Rag and Bone Man Everytime I heard the Rag & Bone Man`s bell I used to run and hide! My mum used to yell "He`s coming... have you been good or I`ll swap you for a balloon" I nearly died of fright one day when we were out and his cart turned the corner... I had nowhere to hide. To this day it`s still a running joke in our family when anyone here`s a bell sound outside. A`int so funny when I`m in my 30`s!
