Hi, going through some messages I hadn't been able to get to.
I don't know if it was my eye sight or someone elses who
had postman not potsman. Less boring for sure. People drank so much then. I remember being surprised when Puritan's gave children beer as a regular beverage, maybe they learned early about 'water'. One thing I found in Ireland was about 'spirit dealers' not the old fashioned public houses. Often sold in a person house. What we call a living room would be where the family served drink, poteen, and lived in the back. don't you just love this. Annette
