Having been brought up in the Christian religion (C of E), taught me, that there were certain principles on the surface within the teachings that would hold me in good stead should I take the trouble to abide by them. 'Love thy neighbour, not to steal or lie (tax returns exempted), give succour to the poor and not to kill unless by Govt decree but despite my efforts to abide by these edicts, I must admit I have failed dismally except for 'Love thy neighbour' but not too recently.

Over the past week. I visited the vascular surgeon on Tuesday who gave me comforting news and I thanked him for doing a good job, I thought the plumber did a good job too - about six weeks back - but his pipe fixing was significantly less costly.
Tamara - Rose our gorgeous charming beautiful pretty and lovely Granddaughter was sixteen on Saturday May 2. Her younger sister has all of her hallmarks too. Tamara spent most of Saturday out shopping starting from ten minutes after our birthday card contents were revealed.
We frequently get gouged for presento's as well as Xmas with 14 G/& G G/children.
Having children means you must make provision for them and their issue well into retirement years, those who don't - end up wearing old clobber that arrived in the wardrobe more than ten years ago. Nearest and dearest keeps up with the trends and I try to fit in somehow - the sacrificial old goat, who must give and not to count the cost.
Have a loving week, Vest.
