Memories that never fadeI`m listening to it now, for the first time. Wonderful Lyrics.
William is being remembered on his birthday even by those who did not know him.
PS. It`s a special day for me too, the anniversary of the day Dhiren and I met in 1959.
That will make you just a bit older than I am Jimbo.Memories that never fade
I met my 'Love ' in June 1946...............................
She bought me a jam sandwich
My heart was lost forever on that day
Love does not always start with flowers ad chocolates
But -----A JAM SANDWICH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I've"inherited" a habit from my dad, who was raised during the war (or, as it was called over here, "The Emergency"!) of having either butter or jam on bread, but never both! My dad's mother needed to be a very frugal woman, and a year's supply of jam - usually blackberry because they were free - was made every year for her family.That will make you just a bit older than I am Jimbo.
There`s nothing wrong with a jam sandwich. In those days Jam will have been rationed. It was precious.
I WAS born by 1970, so I guess that means you aren't that much older than me - I was born in November of 1960.I met my love in April 1970. We got engaged ( only three weeks later but told my folks two months later) and we were married in May 1971( no shotguns required)...... I was a child bride (nearly) 18 and one month. My parents didn't approve, Mum wanted to make me a ward of court, and many shook their heads and said it wouldn't last 46 years later..... we are still together and it's his 70th birthday this week. Doesn't time fly when you are having fun?
