A day not to forget

Gentlemen,
I hope you have all bought the over priced items required to give to the
one that brought you into the world, no working on engines today we all have
to be good little boys.
Off to see mine this afternoon and reassemble what ever has come apart in
her hands :-))

Regretfully mine has long passed away (in the early 1960's) but we had a quick trip up to Hull and back this morning to pick up a load of kitchen units that we bought on ebay. Looks like the garage conversion is looming ever closer....

Gentlemen,
Memories are just as good as the real thing, I had to explain to my Mother yesterday that just because it is a shiny disc a DVD free with a newspaper will not work in a CD player, she does her best to understand but I think she is rapidly reaching her Techno limit :-))

A few years ago my son (31 now) told me rather diffidently that he was seven or eight before he realized that people could see in colour before the Second World War.
Why? Well, all the movies were black and white and it stands to reason they'd be in colour if people could *see* colours!
My mum died over ten years ago now and was pretty competent technically - but only by acute observation. She had no background knowledge of the physical world and could be stumped by the simplest things. She could do eighty words a minute on an old upright Imperial, but if the ribbon inverted, she was stumped!
She was a great worrier - could have worried for England if she'd been taller. Hazel & I used to go off to the TT on Thursday after telling her we were going on Friday. She used to get quite steamed up when we'd phone in to say we were there when she thought we were still packing the bike. Deprived her of a good day's worrying - pah!

Kim Siddorn.
