|Scotty and Booboo's Bicycle 1963|
So that we each could have a bike that summer , Mum went looking to find something for Sis and I .
|CCM circa 1950 for Sis|
All of us had a great summer that year . My friend and I would ride along the highway west out of Mattawa collecting pop bottles discarded into the ditch from passing cars . By the time we reached the Wonderland (an old dance hall 12 miles out of town) , we had enough to trade in at 2 cents a bottle . We each bought a 10 cent Popsicle as a reward for several hours work and a lot of pedalling uphill. It was an easier trip home which we managed in just under an hour .
