What about sliding down the Links on yer hunkers - before they closed it to cars. Come to think of it, where was the best slide in Bo'ness?

When I was at primary school, Tootie went down on a sledge one winter at the back of the bakery, was going too fast and to stop himself he stuck his legs out in front of him as he hit the bakery wall, breaking both of them, or at least doing serious damage. I next saw him at school in crutches.
