Holidays seemed to be mainly a time for growing your hair. All three Scotch boys at the right would fail inspection on the first day back if they didn't get it cut. (Left to right: Phillip Spicer, Stephen Spicer, and David Wells).

We spent holidays at Mt Eliza. But at various times I got to go away to holiday houses of:

  • Anders McDonald's - at Cowes. The McDonald's had the latest Holden Premier wagon, and I was (easily) impressed. We spent heaps of time listening to Brian Cadd, and riding an Italian Vespa motor-bike (we must have been ahead of our time, as Vespa's were the ultimate in dorkyness back then).

  • Peter Olorenshaw's parents - at Healesville. The farm backed onto Badgers Creek, and we spent time riding ponies, walking and playing table tennis. Geoff and Pam Olorenshaw were his parents - other family members were Guy Olorenshaw, Jody Olorenshaw, and Campbell Olorenshaw.
