It's going to be a mixed bag kinda blog today....
Anyway first things first.
Thanks to a Trelawnyd resident Nev Lancelotte for allowing me to link in a video he made of Trelawnyd over two decades ago. I have placed it on Going Gently's sister blog " Trelawnyd Voices from the past"
I found the video somewhat of a bittersweet one as all but four of the characters shown have now passed on. ( If you look closely you can see Auntie Gladys complete with her Arthur Askey specs on)
But it is a wonderful little bit of social history.
The light was fading and the quality of the " snap" is somewhat poor but have a look at this
George and Mary
And compare it to this
George and Meg nine years ago
What goes around comes around
And finally......I'll leave you with this thought
I have never heard of the word "Mimsy" before
But I think it's a cracking word.
Perhaps a good name for a dog?
Aka Mrs Slocombe
" My Mimsy got a dreadful soaking this morning out in the rain
I had to stand her in front of the fire to dry off"
Oh yes! Hours of fun
