Weerzr me Dad...........Fred Pass
« on: October 12, 2009, 10:35:56 AM »

The tent,the bucket and me by Emma Kennedy

True life stories of when she went camping with her parents in the seventies,very funny and a bit rude in places.

Weerzr me Dad...........Fred Pass.

About the life of a young Sheffield lad growing up in the Sheffield slums in the 1940's and 50's

This is an insight into what life was like for poor families just after the war in Sheffield,but so so funny.This was written by an ex steelworker and all the proceeds went to charity.

>> Weerzr me Dad...........Fred Pass <<

I'm going to look for a copy of that, unkyUb. I have a fascination for reading histories of folks living in poverty or in very hard times. Don't know why...maybe just to remind myself how lucky I have been.

Thanks for the suggestion... :)

I am thoroughly enjoying this book, unkyUb, it is so very funny....but always with a sting in the tail.

Living conditions for so many people were dreadful, yet they kept their humour....and their love of a close family and neighbourhood life.

Two things I have learned :-

Never buy a boy a John Bull printing set.
and
Never take a job as a postman in Sheffield...... :lol:

I need a wee bitty translation Sheffield to English ( :D ) if you can help......in the phrase "Roorin' bleedin' kids" ( page 54), what would "roorin'" be ?

'Roorin'..............means crying.Pronounced  'Ruerin'............Now do you get it............I though not  :lol:

Re Postman............ :lol: :lol: :lol:


Its a bit like the Scottish word.......'pieces'.It was not till I met Sue I found out what that meant.(She use to work with a Glaswegian lady)  :lol:

Sue use to act as my translator when we watched Rab C Nesbitt  :lol:
