My kids have been here most of the time, so we've been able to go through some of it together. Awful, no matter how we look at it though.

Over 56 years married.

Glad to hear you're still around, Davy. The Russians are failing on the battlefield so now they're targeting civilians. Underhand and vile.

I remember the warning talks (with horrible slides) at school before November the 5th. There were still injuries every year.

That's sad, Patricia. Condolences and kind thoughts to you. How are you and the family feeling?

Comment was by Stephen Brodie on November 15, 2022 at 2:31pm

Pat. Love and sympathy from us all here at AU. Thinking of you 

Comment was by Mrs.B on November 15, 2022 at 12:24pm

Just popping in to let you all know my husband, Rick, died peacefully a week ago.

Glad you're okay, Davy.

G'day one and all
How are you all.

Yes! I do read what you lot are saying on here.

Yeah still around even though a Muscovite missile explode about 800 metres as the crow flies from me and yessss I witnessed the missile just prior to it slamming into our Electrical Substation.

Ian that looks to be a very pleasant walk to take. Wondering what sort of teacake you had as it dinna look like the teacakes I am use to making.

Stephen, We use to have a similar tradition of bonfires and fireworks to celebrate originally Queen Vicky's birthday then they changed it and called it Empire day.

Yeah well like I said use to but due to both idiots and the changing attitude of people they first banned the  1d & 2d Bungers and left us with sky rockets, Catherine wheels, and all the other pretty fireworks and sparklers.
Then they banned them completely.
Talking of idiots my mate was holding a tuppenny bunger in his hand behind his back and idiot of one his younger brothers decided it would be cool to light the wick. Me mate ended up with blisters on his hand. Old metal bicycle pumps made excellent cracker guns as the took a penny bunger neatly just had to wrangle the wick through the hole at the end and add a glass marble light the wick, aim and then bang one marble sent hurtling through the air to who knows where. Me and me bro's did that, thank Tian we lived in the bush.

Ian, I enjoy reading about your "walk abouts" (and photos). And, I can hear the pride in your "voice" talking about your family, especially your grandsons. All is well.

Comment was by Ian Mason on November 14, 2022 at 4:22am

The river walk, by the little town of Hadleigh then teacakes.

I like your stories, Ian, and glad you had a nice trip!

Comment was by Ian Mason on November 13, 2022 at 8:45pm

It's always a pleasure. Went out to lunch with an aunt, the widow of my uncle John who died suddenly earlier this year. I regret very much that I/we didn't see more of them in the past. One of life's harder lessons to learn, that people can go unexpectedly. 

Great fun seeing my daughter and her family. Grandkids are truly life's dessert. Mine chatter away in a mixture of Danish and English, wanting to tell everything they experience. Of course they're contrary and difficult at times but their enjoyment of life is wonderful. The elder has seen his Dad in the garden so he wants to dig holes all the time which makes for a lot of laundry. The younger thinks he can get his way with his winning smile and puppy-dog eyes. Two delightful boys.
