Afternoon all
in 1980 we moved to Menai Bridge on Anglesey
and lived there for just over 2 years
Red Wharf bay was one of our favourite places
I used to take the children there most days though out the summer holidays
I remember the Carnival where the Carnival Queen and her Court came by boat up the Menai straits ant then on a lorry float through the streets and up to the school fields
fond memories just thought I would share them with you

S'mae Shaun~~ and all participants~~~~.

I'm not from Abergavenny, but close, wasn't born there or ever lived there.

No , not been up on Hay Bluff, although my job took me as far afield as that.
I always pick wild mushrooms, dad loved them , but wouldn't risk the ones on the Bluff.lol.. as for putting them into a mutton stew :))must save a few £'s on going to the pub to get merry :))

To explain..Dianne had put Good lick instead of Good luck ,lol in her post, she's edited it now,she won't mind me explaining that, cos we all have a good time on Sue's Aussie thread, the lovely Tec and Perserphone are regular poster on there too,
You can spell check your posting by clicking on the right hand mouse button ( any incorrect word on my PC comes up red underlined ),and spell check will pop up... well it will if you have it in your settings on your PC. Mine is an 'ancient' PC which hubby built, so I sometimes have click on it twice.
The Edit function is on YOUR posting on the same line as your name .. half way across,........... if you have posted something and afterwards want to add or alter that posting click on Edit and you get a screen where you can change anything.
Hope that explains it and I not teaching my granny to suck eggs.LOL

If I use the laptop, it doesn't automatically spell check in GR, it's hubby's not mine so I don't mess about with the settings ! Might get son to do it:)

Llan'dod eh:) Is the Metropole still going strong ?, we used to have quite a few of our annual works consultation meetings there, then ended up in a lovely little pub down by the railway ( if my memory serves me right )

~~~ to Shimms, how's you , you haven't opened my last pm :(
Hope things are fine with you hun:)

Speak soon, must put my washing on the drier... a woman's work is never done !

I suspect Hay on Wye has a Hereford postcode because postcodes are linked to nearest large town/city and Hereford is the nearest to hay on Wye.

Dizzi,

What a relief! I thought she had given birth on the green!!

My grandad always called his Mother-in-Law a battleaxe and if he could avoid her he would! She had my nan in 1905......father unknown then married in 1906 having 3 more children and left my nan with her grandma!

My nan never forgive the husband of her mother for shunning her, but luckily she became very close to her siblings, so her mother must have kept contact whilst she was growing up. My mum remembers going to liverpool with my nan and being dragged into a doorway to hide, as the man in question was walking along the pavement,,,,,he was a policeman!

Alyson Welcome, Pontypridd ha lovely area. Sue Maid thank you for your Nos da .Have you finished your washing yet Sandie. Dizzi thank you for confusing every body on the thread! We had some of that white powdery stuff yesterday
thank goodness it did not stick, I think we have had enough now. Did anybody else have any snow? Did any of you see Planet Earth last night on BBC 1, very good I thought until they had a meal of rotted down birds, I was very close to bringing up my mutton stew. Well folks take care.

Hello Shaun - I hope you are well. It never snows here although it sometimes does up in the highlands - about 1 hour drive from where I live. It's very warm and humid here but it always is in January.

I don't like the sound of that show - eating rotten birds doesn't do much for me:-))

Bore da Shaun and everyone,

No snow here recently. When it snowed in December even the beach was covered right down to the waters edge, which is very unusual.
I didn't watch Planet Earth, which is just as well by the sound of it - rotten birds ugh!

Hope everyone is having a good day, brilliant sunshine here, but very cold.

Hi Sue - Shouldn't you be in bed?

Hwyl fawr,

Tec.

Wash your mouth out...lol.... I told you you I've never been up the Bluff. :))
The magic ones don't grow up here, in fact none do.. mushrooms( not of that kind) ordinary ones do in my home village area. Too bl@@dy cold for any of them to grow up here !

I'm glad your ancestor wasn't actually born on the green at the golf club :))
