AS long as we talk of our loved ones, they are never really gone! In lots of situations we will say something which our parents would have said (my favourite saying of my Mum's ...... I'm not buying you chocolate biscuits, you just eat them!!!!!
Have a great weekend, Anne xx

Oh, I so enjoyed this post and can just feel your love for your dad. And that photo of you as a little girl looking up at him with adoration - that says it all! Priceless!

Such lovely photos, too.


Thank you for sharing the stories of your dad. I enjoyed reading them. Your posts are a balm in a time filled with so much negative news.

Hi Lucylu,

Your dear friend, Jennifer, sent me this blog. I have browsed through your enchanting and captivating memories of your loving dad. I intend to read it again more slowly and carefully as they tell a beautiful story of proud appreciation of a loving dad and his daughter. Interestingly enough, I was also born in 1937, on 1st January at that, in another African country called Nyasaland (now Malawi) So, I can easily relate with your dad's journey. Your story would make a colourful Biography, and I encourage you to transform your writings into a BOOK.

Dearest Ron, thank you so very much for reading my post about my beloved Dad and for your wonderful response full of encouragement and compliments. I am truly flattered! It is fascinating that you can relate to my Dads life and I am sure you have a wonderful story to tell too! I would love to hear it! I will definitely think about writing a book, in fact, I would love to. Thanks again so much and all the best, Lucy xx
