Catching up after a few days away.

It must have been difficult for your family to see someone leave for the states. Certainly travel between the continents wasn't as frequent as it is today. I feel fortunate that the EMBLOS has been able to visit her home annually since we married.

Cheers.

Randall: the EMBLOS is very lucky in having such a generous husband. All of us have visited the States frequently but I only remember my aunt returning home to England once.

Lovely...and yes, I see the retreat to the bed and phone in many old folks I know. Until the phone confuses me too much.

Pat said...

Maggie: every ten years I think one should be prepared to change one's life style. I've got one looming:)

Gorgeous photo, and that gown...Balmain!
Yes, she sounded like quite a gal. Must have had quite a following!!

Kanani: oddly only Naomi had heard of her.
She looks a little like Kay Kendall in that photo.
