Australia in the 20th Century

A man came past the door with two books in a basket on the front of his gopher. He wanted to sell the books. One was called Australia in the 20th Century and the other one was a book of photographs.

I already had the first one and I didn’t need the second, so I said, ‘thank you, but no’.

He was sad and looked it. Then I felt sad. Then he suddenly took off in the gopher and called back to me, ‘we all have our troubles’.
