'The House at Pooh Corner' last chapter, which our father was unable to finish (he used to read us stories)... and I avoided altogether when reading to Nick... and more recently, at a breakfast meeting at the British Embassy, caused a catch in the voice of our defence attache... and brings a smile and a tear even as I write :)

Yes, the sentiments are similar - the feelings we have on looking back at the distant past. Having said that, I am very aware of the pitfalls and of falling into the trap that tells us "Those were the good old days."


i wonder what thoughts Alastair would have about his liaisons
with Robin (the girl from Boston) and Toni ? (the girl from California) over 50 years ago
now ??
Trouble is time seems to go so much quicker than the halcyon days
of the early seventies !!
