|"I knew every single person in that school" : country life in the 1950s|
Her brother took her home from school for lunch on his bike.
" Just around the corner from us was a vineyard ..... we used to sneak up to the one that was behind us up the side road and pinch two or three bunches of grapes and this went on almost every day during the grape season until somebody saw us...... and there was a lot of shouting and yelling and we took to our heels and
never went back again".
Mother never found out.
