Very true David,

When I was a lad I was in the local church choir (duck and wait for comment from DBC50). During the summer, weddings were a lucrative source of income for a nine year old as we were paid 2/6(12.5p) for each one we sang at. Over the road from the church was Hornes toy and wool shop where a Matchbox car could be bought for 2/-(10p). No prizes for guessing where my earnings went.

Those were the days!
