Bonzer free pdf 'I was born to make people laugh. Marry that with an impulsive nature, add to the mix an undisciplined childhood, chuck in a psyche that rebels against silly rules and, hey presto, you've produced a bloody ratbag!' - Sandy Thorne Growing up in Bald Hills near Brisbane in the 1950s and '60s, when dunnies were outside and Sunday roasts were likely to come from you own chook pen, Sandy had a great time making the most of her freedom in the glory days of the Sunshine State. But she also got into more strife than Flash Gordon. With a philandering father drifting in and out of her home life and a collection of very loyal animals as her constant companions, Sandy honed her survival skills and quickly learned how to talk her way out of sticky situations, emerging with an ability to laugh at herself (and to entertain the class in the teacher's absence). If you've ever pinched fruit, pelted rocks on people's roofs, talked about hairs in Grade 7, been expelled from school or escorted home in a police car, this hilarious memoir will be a trip down memory lane. If you didn't do any of those things, you'll still be thoroughly entertained by a bonzer adventure through childhood in a bygone era.
