      DC: Her daughter and mum yes!
      AS: The daughter and the landlady?
      DC: Yes. Her daughter was about 20 odd mum was slim then wasn't she?
      Well she belted her! (laughter)
      JS: So who pulled the poker out?
      DC: The postman! The postman come along as she was hitting mum on the head with a poker mum was hitting her mother the daughter's behind mum hitting her with a poker and he come along and said "Let's 'ave it fair" and put the poker down the drain! (laughter) I can remember that!
      IC: And the two women carried on fighting?! the three women!
      AS: The three women yes!
      DC: (inaudible) down yes. They took mum to court and of course judge reckoned that the two you know... bound em over but he's left the one? (inaudible)
      IC: Both of them? Bound them over to keep the peace and nothing came of it there was only costs to pay!

      JS: We're you a happy family? With 9 of you?
      DC: Oh yes. We was always having parties? even then. Going to parties
      IC: Well people made their own amusement didn't they? And you know like? if you were lucky enough as your mother always did I think have a piano? and people were (inaudible) they always used to play the piano and sing, she used to do concerts didn't she?
      DC: Well of course my mother used to always do a lot for the church? she used to sing at the church? concerts and all that? always.
      IC: I know she went on an outing once? a church outing
      DC: Oh! We were left? Frank and I were left with the vicar?and his wife? oh!
      IC: Left with the vicar? And the vicar's wife gave Frank and Dad strawberries for tea! And course this was wonderful you know? strawberries for tea? and Frank didn't know what to do with the end bit, and he was chucking them onto the floor, they was all under the table on the floor! (laughter) and then he was tucking things round his plate, cause he didn't know what to do with them!
      DC: Oh? she was nice that vicar's wife
      IC: And anyway when mum went on this woman's outing? and the vicar went along, and they stopped you know like for a drink, and mum you know wanted her Guinness and erm oh the vicar had to be she said "look here" she says "I do no more for the church if I can't have my drink when I want one" she says "Cup of tea? You can keep your cup of tea! I want my drink of Guinness!" (laughter) Otherwise, you know I don't do any more for the church? you don't tell me what to do!
      DC: Oh he was a? he was a so and so?his wife was lovely.
      IC: And after that you know they never said anything to mum, she was allowed to do what she wanted.
      But she did a lot of concerts didn't she your mum for the church.
      JS: I can remember when we stayed with her that time and she'd have her Guinness at about 11 o clock in the morning
      DC: Everybody had to have a little bit we always used to when we were kids!
      JS: We all had a drop in an eggcup!
      IC: All the kiddies had a little drop yes!
      JS: We had to bring out an eggcup up
      IC: When they had parties they had a barrel in the hall with a tap on! (laughter) and when our Robert was a little boy he used to go and turn it on, and there'd be Guinness or beer or something all over the floor!
      DC: We were always always as kids always had our little drop of whisky
      IC: I think it's the right way if you bring up children to have a little drink, if you're people that take a little drink for yourself then they don't want to go and explore these things when their older themselves and take it to excess. I think its quite a good thing if you're a family that
      DC: My father never used to drink in the house. My mother always had her Guinness but my father never.
      IC: Well I think really your mother had it you know because she had a large family
      JS: Probably gave her iron and energy
      IC: Well this is it you see it gave her strength, that's why she had it in the middle of the day as well as probably one at night, and it was of course cheap in those days, and it fed her because she like any good mother gives everything to her children and her husband, their all served first and you get the scraps that are left. So, I think that's the reason
