Great pics everyone, thank you all.
Particular thanks to Bobby for the photo of St Nic's. If I had to pick my favourite place in our beautiful city it would probably be St Nicholas' church garden.

Pocohantas, Yorktown, Va. - a little history about her....
Pocahontas was captured during Anglo-Indian hostilities in 1613, and held for ransom. During her captivity,
she converted to Christianity and took the name Rebecca. When the opportunity arose for her to return to her people,
she chose to remain with the English. In April 1614, she married tobacco planter John Rolfe, and in January 1615,
bore their son, Thomas Rolfe.
In 1616, the Rolfes traveled to London. Pocahontas was presented to English society
in hopes of stimulating investment in the Jamestown settlement. She became something of a celebrity, was
elegantly fêted, and attended a masque at Whitehall Palace. In 1617, the Rolfes set sail for Virginia,
but Pocahontas died at Gravesend of unknown causes. She was buried in St George's Church, Gravesend
Kent, in England.

First day at Senior school for eldest Grandchild, Georgia.
Unfortunately, a broken arm excludes the school dress uniform but the kilt looks nice albeit wearing it a month earlier than regulation.

Beautiful photo of Georgia, Ken, but oh! dear, that poor broken arm :(
I'm sure teachers will make allowances for her condition, Ken :)
Have a good first day Georgia :D

Ken - Lovely photo of your Granddaughter Georgia (unusual name)
Sorry about her broken arm and sincerely hope she is right handed;
however, I'm sure she has managed to devise ways and means to
manage. Wishing her a great school term.

Thanks Ladies, day one went fine.
The school is a C of E , Diocesan school with a Christian ethic. They have a strict uniform code which at this time should be a dress in a similar pattern to the kilt. The dress should be worn with black tights, neither of which Georgia can manage.
Despite my Daughter ( an ex pupil ) having an email exchange with the Head of Year prior to school he still phoned Georgia's Dad three times yesterday for an explanation as to why her uniform was not in code. Debs called an old friend who is now the Head of School and explained to her the difficulties Georgia would have wearing a brace with which the dress could not be worn or the difficulty of toileting wearing tights with a broken arm .
She responded about her male colleague " Stupid Man" :D Ken

Patricia, Georgia , her Dad wanted a boy, George :lol: Thankfully it wasn't Mississippi!!!!
Yes , she is right handed. The biggest disappointment was that she was selected for the Senior Squad in our Swimming Club.

More great pix, thanks people.
And thanks once more Bobby for more pics of St Nics'. Brings back memories of many pleasant lunchtimes spent there with a butty and a book; a little oasis of peace in the middle of the busy business quarter. Also nice pics of Exchange flags - worked there in 69/70.

It's the 1970's

You are getting all your clobber ready for a big night out discussing with your mates what to wear like all us blokes regularly do.

Vest - check
Underpants - check

Geoff enters the room showing his new underpants. I'm not sure about the colour though, I also mention to Geoff that I'm not sure that jump suit is going to work for me tonight. Think I'll stick with my vest and new underpants.

Hmmm!! I need to dress to impress now.

OK! Think I'm sorted. I'm gonna rock tonight !!! :)
