My eldest sister and I are travelling over to our old home town

today and will be away till 24th June. She bought me a present. See below. Said it reminded her of don I when we were young. Not that we wore shirts with peace signs on it...but close, and we didn't play guitars... she said it was the facial expressions..HMMM She is sort of right when you look at the young photo below and she got the flared jeans right. Those were great times to be young in thats for sure.

We are going over for the 40th anniversary of our dad being killed ...and also a good chance to be together. There will be three of us gathering together, out of the five of us. A shame. It could have been really good had all five of us met and it may have helped sort things out...after all it was not to be about us...but for the memory of our dad
. One other sister can't come because of exams.

Anyhow, I doubt there will be a place to blog while I am away so i hope you all stay well and keep out of mischief...or at least enjoy that mischief.

It does look like the two of you. What a gorgeous young couple you were (are).

Travel safe and enjoy being with your siblings while you remember your Dad, who died way too young.

Thanks all...Those little statues are such a treasure to me now. It is so good that someone of my sisters remembers don and i as young people, as there are few from the generation older than us left, and none close...
We were pretty good looking hey... but then were'nt we all good looking in those days...it was easy and cheap to be fashionable...
