    Ann and Barry had a dog????

    I thought it was just jam!

    I think the dog was called Rover.

    I have vague memories of (even then) thinking "maaaan...that's so unoriginal!"

    Ann and Barry got the dog as a puppy in 'Happy Days' (Stage Two : Book One)

    His name was Rover.

    Thought I posted in this thread before, but obviously it's the other older Anne & Barry thread. My neighbours kid had to do a project for his Teaching Degree, and you guessed it, he did a Tom and Nuala projector reel. Tom and Nuala are having a Picnic, Tom and Nuala are walking the Dog, Tom and Nuala are kicking the ball.

    I was Tom, my next door neighbour was Nuala. Think there's still a copy of the projector film in Beaumont Girls School in Cork. Once the lads in Beaumont Boys School found out, I wasn't left alone for months - the ribbing I got over that!

    Wasn't there also some of the readers in school there were basic books and the advanced or extension readers (can't remember which). I remember one of the books had a story of a secret garden owned by a mr. black. another book told the story of Deirere of the sorrows. The junior infants book told the story of a red car.
    Also the Sugradh Spraoi, Siamsa and Sonas

    Ewwwww those projectors sucked. I remember our teacher made a big deal of it made out like we were going to get a movie to watch, we were all dead excited and then we had to spend the next few hrs reading irish THAT STANK!!!!! I think the projector is the reason i cant speak irish must have conditioned my brain to Irish= reading boring muck for hrs
    We had one of those projectors in Irish as well.I remember one had a story about a boy being teased by his sisters for having long hair.

    Lads, just happen to be reading Ann & Barry right now with the little fella. I don't recall this book at all, but I am worried about whether I should be reading the version that the school provided, or this new up to date Internet version... I don't want him to get left behind you know?
