There were two Italian cafes in Bishopbriggs in the fifties both had vans. I don't know why but our family supported Tony's. The other was Ted's short for Tedesco. I'm sure I would gladly have accepted ice cream from either one!!! When I was about eight my big ambition was to be able to walk into Tony's and order a plate of hot peas and vinegar for sixpence. Not that I was crazy about peas but I thought that would have been the height of independence and maturity in other words ....."a' grown up!"
Bad luck, emotional blackmail, soppy sentiments, no matter what ! The chain letter stops here!
