Hi All,
Hey Davey, Foxy here. That auld Miss McClure used to travel from Ayr everyday to Kipp School, l remember Mrs MacDonald, to be quite honest l didn't like her at all, snobbish auld b@#$%^. Her husband was an insurance collector, so he would tell her how everyone in her class, how they lived
You might remember this guy, Thomas Melvin? his big brother Robert wrote to me a few months ago, he was telling me that Mrs MacDonald had died, recently, Christ she must have been about a hunner!
Do you remember Miss Black? a wee blonde stoater so she wis, she taught a much younger class though.
Hey Wee McLeish, you never wrote back to me,
Foxy

Hi Davy, Foxy here. Man, sorry to hear about your sister Emmy,Say hello to the rest of the family though. Was Emmy older than you?
The reason l am asking is one time in Ms McClures class your brother Tommy got in a fight with another guy, can't remember his name, but someone sent for the "Heidie", Mr Strathern, commonly known as "Job" maybe because he resembled a big shit. Anyhow, he came barging into the class and grab tommy, your other brother alex tried to kick Job, but then ran home and brought 2 of your older sisters. They beat the crap out of Job, before it was all over the cops were there, the class was in an uproar, it was great.
I didn't know George Redmond, but l do remember Paddy,

Hiya Davy, I've found this site again after I lost contact with it for some reason, or rather this part of the site, Yes my Da's name was Tam as was my brother who was also Tam or Tommy as I called him, he was my 'wee' brother as was Robert too,, My brother Tam woulda been about 63yrs now? As Robert will be 60 in a couple of weeks,, I remember the headmaster at Keppochill School as a Mr, Strathearn,, we left Byshot st, and moved to Royston (Garngad ) in 1963 my brother Tam died in 2006 aged 51yrs. Sorry if I've wrote and answered you before Davy, but I kinda find this site quite hard to keep up with there's 'loads' more stuff going on in it from when I joined many moons ago, will really have to get back into it as it's a great wee website with loads of info,
I'm getting auld and confused tae haha Take care Luv Liz x

Hi sprokit, I don't visit this page very often myself anymore, sorry to hear about Tam, last time I saw him must have been around 1971.
