I would like to share that when a young lad, I and my younger brother would play truancy from school spending the majority of our time and days between the palladium and the quay usually nicking a herring or two to take home for tea. During a six month period, we spent less that a week at school running wild while waiting to come to Canada. I am not proud of the fact, though I must admit we learned all the ins and outs of the buildings and roads in order to successfully allude to truancy officer on his peddle bike.
