Butchers
The butchers were Fitzpatricks of Main St. and Smalls of Waterlane.

A cow's juice is good when she is alive or dead.
A rolling stone catches no moss.
Out of sight out of mind.
A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.
Nearly never killed the man.
Birds of a feather flock together.
Many hand makes light work
Look after the pounds and the pence will look after themselves.
More haste the lest speed.
Time waits for no man.
