I remember the Peter and Jane books at primary school, now as an adult thinking back on them there was something slightly creepy and not quite right with the family set up in those books , everyone was insanely happy , The father still wore his shirt and tie when working in the garden even the grandfather when the family went to visit his farm had a shirt and tie on and the mother was a Doris Day clone always wearing an apron  :D

They had one of those varnished wood motor boat launches. I was very jealous.

No, but I forced myself to suffer through Playboy a few times.

Me to - I grew up thinking that all women had paper staples on their bellys.

I wrote a story for Jackie won and got a postal order for 5 bob. 1961 I think ..they had competitions problem page fashion pages etc  every girl loved it and we all used to buy different comics mags and swap so got to read them all eventually. i also love/loved  all the Marvel comics.. a boy in my street gave them to me when he had finished reading them every week . I had hundreds of them  in a large box but when we moved my mum threw them all out without asking me imagine the value these days .

Kes by Barry Hines. Viking's Dawn by Henry Treece and Out of the Silent Planet by C.S. Lewis. I hated that character Chicken Licken from the Janet & John book. He had delusional paranoia, running around telling everybody that the sky was going to fall down.
