Divorce was unusual and friends were allowed to stay during troubled family times.

The Royal family - lived up to see even a glimpse. Didn't understand Korea and Vietnam wars association with New Zealand.

Mentions President Kennedy.

The Pill being introduced.

When going overseas joined Hamilton Group to learn some Maori dancing and culture to have some knowledge. Had Maori friends but didn't label them separately in anyway.
