'Mondays to Fridays he takes his boat to sea, Saturdays he takes his thirst to a pub, and Sundays he takes his wife to bed. And by God, by the time Monday morning's come around his wife is that sick of him that she's as pleased as the seagulls to get him off to sea again.' David Jones did not take long to see the reason why. A climbing holiday had first brought him to the west coast of Scotland. Chance, or fate, had introduced him to Donald. The dyas, which grew into weeks, that he spent fishing for lobster and herring were unlike any that he had ever known before, and as he progresses from being a 'Green hand' to a practicised fisherman, he finds the change form his strict chapel-going home in Wales to this new world of the 'Hairy wullies, ' the scalders, and the dominating figure of King Herring both stimulating and hilarious."--P.

It was typical of so many corner shops - the shops that are now more and more becoming just a memory, overwhelmed by the march of the supermarket. The corner shop where customers were known, often friends, not just faces at a checkout point, where shopping was gossipy, unhurried. A shop full of remembered smells of childhood: soft soap, aniseed balls, bacon and tea.
