To Aunty Margaret for her 90th Birthday
We left Clitheroe and headed to Stafford, had we been on Eva at Dolbeare we most probably not made the two hundred and thirty mile mile journey but being a hundred miles ........ no excuse. Bear drove and caught all the roadworks on the M6, I took pictures of our last collection of photographs so I can store them all together on an external hard drive. During the three hour journey I completed the task, 989 pictures taken.
Worth every second as we surprised the lovely lady and I caught this snap of the man and his aunt, smashing. Ruth and John (daughter and son-in-law) were there and later some neighbours came in. A jolly time, much reminiscing and laughter. Just a few of Aunty Margaret’s cards.
Knowing how much I love and miss having a garden, Aunty took me for a turn around hers and treated me to picking a few tomatoes, such an adorable aroma – fresh, juicy, fat plum tomatoes as well as a handful of Tom Thumbs.
Bear and his Aunty Margaret (mum’s sister). We had a wonderful visit but all too soon the hours had sped by. I drove us back and Bear felt a bit miffed that my journey only took an hour, forty. We stopped for a quick supper and headed to Tesco as we have Joe et al coming to visit us on Eva on the morrow. All tucked up by eleven o’clock.
ALL IN ALL A GRAND LADY
A REALLY GREAT DAY
