About memories

I’m Howard Thomas – a fourteenth generation South African.
I grew up in the fifties and sixties in Johannesburg. As Dickens said, “They were the best of times, they were the worst of times.”
These are my memories – of the best and the worst.
The worst – because we were poor, times were hard and it was not a picture book childhood for me.
The best – because I didn’t know anything else. It was normal to me, and I was happy.
