill Road galloping on a pretend horse [being a cowie or an Injun]. We were in there the whole afternoon, it was such a long programme. Not like today where you get one film and pay a fortune. You could get 1d worth of scraps [crispy wee chip ends] from Marino's chip shop.
