Boris made a hilarious story of this; I wish he were still here so that I could hear it again.7

I was not handicapped as most youngsters were by religious teaching at home if not directly by the parents then by Sunday school teachers.

I have sought to repay the debt vicariously by doing likewise for my own kids."24
