    Star gaze lily,

    It was often exciting overly at times mainly because I was not intimidated by those who told me "that is dangerous"? In the Middle East and Africa men would land from the troopships and then never leave Base Camp for two or more years, they had to nail me down to keep me in, life is what you make it.

    The Nuffield Club in London was often full of girls from the shows, no show on Sundays, they came in and lifted our spirits and being a dancer I got to dance with some of the best, they let their hair down as did we young soldiers and my lips remained sealed about them all though I would smile when a carry on film was showing or some old black and white. One reason I am not on Flat face book or twittering and boring is because what happens between young men and women should stay in the memory and not be bandied about for all to hear or see.

    Well that is my way, Frank.

    I love snowdrops, for-get-me-nots, lily of the valley and a pink rose called new dawn, they all remind me of my mum.

    I have a Leycesteria Formosa (flowering nutmeg)  which reminds me of my lovely late FIL he gave me a cutting from his garden many years ago when we lived in our 1st house. The one I have in my garden now is a cutting of that cutting! I would be so upset if I ever lost it. Its quite large now, and have taken several cuttings from it. Its not in flower yet but look forward to this years ones.

    Lovely story Frank and so nice that you and your wife made such a good partnership both on and off the dance floor.  Agree totally with your moral standing on FB. Etc, I only hope I can instil those values enough in my boys, it just doesn't seem 'cool' to be private these days image
