Oh, Joan, you were a beauty! Thank you so much for uploading!
I see a little likeness between our eyes :-) Mine are also brown :-)
So much happened in our lives.........good things, bad things.
I am born in 1930 so I was a young teener when that rotten second worldwar broke out.
And I remember the English troops, our liberators, always behaved as gentlemen
And the american troops and the Canadian troops.
One of the Canadions said to me when we had a talk in the street ( everybody was in the street) 'Watch out for the Canadian soldiers, they are bad medicine'.
I think you could say that for all soldiers in a war. Men, far from home, without a woman, fighting, loosing comrades......
And I was just 15 years old at that time.....
I had a good life, I married, I got four children. Everyting was allright, but then I began to loose. My husband died when he was 46 years old, my son died when he was 52, and last year my new partner in life (since long years) died also.
The good thing is I have three fantastic daughters and a wonderful son-in-law. :-)
Two of my daughters have divorced but have still a good relationship with their ex-husbands ( modern times) :-)
I have been mourning over the death of my mate since July, but now I am slowly coming back to normal life and to the woman I have always been :-)))
I like your last words......'where have the years gone to.....much too quickly they flew by'. It's like the beginning of a poem! :-)))

Thanks Marie.....I was a war baby...born the year before it all started.....but do remember the Americans...they used to give us as children food parcels, and me being the smallest I always ended up with the packets of salt from pototoe crisps.....all the sweets and goodies long gone.....but I proudly took it home to mum....
I have been luckier than you..I still have the love of my life Barrie..after 53 years of marraige.....he is one in a million.....we are fit and well ..and put it all down to the dancing we do six times a week....Nice to know that you are things are getting back to normal for you....
