We used to call Peggy 'dip n' lick! happy memories...
I remember sitting on the wall outside waiting for our mates to be served and eating our chips. Now I sympathise with those poor people who lived in the house next door. I'll bet their garden was always littered with chip wrappers too... not left by us of course!
May your troubles be less, your blessings be more, nothing but happiness come through your door.
