The Anonymous Widower

Memories of Childhood

I’ve said before that I spent a lot of time as a child in my father’s print works in Wood Green. I used to set all of the handbills for the Dunlop tennis tournaments held all round the UK.  But my father did other jobs for Dunlop including their industrial gloves catalogues.  These were uprated and reprinted each year and as I got more older and more literate, he sometimes asked me to proof read them.  They had gloves for all different purposes.

Last night as I was cooking, I felt that an appropriate glove on my left hand might help.  It would offer protection from say a knife, when you were cutting something, a sure grip when you picked something up and as I cook using an AGA, which has lots of hot bits, perhaps it would be insulated.

I can’t be sure, but I think Dunlop had a lightweight industrial glove all those years ago!

But something like that would certainly help!

  1. If you find a suitable glove, I would be interested to hear about it, I have this problem and the scars to prove it. being able to put something into the oven and lift it out again safely would be good, except of course, I cant lift anything with any weight to it either
