Memorys

Late entry today,but better late than never ,I have been busy scanning pictures today! or should I say trying to.I would scan them then save them ,but not in a folder that my journal was aware of !In the end I sent out an S.O.S. Next door  to the ever patient  Glynn,who listened to what I said went click ..click ..click ,!and there it all was !!Whoa !says I, what did you do ?SHOW ME!!he did and here is the result !  (hope I can do it again !!)

I dont want this to be a sad entry,I just want to share with you  It was Micks birthday yesterday ,and if he had'nt died aged fourty four ,twenty three years ago,He would have been sixty seven ,I can't believe that !I have many emotions still about him ,of course !the sad thing is he didnt live to see what amazing adults his children turned out to be ,and even worse ,he never met any of his wonderful grandchildren ,He missed weddings and christenings ,I went to all these things alone ,oh I was'nt alone ,but I didnt have beside me the one person, who these happenings ,would have shared what I was feeling .I've smiled my way through ,the years and folks think with time ,your over it ,and of course you are ,just sometimes ,Im crying inside .So ....these are a few pictures I found ,I think the one on the ship might have been taken in Southend ,perhaps Jeannette could enlighten me ,is/was  there a likely vessel ,moored there ?I know the other one was taken in Bagshot in Surry,on a hill called High Curly ,and the rest are self explanatory (oh Jean were we ever that young ?)

So now I know how to scan pictures onto the journal ,I shall be adding some family favourites,Checking this over I am struck by how Matthew (my youngest daughter Kates son) is like his Grandad .I had to search for the photo albums  had'nt seen them since we moved so when I found them,and while Maurice was in bed today ..he's gone off to work now ..I've had  a lovely time looking through them . I'm off now to wash the dinner pots and watch some tele',So folks enjoy what is left of the day .

                       With Love Jan xx

It's good that you have such good memories of the two of you. Great pictures. I think if you really love someone that love never ends. Helen

It's so sad when we lose our loved ones. Mick has probably been watching your life progress from heaven, I like to think so anyway. They're lovely old photos. Must dig out some of mine to show you one day. Have a good evening. Jeannette.

Hi Jan, a smashing entry today.  I love to look at old photos, You made a lovely couple, so young and full of hope. Oh where did youth go to?  My own wedding photos look so dated now.  Maybe I should dig out an album or two and see what I can find hidden away...lol! :o)

Lovely pics Jan, I love looking at those b/w ones - so nostalgic! Your dresses look lovely too.  Interesting how the wedding dresses change in fashion over the years.  Perhaps we should all have a wedding day photo on our journals - I would love to see other peoples.

"he didnt live to see what amazing adults his children turned out to be ,and even worse ,he never met any of his wonderful grandchildren ,He missed weddings and christenings"

Loved seeing these photos Jan. . .what a handsome couple you both are.Its sad that Mick missed out on so much with his kids and Grandkids and weddings but nice you have him in in your heart . . as long as you remember him he will never be too far away from you all. I believe you can be in a room full of people at  weddings and the like Jan and still feel lonely as you long to share it with a special someone who should be there too.
Glynn next door is a good neighbour to have . .lol.

Wonderful entry jan :o)  thank you so much for sharing it with us...He'll have been there looking down just like my dad...Dad only met 4 out of the 11 grandchildren my mum has...He never met any of mine or my younger sisters children or saw us get married but i do believe he looks down on us all...I like to think he's my guardian angel and helps me cope with my 2 lads :o)   Caff xxxx
