Sheila we have something in common for the 10th September.
That date in 1988 was the day my son was born. †He will be 19yrs old tomorrow.
So I guess my life changed forever on that day; for the better I may add
On 10th Sept 2001, we had a wonderful party for his 13th birthday and his transition to a teenager, stretch limo and dinner at a Country House Hotel (he felt very grown up going there instead of Burger King!!).
Unfortunately the very next day, we came down to earth with a bump with the tragic events of 9/11 and unfortunately the whole world changed forever.
Theresa my brother, now dead, was also born on the 10th and my only other brother, who is still living on, the 11th. Not being an admirer of the U.S. establishment I, nevertheless, have the greatest admiration for the firemen and others who were there that day. It is still a horribly memerising spectacle.
As for the birth of my son, unfortunately it was at a time when things were not at their best for me. However, both of my children have been the best thing that ever happened to me.
I saw your son in Bristol and must say he’s a "bit fit" as they say to-day.
Don’t forget to visit. Sheila.
