Memories...

The family that took a road trip round Nigeria, I don't know if any one remembers them
That book, and the other English Language books we used in primary school taught me things i still know about the different places in 9ja...eg Abeokuta means under rock?
Kaduna and crocodiles? etc

I feel old cheesy eh?
Good times

My mom would hold a cane while my brother would be crying and reading "Mr Giwa is a shop-keeper. He has a shop in Lawal's village"...
LOL. The olodo wanted to be playing, but mother made sure he read too...but meeen, my brothers played...like mad

Re: Do You Remember The Nwosu Family? by tnktosin(m): 4:39pm On Dec 26, 2012
Mr Nwosu has two daughters and four sons, they are preparing for Christmas...Nkechi is sweeping the floor while Ngozi is cutting the pineapple with a knife. Mrs Nwosu is cooking the rice. There are some tomatoes on the table near the big pot.
Mr Nwosu is holding two big chickens. The girls are happy, they like Christmas time, they like eating chicken and rice and they like singing Christmas songs.

That's my memory of the Nwosu's. I think I got most parts right tongue
