I bet Josie will be rapt you shared this with WW!! lol!
I can absolutely identify with this. I was about 19 in 1968 and hitchhiking around Europe with a friend that summer all the way from Australia. We didnt spare the expense though when we shared a mini with 2 others to do a quick circuit of UK also. Seems like 100 years ago now!

You look lovely Josie! I was 16 in the October of that year, and wore skirts just as short!

hiya cheryl b,my husband and i (sound like the queen dont i) had loads of minis in the early 70s but they were 60s minis wish we had them now,we once had one that was 1963 the ignition was on the dash but the start button was on the floor so you had to press the start button to start it ha ha wish we still had it.

thanks irene, i did have a couple of skirts a wee bit shorter but they were crepe matearial and when washed shrunk a bit , so i had to really pull them when ironing them to try and get them a bit longer hence shorter than short, hee hee.

You know what they say Josie, if you'v got it, flaunt it... and you'v certainly got it! your beautiful.

Comments by John, 17th July 2010  
I'm back again Josie, only kidding and pulling you're lovely leg, most gardens had chicken wire in those days and was very affective to keep roamming dogs out. If the gardens as good as you look it's beautiful.
