A penny for your thoughts? Pennies to play with, pocket-money to spend. Wandering across Beverly Brook, a way to school and to The Pictures on Saturday morning. Sometimes to buy a balsa-wood glider. Weekends, helping the milkman deliver milk, eggs, butter and cheese. 0n the electric milk-float from the Petersham Dairy, in the frosts around Christmas, in the coolness of a hot summer morning. During holidays helping out on the sports ground where I lived; digging, raking, mowing, riddling, driving the tractor. Sometimes I'd be given some shillings for helping out.
