    There was two dookits on our street about 30 yards apart,the doo fleeing used to draw quite a crowd on a sunday when one loft would let out a doo and the other a hen to see who could catch and keep the others bird,there was no end of fights and fall outs between the doo flee'ers. there was a shop in Springfield road where all the buying and selling of the doos took place.

    Is it just me that remembers a time when you didn't put 'an' before certain words begining with 'h'?

    "An historic moment" I don't remember ever being taught that and I left school in 91.

    It's also incredibly annoying. Anyone who uses that is immediately marked down as an untrustworthy *.

    Yeah, I remember the crowds watching the Hen trying to entice the Doo(*)onto her board(Think the Doo fleers called it 'Tred').Used to get first pick at football by saying '* or a Hen':84:
    Yeah remember the shop at the bottom of Springfield road near to the junction of London Rd

    The guy who owned it's brother stayed up my close. He used to 'flee his doos' from the loft in the close. We stayed 'tap dancer' but his cages etc were above our next door neighbours. His boy was always putting his foot through the ceiling. That caused many an arguement. We thought it was as funny as *

    Aww my mum used to decorate the house with those things!! Sadly no longer with us but they definitely take me back and remind me of her.
    She also used to hang the shiny flimsy ones that went from corner to corner on the ceiling. Lost count how many were pieced together with cellotape after me and my brother kicking a soft ball about!

    I used to put a kwenchy cup in the back of my brakes to make it rattle when on my bike. Also used to have a wee motorbike rev thing on my handlebar. Also a yellow tennents lager circle thing in my spokes. Hated them spokies that slid up and down with a passion
