Bag ah yam still around ? I left Gouyave coming up to 40 years ago and i still remember this name.
I went to Anglican school in Gouyave and Charlie one shirt was in my class, is he still about?
Arthur you appear to have forgotten "Piece ah Pork", yes I know he dead, may he RIP.
"Dry Bread", he's in Huddersfield UK.
"Donkey Tail", he dead too RIP, and
"Tatou", he alive and still building houses in Gouyave
And we had "Mouse" from Victoria Road (Carpo Street). He was a good tailor,.who work from the deceased Domingo's Tailor Shop, before branching off in his own workshop not far away from Domingo's.
Mouse is a son of Mr. And Mrs. Abel. His brothers are Charles and Garbriel. I only knew that he'd one sister called, Delta. They are the Ambrose Famiy who, in the early days, had a Steel Pan Band next to their house on Victoria Road.
We'd a fella called "Manicou" too. Manicou was Miss Louie's son. Charlie, and Kerol (sp),.and Obrian RIP, was his brothers, with Pam and Kathleen, who taught in The St. John's RC School his sisters.
We in Gouyave have experienced the best of times, with our food, people and culture. No one was ever bored with the Gouyave life. It was meant to make us happy,.and stress free.
I will always live Gouyave for what it is!
>>And we had "Mouse" from Victoria Road (Carpo Street).<<
Weren't they talking about things pertaining to the food that we ate? DNJ, Miss Melda would have killed you if she only knew that you used to eat "mouse" behind her back!!(lol). Just kidding, my friend.
I'd understood the initial post that Arthur posted here. He used the names of some mere animals, the nicknames of some fellas in Gouyave. He did not name them as "food", but as to build a "zoo". If he'd named them as edible, then, I would've believed it to be coming from an Asian point of view, where ecology is highly displayed with what kinds of animals they (China, Japan), find delicacy in.
I took the view of the common approach Arthur used, to bring credence to his story. And, so, hence the reason why I'd mentioned "Mouse, Manicou" in my reply to Mangodog's take on the subject.
According to Mangodog, Arthur had left out "Piece a Pork" in his story. Piece a Pork too, wasn't an animal that was consumed as food. In fact, he was a fisherman, who toiled hard in the sea. He was a human being, with a wife, Queen,.and some children to go with that.
Oh, sure. Miss Melda was a hater of mice, cockroaches, and spiders looming in her house. She purchased cans of Baygon Spray, and endless mouse traps to rid them out of her home. She would've been extremely annoyed with any one of her childre, who ate the mouse for any reason at all. If they did, then it would've been one of her biggest secrets kept.
I felt the kidding attitude that you came up with. It brought laughter to me, and extended beforehand, a brilliant and spectacular start of my day!
It was a great piece of humor!
