Nanny Goodall and my sister Bev

This is my Dad's mother Lucy and is she is holding my sister Bev. There don't seem to be any earlier photos of her. I remember a very kind lady and I have very warm memories of her. She loved animals. For some reason I have this one memory of her feeding oats to a bucket of mussels. Don't ask me where that comes from but those I knew were for the cooking pot. She had a white dog called Tony who is in a lot of our old photos.

This is my Dad's father and Lucy's husband, Thomas Charles. One of the things I remember about him was that he had a work shed down at the bottom of the garden. I remember looking at him working with a hammer in his hands. He was a blacksmith at the Sunbeam Motor Factory in Wolverhampton, Staffordshire, England, and passed away when I was very young. I wish I had gotten to know him better but I do love this photograph of him.
