Family Snaps

Here's an old one with my sisters and brother at Gravesend in Kent with the British Fleet massing in the background. Just got a surprise phone call from my little brother John who has just found my blog and wants a name check. So there you are Bruv, not just a name check but a dubious family photo- cheesy grins all round!
Not sure why we are in Kent but maybe went to see Uncle Bill who lived in Tonbridge? Or just a day trip that went horribly wrong when we got on the train to Southend and ended up here by mistake! Who knows.
This morning I walked into town and did some shopping and did the usual snoop around the charity shops. Found a video of Jabberwocky which was Terry Gilliam's first feature after Monty Python I think? Also two badminton rackets that I discovered were ancient wooden ones and not the fibre-glass ones that Archie craves. So what do you want for two quid?! I guess we'll have to re-cycle them or turn them into fly swatters.

At first I thought it was strange that your brother did not know about your blog. Then, upon thinking about it, I realized that none of my family, except for John, know about mine. It's a wonderful photo!

Thanks Angelica. I don't think my family are into computers and the internet that much. My brother-in-law is supposed to be a big music sharer on the net but I sent him my blog address a while back and never heard a thing! I guess he was baffled by all those scratchy old records.
My little brother (not so little anymore!) has just got a broadband connection and so hopefully he will drop by here more now he knows where I am.

Hi

I'm in Manchester next week. Email me (as I lost your e-address in the big Hard Disk Fiasco of Summer) and we'll meet up. Or I'll visit you. Or something.

Just have to shake this pesky head cold first!

Better a head cold than a dodgy stomach...
Yes, Michael... I'm eating. Heck, I got hungry! Still working through whatever it is, though.
