That was a considerate gesture on your part chic..your son-in-law will have taken away equally pleasant memories of you. A similar gesture was
made to myself when I was over there, so I know how the memory will last.
The 'Eagle and Child' remains..and being a Northener, I am familiar with Rainford, it is half way between Manchester where I was born, and Liverpool, where I have lived. Boundaries changed and it now is declared to be in Merseyside. Lovely people.
btw would that by ancy chance be steak and kidney pie? Tasty!
Glad to see you back 60's chic...
Thanks El. Nice to stop by. Yes, now I remember - The Eagle an Child. Merseyside - makes me think of the song, Ferry Cross the Mersey, a 60s song. My former son-in-law wanted to stay in touch but the divorce was not the happiest and I thought it might not be a good idea at the time. I have heard that he has since remarried and has 2 children. His parents who were so sweet are now deceased. As for the kidney pie, I remember my daughter telling me that it was beef kidney pie - the kidneys from a cow or pig, not kidney beans, which at first I thought it was, lol. Anyway, my son-in-law was homesick for his mother's homemade specialty and I never got around to trying out the recipe when he was here. Too busy working at the time. If they had still been together, I probably would have eventually got to meet my former son-in-law's parents. What a shame. Have a beautiful day, El and thanks for the welcome.:)

<quoted text>My daughter was married to a man from The United Kingdom. Lived in a little town called Rainford, near Manchester, or Liverpool. I loved his accent and manners. Unfortunately the marriage didn't last, but I will never forget him. He called potato chips - crisps and said that it was scarce to find peanut butter at the grocery stores, so I would send a few jars from time to time. While they were living here for a few months, I served my then son-in-law some tea and biscuits on an English tray. He got a big kick out of that and said that he wasn't much for tea, but he appreciated it. I felt rather foolish but he was so sweet about it that I wasn't offended in the least. I never met his family but spoke with them a few times on the phone. So warm, polite and very family orientated. My son-in-law-s favorite dish was Kidney Pie and I never learned how to make it, although I was planning to before they broke up. I have a few pics of my daughter and son-in-law that were taken in a local ale house in Manchester. It has either closed or was renamed. Not sure, but I think it was called "The England and Child", or is it the Eagle and Child? Can't remember!
Morning 60s chic. That was such a lovely story. Thank you for sharing.

Have a lovely day!

Grace, thank you for chiming in. We all know that different cultures have different tastes in menus. When in Rome so to speak... My first trip to France I had to try the cold potato soup. I will NOT attempt to spell it. A wonderful dish. Spain had gazpacho, yum; the UK with Sheperds Pie, good and I will go with the traditional fish and chips!
Whereever I traveled, I ate what was local. Good food and bad food and intesinal madness! Gotta do what the people do!
Thanks for this post, B.. and Good Day to you,

I know it's courteous to 'do in Rome' etc..
although, I'm not too quick to join in
if I don't like the dish, but I always
make sure
do it in a polite way.

The problem with HORSE DNA found in our recent
food, wasn't so much that it was 'horse'meat
having been advertised as pure beef,
when it wasn't 100% beef.

Greetings to you & Bright Eyes.

Ours has turned to rain and it's all melting. Just had an upgraded mobile delivered - one of those dreadful iphone thingies, so will probably be awol for weeks whilst I work out how to use it! God, I hate being a technological dinosaur!

some beautiful feeling we brought
from childhood..
Hi GN - sadly it's all going as I expected. As a kid, my memory of Xmas was going north to the relatives and we often had a white Christmas, so you might well be right. I can still just remember the (to me) huge steam engines at King's Cross.

Probably the Eagle - don't know of any pubs over here that use England in their name. Steak and kidney pie is wonderful - guess you have to like kidneys for it to grab you. Ironically, the traditional dish of the poor centuries ago was beef and oyster pie - because oysters were so cheap. Tea is a definite for me - large mug every morning.

So funny..divided by a common language! LOL I know OF those Dickies,
we called them Dickie Bows, I don't recall them being in fashion for
ladies, but men wore them with a dinner jacket if I'm not mistaken.
I have been known to wear a regular tie, loosely knotted with an
open neck white shirt blouse in my younger days, considered myself looking ever so kinky. lol
Lady El you made my day!!!! LOL I had to call boomer and ask what kinky would me to you. It has 2 different meanings here.:)
Have a wonderful day.

Good day to all!
The Mrs called to ask about language across the pond. Yes, I almost blew coffee on the computer screen! LOL! Trainers aka sneakers here; boot, bonnet, and the kicker was, knock me up in the morning!!
Different phraseology makes this planet fun. We have idioms here in the USA that are divided by the compass. An example, the word soda. Some refer to it as pop as in soda pop; in the south, everything is a "Coke", you ask for soda in Boston, that is exactly what you get, club soda.

Enjoy the day folks. Hunkering down for the cold weather.
