Day 316~366

Today is armistice day, and a day to remember my grandad who served in the RE’s in WW1. He signed up with his best friend, who got killed nearly at the end of that war. I’ve written about this before so won’t dwell, but wanted to make a picture that isn’t sad but is in memory of him. My grandad would tell me bedtime stories when he babysat me when Mum worked nights, and I remember him for that.  Although he died when I was very young, only 6yrs old, I have lovely memories of him looking after me.

Todays crystal ball shot is of a fence down the path I walked home after dropping my car off at my local garage, as I had a very loud expensive sounding noise coming from the rear wheels. Luckily it was something to do with a brake plate becoming detached and only cost me £10 when I went to pick it up. 🙂 result!

  1. Lovely shots, and a great tribute to your Grandad.
    I wish I could get brakes fixed for £10. Almost worth driving to the north-east to save money!
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. Nice tribute. My grandfather fought in North Africa during WWII and some of the stories he told me were horrific, but I think it’s important to try and keep these memories alive so that history doesn’t get repeated.
