Mackerels and Wealth

Mackerel Fishing
Went out with the darrows yesterday off Ardghunel and landed some mackerel.
They weren’t exactly of barracuda proportions but fried up with some oatmeal they made a damn fine supper!
Measuring a Sleat Woman’s Wealth
I’ve recently discovered the true measurement of a Sleat woman’s wealth.
Forget Post Office Savings Accounts.
Forget how many heifers they have on the hill.
Forget how many back issues of the People’s Friend they possess.
Forget amnesia.
The true measurement is  ;  How many folding tables do they have?
Stashed away behind doors.
Hidden behind couches for those unexpected visitors.
Invariably collected over many, many years, these items indicate a Sleat lady’s true wealth.
