Hi Gerard, you can see your house on this picture. Did you see the other one of my Dad in his 'Home Guard' uniform?

Hiya Ste, what a fine show, nice to see a garden as it should be not all concrete like they are today.

Hey Janice, what was Dads garden, probably is all concrete now, I know she totally got rid of all the side gardens and built a huge 2 car garage. It's ugly now, glad we have loads of pics to remember how beautiful it used to be..

This is a lovely photo Ste & Janet. What a lovely man your Dad was and always had a word with everyone he met up with. Also remember how he loved his garden.
