      Sammy was one of Blagdons great personality’s. He used to have a saying if several boys turned up together to deliver papers. He would say “one boys a boy, 2 boys half a boy and 3 boys no boy at all”, so 2 of us would have to go before he would give the papers out. He used to be handy with hair clippers as well.
