What is your earliest memory?

Steve me and Kit at Nutfield

I had to look at some old photos but actually remembered when it this photo happened. I must have been about 3 years old and my twin cousins 2 years old. We were on an excursion to a family we knew that lived in the country: mum and dad, my aunt and uncle and we kids. It was a great place to be for London kids and we were out on the common where everything was green. I am now 71 years old and my cousins 70 – how the years fly past.

Which way does the toilet paper roll go? Over or under?

Does it matter, as long as you have not forgotten to buy toilet paper. My mum and dad always had it under, but it seems everyone else has it over.

What makes you feel grounded?

Having MS and a broken leg and not being able to go places and take photos. However, I now have an electric wheelchair which is a great help. The only problem is at the moment is the weather: sleet and wet and unfriendly so another reason to feel grounded.

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?  

Walk Through Feldbrunnen

We had one day of warm spring weather last week, and I managed to get out in my wheelchair. And then I saw the alps in all their beauty. What could be better.

Daily Prompt: Blush


The only thing that might blush here is the sky. It tends to have such aspirations now and again for some reason known only to itself.

Golden Oldies do not blush, there is nothing that would give us cause to blush. We have been to most places, seen it all and our blushing mechanism has forgotten how to work. I did not even blush when I saw a live performance of the Chippendales.

It all happened many years ago, when I was a working woman. The Chippendales were on tour in Switzerland and visiting a neighbouring town. Someone mentioned it in the office and  were about 8 ladies aged from  22 to 50 that decided to organise an office excursion.  I did the organising and was the oldest of the group. .I remember my boss saying that  he had been trying to get us ladies to go somewhere together for at least 10 years and Mrs. Angloswiss managed to organise it in a few minutes. You just have to find something that is interesting.

On the evening in question, we arrived. We decided on booking front seats, which were a little more expensive, but it was not every day that you can see the Chippendales and we wanted to make the most of it. We did not really need seats and we were standing most of the time, but it was worth it. The wet look part of the show was the best. All those wet t-shirts huggig those wonderful bodies. In the break we could buy various souvenirs I still have my Chippendale Calendar somewhere in the cellar I am sure. I can imagine that the young men are now grandfathers as it happened so long ago.

Of course it was the talk of the office for many days afterwards, comparing good looks and shapes and sizes. Come to think of it I don’t thing their faces were so interesting, it was more other  qualities they had. Could they dance? Not really, but who cared. There are some moments in life that you never forget, with or without a blush.
