My internet has been coming and going for the last couple of days, but mainly going. Then, today, when lights lit up and I wanted to catch up with blogs, I had a very kind lady sending me 24 rather hefty files with pictures of some mutual ancestors. The only trouble was that after 20 or so, the line would go down for a few minutes and then the process would start afresh. It tied my computer up completely for hours.
Anyway, here are a couple of the pictures. A portrait of a 3X G. Grandfather (disputed; in spite of having a plaque with his name on it it may be someone else), and a picture of his son, my 2G. Grandfather (not disputed).
The next picture has a couple of items of interest. One is the cats expecting a cold spell before it had happened (it has now happened – the wind is howling and it is ‘brrrr!’) and waiting for the heater to be switched on. The other fascinating thing is how these balloons, from the party way back on 22nd July, have managed to survive even after many attentions from little R. Maybe the alcohol fumes I blew into them acted as a preservative? No, wait, I hadn’t started partying yet when I blew them up!
Oh, no! There are suddenly 62 inward emails, and the line is still coming and going. If I get this posted it’ll be a complete miracle.
