Well they ( the older wans) would bring in the remains of the chocolates to me at night when they came back, funny whit ye remember..
betty2
Memories from the corner of the mind
Misty watered coloured memoties
Of the way we were
Scattered pictures of the smiles we left nehind
Smiles we gave to one another of the way we were

Oh if only it could aw be that simple again rolleyes.gif
Melody
Ah'm wi you Betty, remember stockings came in lovely boxes, seamed stockings as well, whit else oh ah'm back tae the sticky oot underskirts, an' powder in compacts and dressing table sets wi a beautiful comb and brush and mirror, whit else? Put the tea oan again an we'll think of all the old things in the olden days, life was kinder then.......ah liked it better then! smile.gif Could be am jist gettin' auld mind you , naw it canny be that!.....
Catherine
Could it be that it was all so simple then
Or has time rewritten every line
If we had the chance to do it all again
Tell me, would we...could we....
Memories..may be beautiful and yet
What's too painful to remember
We simply choose to forget
So it's the laughter, we shall remember
Forever we'll remember
The way we were

Melody
Marion you enjoy yourself, take it easy and keep taking the tablets!! I remember the wee blue bottles Betty was it Evening in Paris? What was Californian Poppy? Belair hair lacquer in the sixties and oh ma duffle coat and ban the bomb badge, and cool white boots and the crochet white dress. I remember going to Lewis's hairdressers for a Mary Quant bob! We wur the coolest!
The fifties seemed more exciting though to me as a wee lassie, the big skirts and dancing shoes in a wee bag.
Marion Dougan
We are going to upstate N.Y. rochester. Still be fun though. Thursday tae Tuesday
wee mags
hey Marion if you and Boab get fed up in Rochester Come on down ha ha biggrin.gif
Heather
It's a long time since I heard anyone mention Bellair hair lacquer and sticky out dresses. I remember some girls used to stick their hair down with a mixture of sugar and water, when it dried in it looked like they had dandruff.

I remember Evening in Paris and how we used to make our own perfume with rose petals and hot water to dissolve the petals.

I was doing a clear out the other day and I came across a hoop underskirt, and a cancan underskirt I had before I got married, they went back in the wardrobe along with my two kilts. Well you never know they might come back into fashion. LOL

Would you believe I still have a persionelle coat ( haven't a clue how to spell that word but I think you will know what I mean) a fur jacket and fur coat in the wardrobe and why not, I still have my wedding dress.

My g'children were Babtized in the Christening gown I bought for my son when he was Christened. It has now been safely put away for the great g'children. laugh.gif

Marion:
Go to Walgreen's or Wallmart and get yourself an instant heating pad, and ice pad, the ice ones stick on, the heating one goes around you and sticks with velcro and stays hot for over 8 hours, I used them when I had sciatica, they were wonderful, pain killers did nothing for me, in fact Motrin worked better than even advil, it breaks down in the system differently.
Have a wonderful time in Rochester, go over to Batavia and have dinner in Christine's Italian restaurant, great food.

Hi to all, this phot is the epitome of Belair hair spray and the big underskirts, the guys always wanted you to go upstairs on the bus...... Me and my friend outside my front door. There was nothing behind her hair, it was all back combed up. The evening in paris "Perfume" !!!! was all the rage.



Anne Perth Aussieland cool.gif
Marion Dougan
Thanks Mags, wish it wis the meet aw uwer agin.

August thank you, I will get Bob to get me the pads. I have a seat that heats and vibrates, I was afraid to use it as they tell you now to do different things for your back. Do you think the seat would work as well as the pads??
betty2
Thought ah'd share this wae yis. Got up this mornin wae the feelin that it wis gonny be a no so good day, so decided tae get masel oot an an no dwell oan the miseries o life. Went tae p/head forge browsed roon the shops (wisna in the mood fur buyin) then felt like a wee cuppa, ah wis sittin therr mindin ma ain business when a young couple wae a wean in a push chair asked me if it wid be awright tae share ma table . Aye says me sure, the man then says therr are people who dont like weans at therr table. but you look like a nice person . Well during the conversation i found out that he was a recovering alcoholic and drug abuser, but has now cleanrd up his act and has moved away to another area. Has a lovely partner and son they are expecting their second child in november . In the short time i had with them they told me how they had turned their lives around. I then said I'm a perfect stranger and you're telling me you're business , the lad then said "you look like a nice wummin he then bought me another cuppa and a do/nut, and then added you have a kind face just like ma granny an ah wish she wis here the day tae see how things turned oot fur me. Well that made what started off to be a miserable day into very worthwhile one. Ah felt aw chuffed rolleyes.gif
