“I loved bein’ a kid. I was one of seventeen children. We were all named Wilkinson——I suppose it was roughest on the girls, but we all got used to it in the end.”

“I was an only child.”

“I would’ve liked to’ve been an only child. That way when someone shouts Wilkinson, you know if it’s you or not. Mustn’t grumble. Our parents were the salt of the earth. Lovely people. It was just when they found a name they liked, they stuck with it.”
