Day's Gone By
I haven't shown any old family photographs lately but as I am getting together with my friends later on and we are all sharing our old photos, I have been going through a thousand of them. It was like a treasure hunt. In this one I had gone back to England many, many years ago. From left to right is my Dad, that's me, my Mom, Aunty Freda, cousin Valerie and Uncle Len. Uncle Len is my Mom's brother. We are in Wolverhampton at my Aunty and Uncle's local pub. Pictures are scanned from old snapshots. This is going back a ways, at least 25 years and then some. Aunty Freda used to make the greatest scrambled eggs for breakfast. Funny what you remember. She was a lovely lady and I enjoyed being around her and my Uncle. They were a lot of fun to be with. As kids my sister and I would stay with them over the weekend and scrambled eggs was my favorite breakfast that she used to make us. She was from Scotland originally but had lived in England all her life.
