Childhood best friends
I think my earliest best friends were Brian, who lived along a street just up from our house, Peter who lived opposite us on the main road, Edward who lived further on from Brian and David, who was further down the road from our house. Later on, about the time that I went on to grammar school, another Brian came on the scene and most Sundays, apart from in summer time, we would meet at one or another of our houses and play games – board, card, etc. – remember, no television in those days so you made your own entertainment. Later still, Vance who I met at a local Youth Club and I spent many days cycling around all over.
