I did that with my father but it was collecting scrap or delivering paint for a local firm when the petrol strike was on, think that was the 50's.

Thanks for making me laugh A Guy! My childhood dates back from the mid 50's to the early sixties. Life was far different then. Most of the people in the small farming community I grew up in didn't have much money, so we had to make due. But back then nobody ever locked their doors and us kids could roam the neighborhood without fear. Life may be far easier now, but often times I wonder it is better.

I expressed mirth in a clearly audible manner.

Thanks A Guy!

I remember the milk man. He ran over my dog Jiggers and killed him.

we used to get extra sweets by returning pop bottles to the sweet shop and getting 2 pence per bottle,

the funny thing was we were getting the empty pop bottles out of the stack of crates behind the sweet shop.

years later my mum told me that the shop keeper knew and she (my mum ) would pay for the sweets later .
not sure that taught me any lessons about honesty though!

i think it had more to do with keeping it from my dad.

Yes I remember the bounty on glass bottles. The best recycling program their ever was. No big trucks, special processing plants, separate disposal containers. The kids kept the bottles gathered up at a very low cost.

We had no computers, no TV, no Video games back in 60's and 70's. All we had was a valve radio (Bush-England). Used to listen to movie songs, programs (specially Binaca Geeth Mala by Amin Sayani on every wednesday night) on Radio Ceylon.

Kids in those days never used to say that they are bored. We used to read books and magazines, play board games like Snakes and Ladder, Playing Cards, Monopoly, Trade, and outsidegames like ball games, climbing trees, flying kites, gilli-danda, marbles, Police Thief etc. We used to dream about school vacations and plan in advance how to spend the vacations.

Those days were golden days... No worries... No tensions...

Thanks A Guy for bringing back those memories...

You're so right, bigseb. When it comes to our freedoms, many people have very short memories and totally take those freedoms for granted --- completely ignoring the fact that those rights were fought hard for, and if not protected, can be lost.
