Postscript

A postscript to the last post....a comment by another Trelawnyd-ite forwarded on to me this evening

" He usually has a box of dog biscuits in that basket ready for any passing dog walker...he's such a character, he makes me laugh...when I had finish my chemotherapy and my hair was just growing back (you know the fledging look!) he briskly strolled past me in the village hall calling out in his booming voice..."hello flower, wow your barber is even worse than mine!" You've got to laugh! Xxx"

  2. Your tales about your village make me so nostalgic for a life I once had as a child (and didn't understand then) and hopeful that I'll find this on our newest adventure.

  3. Just to live where a man will say "hello flower" to another person wins my heart .

  12. Sometimes when you've been in a bad situation it's a welcome relief when someone skips the niceties and takes the piss instead - as long as it's in good humour of course!

  16. Once Benny Hill sang about Ernie in his milk cart. We need a new song about Gordon on his mobility scooter.
    "Gordon! He drove the fastest scooter in his vest..."

  17. He sounds like a real character and a lovely person. I'm totally jealous of your village :-)

  18. I have always said I have no intention of moving back to the UK to live - I have been gone almost 40 years at this point. BUT I do love going home and LOVE the humour. Luckily there are enough Brits out here that I get my fix though. My mom's funeral was last week and while it was sad, humour gets you through anything - and it did - which is just the way she would have wanted it. Does Gay Gordon know they wrote a song about him, by the way? Anna
