Welsh slate brings back memories, not just it's expense. shortly after retiring I helped a friend strip the ‘bangor blues’ from the roof of a farm house being demolished. after salvaging 14.8 tons, by that night the old arms had developed the shakes and could barely hold the toothbrush steady to clean the teeth.
