“Remember playing cricket out in the street or in the laneways with all the other neighbourhood kids back in the day?
Never had a set of stumps so we’d just paint the stumps on to an old 44 gallon drum and the bat had probably seen better days. No cricket ball but the good old tennis ball was just as good.
We’d play outside right up until the street lights started coming on and that was the time to call “stumps” and go inside for tea.”

My Dad would come out with the strap in his hand at 5pm we always had “tea” at that time. All the kids would scatter home.
Bear has a good laugh every time there is an election politicians try to get votes by promising more money for “resources” for schools. Well guys these are the resources we had it was just the desire to learn and the total love of cricket. LOL 🙂
Funny how we made Australia a great place to live without all the “resources”. We had nothing.
THEY WERE GOOD TIMES
