Default A different age

We read so often these days about our older people being treated as if they don't matter. I'm here to tell you that not only do they matter, but are also a mine of information and a source of endless entertainment.

For about the last 20 years or so, I have shared my Wednesday nights with OAP ladies. It started off with four that I would pick up, take to a local club and then take home. Sadly three have passed on but others have taken their place.

Their anecdotes and stories are wonderful to listen to. Can you imagine girls climbing on to slow moving coal trucks as the engine wound it's way up the hill, and them lobbing lumps of coal off for their menfolk to carry home. Wives barred from entering a pub or club. How about Sundays. For men, this day was for the church, not the pub. Ah, those were the days.
