About our childhood at 12 The Grove. The stories start in the 1950s. Then our children and grandchildren have their tales to tell.

"Another world, a rambling house, huge sprawling grounds."

"The rule about not picking unripe fruit, Colin says, was not a problem as there was always plenty of windfall fruit, especially half rotten ones, available to hurl at one another, or the neighbours' roofs, or their chooks, or . . . ."

"With the large dressmaking scissors he carefully cut all the curls off the top of my head, then he cut off the legs of his father's evening trousers, then he had a go at the full length curtains."

"Being in an Austin 10 - we turned right into The Grove going way too fast, the car body flexed and all the doors flew open, luckily no one fell out."

What a great read this was! Once I started I couldn't put it away. I had other things to do but just sat at the computer and reminisced with this other version of my own memories of Australian youth. At times I've lived in Adelaide and was introduced to the Banks family. It always seemed to me there was a special magic related to that house that inspired others. Was it the inspired idiocy of childhood? It well might have been! A delight to read!
