Recent Visitors

Understandably there have been many visitors to the boat in the last two months that we have been back down on the southern Grand Union. It really is lovely to see everyone but it did get a bit overpowering and very tiring. So the solution was to keep a diary. This had to include not just friends and family but nursing staff from hospice and my GP surgery even the GP`s visits had to be listed. Also added to the list were me and Jaq`s trips out for instance several trips to the local cinema and various lunch dates plus my trips out sourcing bits and bobs for the little boat jobs I was slowly completeing.

It works just fine and now at a glance we can see if a particular day or run of days is becoming exceptionally busy. Having said that it`s always nice to see folk but some pre contact would be most appreciated.

All the pictures of me are no more than two weeks old so don't shy off thinking I'm wasting away and you're likely being greeted by some version of me from the past. Yes a little bit of weight loss but nothing drastic.

Looking good, Les.
Isn't it lovely to know people care? And, mate, you and Jaq make it easy for people to show that they care about you - your openness and sharing about what you have been through and are going through generates the love and caring - it's what could be called reciprocity: now isn't that a great word!?
Biggs hugs to you both, and much love, friends, M&Dxox

Family photos, always important to have, and keep.
When those family members expire or perhaps move to great distances away,
something "you" recall when they are in the photograph with
you allows time and distance to disappear.
They are right there, with you. Right now!

Mind the latest collection could be determined as
perhaps "mug" shots, but even mug shots have
Just look at the police.
