    I loved riding my rocking horse, trike, scooter, go-cart, then bicycle!

    Had a Hills swing, canvas paddle pool, skittles, chopsticks, doll’s house, Chinese checkers, cards, & dominoes’.

    Then there were the colouring-in, & painting books, plaster of Paris mounds, plasticine, blackboard, & coloured chalk!

    Made mud pies’, & built cubbies’. Climbed tress’, had a surf o’ plane for swimming the waves’.
    Scoured rock pools, went fishing in creeks, wore cowboy outfits, & had a tent, then at 9, started riding horses’.

    It’s a wonder here was time to go to School!
