Something is definitely working. I'm hazy about links but will settle fot this just now. Somewhere in cyber space is another site with a pretty green top - wave if you see it. Some months back my eldest son said I should look at blogs and introduced me to Random acts of Reality, Jonny B's Secret Diary and Zinnia Cyclamen which I - knowing him - thought was about real ale. I was hooked and then discovered Universal Soldier, Growing up and Gyuana Gyal -forgive the spelling GG I'm scared of leaving the page to check. I enjoyed everything about it especially the exchange of comments. Having spent enough time at the bottom of slush piles it was heartening to get feed back.
Everybody has a story and some of you were kind enough to express interest in mine
hence Past Imperfect. To start with I am going with Zinnia's suggestion which is to invite you to ask a question and I will do my best to answer as honestly as possible.
I must just tell you in yesterday's Telegraph there was an article by Alison Palmer about US author Terry Hekkerwho wrote a book about her successful marriage and then th b....r left her on her 40th wedding anniversary for a younger woman. And here am I spouting off about my marriage. 'Would you do that to me?' I asked MTL. 'No.'he said, 'You are my dolly bird!'

Looking forward to reading you story Pat. It is so easy to get hooked on reading blogs, most of the time your reading about other peoples lives day to day and you get to realise that other people round the world are just like you. Thats sweet that your his Dolly bird.

Hi Pat! Congrats on the blog, I really look forward to reading it ;o)

My question is: will you tell us about your amazing True Love story?

Anonymous said...

I am very intrigued by your profile which says about being with your true love after a separation of 30 years. You opened the floor to questions so this is mine. Please can you tell us/me the story behing this?

US I'm hoping one day I'll have writing things at the side like links and photos but hey Rome wasn't built in a day.
GU I think it's sweet too.
kath I expect the story to unfold prompted by questions

Annie said...

Hi Pat! Congratulations! How come you and your True Love were separated for so long?

PI said...

Hey Pat!!! I'm so excited to finally be able to leave a comment on your blog that I had to split an infinitive. I think. Never was much good at grammar. Little Women - Alan Bennett - yes!! Your eldest son reads my blog? That feels like a compliment. But, hey, this is supposed to be about you. So here's a question: national photographic model, what did that job entail? I have many more questions but that will do for now. A very warm welcome to blogland!

Zinnia I have been thinking all weekend and have decided, in order not to go bananas, I will begin at the beginning and hope people will stay with it.

Zinnia Cyclamen said...

Sounds like a fine plan to me. I'll be here!

That is so adorable, you're his dolly bird. I find it scary, this marrage thing, couples grow old together, then he leaves her. And she's alone.

PI said...

GG Yeah I know. I think I'd probably do MTL in first!
