If there is outdoor seating you may see me there.
I think I seriously slipped up when I named a topic for the current photo comp.
I should have said 'Public Seating in Hyndburn' so that I could have more choice and know what they look like before I go.

His mum is keeping very well, and is still as bright as a button.

Thanks for that Rindy
It is lovely to be fondly remembered
brought a tear to my eye and a smile to my face

The car was an Austin 7 - reg HG114 and he rigged it to run off paraffin during petrol rationing

I'm glad I posted it then.

It was funny, you having mentioned it here. I said we know someone in common, meaning you, and the first words out of his mouth were that you were his first sweetheart, aged seven.

I heard all about your mum and dad's cars wheel's, which had obvoiusly impressed him, and that there was only room in the back seats for you and him. I think he meant as passengers, I hope you weren't up to any mischief at that age.
