No I was NOT, I either walked on my own or my father picked me up/dropped me at school on his motorbike. I wouldn't even of thought of doing that. I loved school and was not a trouble maker, although once two girls decided to follow me up the road trying to get me to fight by trying to kick me, I kept on walking, perhaps they were your girls ?No, but are you one of the children that used to tease my guard dog at the top of the road about 1971?
Well I can honestly say that I do not remember seeing a dog on my way to or from school neither do I remember seeing any trouble makers. As soon as school finished I was on my way home fast. My family then and now loveSheila,
I have to say that we had nothing but trouble with the schoolchildren from that school. Every night when school closed I had to close the gates as they stood and teased the dog because I used to chain him up and close the gates when school finished. I even wrote to the head mistress complaining and warning her of the danger of what was going on. She wasn't interested and more or less said so. So I cured it myself and used to open the gates and let him off the lead. He was too well trained to go outside the yard no matter what (unless told to). So he just sat there and watched them all go past. It's amazing how quiet they could be when they wanted to be.
