Back in the 50's my gran would give me sixpence for helping get the wood for her Aga.
That would get me into the local cinema for the afternoon matinee, abag of crisps (salt in little blue twist of paper), a tub of popcorn and a bottle of ginger beer.
Leaving the cinema with a very contented feeling with my friends.
Can't imagine where the world has gone wrong, dare not let 5 year old go to town alone these days.
I still visit local sweet shop, but have to get either soft or suck it sweets as only 4 teeth left.
But the memories are still there, cheers Colin.
