Mum did burgers and milkshakes and lollies, in the era before fries/chips and McDonalds. Their was a pool table and my sister was quite the wizard at pool, having practiced from a young age. To the left of the shop is a hedge - that used to be a chain link fence and during a fast paced game of tiggy I slipped on the wet grass and tore open my face. What most people think is a frown line is actually a scar. Looking at the building today, I can't believe a family of four lived in the back of that shop for a really long time. It does explain why when we moved to a semi-rural block with a standard house I couldn't believe how huge it was.
Ascot (and Hendra) I enjoyed the visit. Must do it again some day.
