Re: Round & Round & Round Paul Goes ....

Thanks Don, Colleen.

One of the more interesting & unexpected outcomes of visiting old properties is learning of the many modern "sayings" that originated as practical aspects of ye olde worlde lyfe.

For example, the second picture is of the cotton emerging from the carding machine to be stored in "cans" which were then carried by the young apprentices to the next process - hence "carrying the can".

Hand looms were valuable & generally robust, so were passed down to the owners' heirs - hence an "heirloom" (not the best photo, I know)
