My! How times have changed

Enter the Honourable Judge's favourite tavern for a dram of Tittle Tattle. There's an ancient bandit in the corner, but I forget his name...

My! How times have changed

Post by coppinpr »

When I was a kid one of the standard "stocking fillers" at Christmas was a "sweets smokers kit". This no longer fashionable sweetmeat consisted of sweet cigarettes, a chocolate cigar and pipe, and, if you were lucky, a pack of candy loose tobacco made of some stringy yellow substance. These never enticed me to smoke (I never have) and disappeared from the sweet shop shelves years ago.

Yesterday I saw this modern replacement a "Candy Sushi take away". Although I'm a great fan of Japanese food I hate sushi and this will not change my mind !!COOEE!!
