With the Cannon Hill under snow and the moon shining which it always seemed to do on those cold still cloudless nights we could see for miles. Us young ones felt so very safe - there wasn't even a question about bad guys being around In those days - they were only in the movies.
There was one year when the thaw didn't come for over a month and the hill was pure ice - I ended up in the swing park a few times and I'm sure a few others might have hit that wall behind the Castle Craigs. Magic memories there and it brought our woodwork skills to the fore too 'cause we made our own sledges didn't we? That stood me in good stead during our early years in Oz when we were chasing a dollar - maybe I should have signed all the things I made. Ermmm that's another wee story for later. Hughie
