Family photos

November 1st, 2014 (01:50 pm)

I was going through some old photos and found these, which include some of my dad. They're from my grandparent's 60th wedding anniversary - we went to a pub/restaurant place in Hutton (where we were also temporary joined by Neil Ruddock - he wasn't part of our group, he just happened to be in the same restaurant. I only know who he was because I remember he was a sportsman who'd been on I'm a Celebrity...get me out of here shortly beforehand, so was able to look it up on Wiki - otherwise, I wouldn't stand a chance!), and then later at my aunt Lynn's house where we did a little "This is your life" to celebrate Joyce & Cyril's 60th wedding anniversary. Happy times.

Just uploaded them on Facebook and then had a little check and it turned out I'd already uploaded them onto Photobucket and shared them here under a F'lock. Re-doing the entry now with some helpful annotations for those who don't know the family...

My grandma and grandpa, with picture of her Maj. (Yes, you get a card from the queen on your 60th wedding anniversary. You have to ask for it, but...)

Hmm 2

I can see you in your dad - or possibly vice versa.

There's definitely a family resemblance. It's also in my sisters. Owes a lot to my grandpa, I think, because I can see it in Chris too.

Great looking family.

Hope you got that flower situation checked out by now. ;)
