Re: Ermo Marroni's chip shop

I remember the fish and Chip shop at the top of Glasgow street so well, Best chips in the three towns. One thing that sticks out in my mind , was the line of people waiting for their fish and chips. The delay was usually caused by Ermo heating up the large fryer, which was coal fired. His method of ...

Re: The Grants - Now McGlone's

Interesting to read that sentance about an icecream Van Parked on the 200 meter limit from the School.
I never heard of this rule before. Is this the Law now back there in the old country.

Re: Arran ferry

Tom
your camping in glen Rosa sounds so familiar, we done all of those things but we camped at Corrie so no bicycles for hire. And yes the wee "Mann burn" did burst its banks and washed us out. But that was back in the day's of Glen Sannox ii.

How many threetowners over 80years old

Hi Threetowners,
I just had my 80th birthday party last Saturday, the 27th may. It was a great success we all had a great time. But it did bring home to me that 80 is pretty old and I wondered if there are many more Threetowners 80 and over.

Re: Have you ever climbed Goat Fell on Arran?

At one time in the 50s there was a foot race form Brodick to the cairn at the top of Goatfell. I haven't heard anything about this race for years now so suppose it no longer happens.
maybe it should be started up again, would be a good tourist attraction.

Re: Jock Shearer

I remember Jock {sergeant} Shearer as a very tough Cop but also very fair with a great sense of humor. As a young lad I once hit him with a snowball, I'm not sure about his reaction as our wee gang all run away. But I do remember him shouting something. He knew who I was, but nothing every came of i...

Re: Bona Fide travellers

The bona Fide travelers act was a farce, and quite a laugh. I'm remembering the 50s People from Kilwinning would come to Ardrossan for a drink on the pretense that they were going to largs, The Ardrossan mob would go to kilwinning for a drink on the pretense they were going to Kilmarnock. The result...
