This morning I got the following email:-
Hi Pat. I came across your blog when researching my family on the web.
Im in my early 30's and now i have 2 children, have suddenly become
desperate to learn all about "where i came from"! Rather strange, but
there we go. I loved your post about Mick Dillon, back in 2006, when he
died. He was my great uncle and Dennis, my grandad. If i dont find much,
im just happy that i read your lovely memories of them. I dont remember
my grandad, but what you said about him, made me smile (and want to cry
a little!) Thank you! Nicola x.
It took me a while delving in the archives until I remembered to use Internet Explorer. What I wrote then was quite true but the memories of the fifties came flooding back and I was able to share some of them with Nicola.
This isn't the first time this has happened and so far I have been fortunate in the feed back.
Now of course I am way, way behind with what I meant to do today. That's Blogging for you.
