Strange goings on there ......

Looks like the gentleman to her left is thinking about 'getting her' ...... mmmmm, I say Doris !
While the gent 2nd from right has dropped his white stick and still refuses to stop his game of pocket billiards.
Worst of all though is the spiv with the dark sports jacket 2 left of M'lady .... he's thoroughly enjoying his game of squash the midget :lol:

No doubt freemasons every one :P

Just looking at this old post and Holla, my mother and I worked in many a house doing housework for various very well off people in Blackrock in the 50's and 60's and do you know they really had no idea just what kind of life we ( the ordinary people) were living and the subject never arose- we were just there to clean. But we had the oppoprtunity to read good books and appreciate fine art (as we dusted). No experience is ever wasted!!

Rocker, I love your positive spin on everything. You are dead right when you say no experience is ever wasted.
I used to do odd jobs for an 'oul wan' in Vesey Place. Always had to enter through the Basement door.
Every Saturday morning I had to fill about 30 coal buckets in the Mews and take them by wheelbarrow up close to the house, below the Conservatory. This made it easier for the maid to fetch coal during the week.
One Saturday I was told to take out some rubbish including some books that were being thrown out. One of the books was on Sex Education. Well, I can tell you, we didn't have that book in the Christian Brothers Library in Eblana Avenue. I pocketed it and took it home. Had to hide it, of course, but very quickly got a reputation of knowing how 'babies are made' around the street and school. I was only about 10 at the time. This made me curious for more information on this subject so I used to go into the adult Library and peruse all the related books there. All went fine until my father received a letter from the Head Librarian summoning him to the Library. I was duly barred from the adult Library for reading "inappropriate material for a child" and had to spend the next few years contenting myself with The Cat in The Hat and suchlike.
Sorry that this is slightly off-topic.

Great story Sputnik. I love when people go off topic, that's when the fabulous quirks of life emerge. We had a great librarian in Blackrock and she was really interested in what we read as children and ordered any books she could for us. I often pass her house and she is always sitting reading on a chair outside her hall door(weather permitting). She must be in her eighties but with a brain as sharp as a twenty year old.

What has this got to do with Dun Laoghaire Golf Club members,I don't know, but I love it. As you both say experience is never lost and so much can be learned from Librarys. :D :D

What do you call that white garden block with legs in the photo? They were everywhere in the 60s and 70s, cant say Ive seen any for years. It sort of says please dont thread on the grass.
