I recently read a book abot a tavelling woman,she wrote about her childhood,her family and how they used to earn a living.It made me see them in a different light,they did live in a caravan drawn by horses and used to have regular stopping points and work routines.she admits as in anyway of life they too had their criminals but I warmed towards her.

The big poblem now is all those stopping points have long gone.

She tried to live in a house and it nearly was the end of her.


Den I feel sure that the life your woman led is nothing like this Dale farm shower. Some Gypsies worked on farms, fruit picking etc and had an Annual circuit and made a good living an contribution to society.


I started out with nothing and Iv'e still got most of it left
