As these stories have come to my memory, I realise how lucky I have been throughout my life and how fortunate I am to have the time to write them down. I have, in recording them, relived the time of my life that they cover and, in my thoughts mostly, kept company with old friends and relatives.
It follows my life from starting school to my retirement; how I adapted in my life, police encounters as a teenager, dating, marriage, traveling, becoming a father, divorce and then the blending of two households.
I hope you will enjoy this book; my journey, my memories, my life.
Keeping in touch and getting money out of the bank, only two of the things we did differently back in 1976. This book is not meant to give you travel information, as what I am writing about happened forty years ago. I write about the difference in travelling back then to travelling now, our holiday was quite normal for us and no real hardship. Our caravan was at least fifteen years old, our car been with us five years. I cover emergency repairs to both our car and our caravan.
