Summer of '62
My sister has been sorting through some boxes belonging to our mother and found this 1962 cutting from the local newspaper, showing the country dance group I belonged to at school. I am in the front row, third girl from the right. I well remember those skirts with the petticoats that we used to stiffen by soaking in a mixture of sugar and water. I am not so hot on remembering the names of all the girls in my class. To think that we are all now drawing our pensions!
