well they had what they called the week loaf it was a very long sandwich loaf a real big one it lasted a week, and Ferrington fascinated me because where we went there were no houses, you never saw any houses they were all in the scrub, but every gate post had a box on it with the lid up and if he only had bread for them he never slowed down he just threw the bread into the box and the lid would come down but he’d pull up if he had mail.
