Junior recalls the old school bus from Langwarrin to Frankston.
I remember me adult schooling
was in Frankston High here, which's now the TAFE, that was Frankston High
School. There was a school bus coming in but that was for the general public
and school kids, and I can remember that'd be packed and you'd be sort of
hanging out the door type-thing. It was rattlin' n' rollin', mud-guards were
virtually held together by fencing wire n' stuff like that.
I often tell people that n' they say, "That's the way it was?" and I
say, "Yeah, that really was the way it was".
I often think me concentration levels, I'm more worried about what I'm gonna
do next. Even in my latter years, I sort of worry, oh, I've gotta do this. Now
I've got me self out of the habit. Do what you've gotta do today, don't you
know. Tomorrow will come. Sun'll come up and the paper'll land on the front
See that's why I'm bald. Cos you see, you can't grow grass on a busy street.
