Found myself doing a classic, involuntary Dad-ism last night. A new fish and chip van was due to call at the village. I got bored waiting and left some cash with Poll saying: "Bring back as much change as possible". The line was most commonly used by Pa when providing money to buy ices on the beach.
[The van was a fiasco. About 30-40 people were waiting in Green Hammerton but the van didn't turn up. Bert and I cycled to Kirk Hammerton, the previous stop, and bought supper there - at a time when the van should've been leaving Green! In the end the van dropped Green from its schedule all together. Really brought the village together - a bit like a long delay on public transport gets people talking to one another. Absolute hoot].
