A Memory of Fishcross

I left Fishcross in September 1962. I was part of the MacKay clan way back when everyone knew everyone. I had a friend across from where I lived at 2 Alloa Road, her name was Catherine Logan. My brother Ken (Kye) had a pal Michael Finnan who now lives in our old house. My sister Moira and Ken have seen Cokey Joe at his old farmhouse in his bath singing, outside, with his boots still on legs hanging over the edge. He used to help with the coal delivery in exchange for a bowl of tea and a piece and jam. I remember getting crisps handed over the wall at play time in the playground of Fishcross school. There's a lot I do remember. My grandparents Maggie and Kenny McKay lived at 21 Lawswell,. My son is currently in Scotland and will be visiting my village on the 11th then heading to Sauchie to visit my family. I'm so proud Adam has gone to check his roots, his grandparents Donald (would be so proud) as I know Betty Mckay is.
