Health and Wellbeing
When I get in a lot of pain, which seems to happen a lot now, I have to divert myself. Usually I go outside… that works for a little while, but then I need a rest. So I come in and I do this (crossword). I got stuck on one of the answers. Usually I ring up my son and he looks it up for me on the computer but he was away that day. Oh bother, I thought- I couldn’t get it. Then I thought, I’ve got to go to the chemist, there’s a lot of smart guys in there.
Precious childhood memories from some of Dixon’s lifelong customers. “All my life, I’ve been in and out of that shop like a Yo-Yo.”
There were all these cabinets, some glass fronted, Bunsen burners and a small counter where the pharmacist decanted his pills, counting them. You’d bring your own bottle back, they were corked bottles in those days. Mrs Dixon’s used to make the cough medicines and the elixirs in the kitchen, I guess. It was mysterious.
