Hi Tommy, as November 5th approaches, I thought it might be a good idea start to November with Penny for the guy story.
"Penny for the guy" 1960's style.
Every year as bonfire night approached, as a 12-13 year old I would go out with my guy to raise some cash for fireworks. I would scrounge some old clothes (well any that weren't being worn at the time) stuff them with whatever I could lay my hands on, then I would buy one of those horrible cheap cardboard masks from Jones's Toy shop to make the face. The mask's were held on with a thin elastic strap behind the head, and they came in really horrible colors like red or green.
Once I had built the guy, I was off to my favorite pitch, "Duggouts" doorway. Duggouts (
I remember one year while standing in my doorway, I kept hearing money being dropped, that distinct chink sound when a coin hits the pavement. Everybody would stop and look around, then someone would discreetly pick up a coin, then it all went quite. Ten minutes later another coin would hit the ground, chink. Again everybody would stop to look around for the coin. This went on for about an hour, until I saw a smiling face at a window, it was Terry Bransfield throwing coins out of his bedroom window then hiding behind the curtains as a joke, just to see what reaction he got. Nice one Terry.
As bonfire night approached, us kids would get busy hunting to find wood or anything else we could use to build our bonfire in the back garden. 9 times out of 10 it rained before bonfire night so we sometimes had a struggle to get the fire going on the night, but once it was lit it was a sight to behold. It's a wonder the house didn't catch fire as the flames were so high (I suppose they were especially big flames to me as I was the smallest). When the flames died down we would all put our potatoes into the red ashes stand around until they were cooked. I can taste them now.
