B'e neach-taisbeanaidh às a'cheann a tuath agus pupaidear Punch agus Judy a bh'ann an Uilleam Hay. Bha e bho theaghlach fhèistearan siubhail; thòisich a shìn-seanair, Iain Moireasdan, ann an soirceas Pindar nuair a bha an soirceas air chuairt ann an Cataibh agus bhiodh a sheanair, Uilleam Donnchadh Moireasdan, agus bràthair athar, Donnchadh Moireasadan, a'taisbeanadh chuirmean-cluiche Punch agus Judy ann an Inbhir Nis agus mu chuairt. Bha na Moireasdanaich ainmeil cuideachd airson an sgilean a thaobh a bhith a'seatadh chnàmhan.

Anns an earrann èisteachd seo, tha Uilleam a'bruidhinn mu dheidhinn cuid de na cuirmean-cluiche beaga.

An ma grandfather used to pull some smart tricks too, when ye think on it too. Ye'd never get away with it now. There's ma Auntie Mary, ma Auntie Lily, ma mother, Auntie Lizzie, oh there was quite a few o them, an they used to be all in, an all the people used to go outside an he says, ma grandfather used to say, 'Come along now' he says 'Sixpence it is tae see these women standing on the stage wearing nothing but a smile.' Course, every-, all the men used to be charging in, payin their tanner, an ye used to sit wi them, standin in rows an rows. Now the police came up one day - somebody reported us - an the police came up one day, an we used to believe it wurselves cause we were only kids when we used to hear all this, ye know? But the police came in anyway, wi all these police women, an they were goin to arrest them all for indecent exposure an everything. An we was hearin the men coming out, an the boys that were standing in the queue were saying, 'Great! Smashing! Ah'm goin to get some more money an come back in.' Now they were done, ye see? But they weren't going to tell their mates that. 'We're done. They're gonna get done.' This was their idea. An away they'd go. Course everybody'd be queuing up then an they'd come oot, 'Aw smashin! Lovely! Great!', an, of course, they were pilin them in. So the bobbies came up anyway this day.

Now, we had what we called the 'Balloon Burster' an that was a big board, an there was holes in it, where ye could kick yer ball, football, through, but on the balloon, on this board, was to hook on balloons an ye could kick a ball an burst a balloon - ye got a coconut. Or ye could kick it through the hole, in the board, an that was a goal, an ye got a coconut. Well, we used to call that the 'Balloon Burster', but it meant the holes as well. Well, ma grandfather had a board, like that, at the back o the stage, an behind that he had his tarpaulin, ye know, his curtains an that, an to keep within the law, he used to get ma sisters (now, course wi nobody ever saw them, it was all wimen), they used to go in there, naked, but they used to stick their head through this board an whenever the - whenever ma grandfather used to pull open the curtains, 'Now you're going to see the big Mahoopa smile', ye open the curtains, all they saw was their heads. Ye see? Well, they were done, but he was tellin the truth. So, of course, when the bobbies came in, they'd a bit of a controversy, an they'd talk aboot it, an there didn't seem much they could do aboot it [Laughter] ye know? We used to get off wi murder, man, in them days, but ye'd never get away wi things like that now
