Andytown News diarist with an eye on the week just gone, or indeed the one just ahead. Interested in the strange, the funny and the totally bonkers.
Came across this in Bangor. I think it's also known as the Church of the Latter-Day Punch and Judy
View from my window at Teach Basil. The Black Mountain is beyond the treeline, or it was this morning
The Euro poster in Andytown News is class. Put it on the garage door and the sun came out. That must be an omen
Finally on our day out, Joe's favourite, mine too. 1950s thresher: chaff hay our end, wheat being bagged the other
This was the bookshop @ Springhill House Moneymore today. Got the Eamonn Mallie book for a quid. Bargain (I think)
Late lunch, Magherafelt. Big union jack in the middle of town has barbed-wire halfway up pole. Tells its own story
Last week's Fri pic Islandbawn St/ Falls junction. Today dockers march in support of H-Block protest. But where?
Dug this out for Eye On the Past. The original Squinter, A'town News June 1982. FAF (and that's not Funny As Flip)
This morning's Andytown News front page...
Admire your chutzpah, Conall, but come on... Come back to me when you're saying that on the doorsteps in Kiltimagh
Not sure what I'll be doing, but I hear in a recession many people are holding a party for world's richest woman
Enjoyed the cricket at Stormont v much yesterday while following Antrim on Twitter. Do I get a CRC grant for that?
Had to stop the car passing this in Donegal. I can recall a few nights when that combo might have been handy
Your Friday tester: Protest at traffic danger to children, Andytown News, 1979. But where?
My house martins' young have hatched. Spent an hour last night watching. Time for plastic sheet on wheelie bins
Hmm. Really? And tell me, BBC, how much did thought shrink by? I think heatstroke is setting in
And finally on my tour of North Belfast, this at corner of Hughenden Ave. No, I have't a barney either
It's true what they say – if you sit around long enough everyone will drop by
I opened a real can of worms when I wrote this for today's paper. My dream last night was directed by Wes Craven
Places I'd love to be while looking out at sun: The Big Guy cooling off on Ponte Vecchio. Sighs, gets on with it
