Subject: RE: BS: The (in)glorious 12th

I don't think I've even had peasant or any of the game birds.

I have eaten woodpigeon though and rabbit back in a time when mum (a life long vegetarian) was open to cooking a bit more for her then meat eating husband and then (I' not sure who is and isn't now in the family...) carnivorous children and I've long been mostly veg, largely for convenience but seem to loose taste for meat, etc. I could waffle on a while there...

Those were probably reasonably "normal", at least my first time round in a small village in N Wales mid 60s and while, yes, dad was with the Abbey and mum a physio, I struggle to think of it all as being rich/poor. Except to say that where I once lived would be expensive property wise now - any property - the village moved from once "behind the times" to "highly desirable"
