Our cast of characters

We've gone through all our pictures from our various journeys to Blighty, and came across only one with all of our "regulars." We thought you might enjoy putting faces to the stories, so we decided to post it here. In shoes, from left to right, are Lew (Dad), Frances (Prodigal Wife), Denis (TPT), and Jessie (Mum). The little one is Kate (Prodigal Daughter?) at six months or so. The photo was taken in front of my brother Tony's house, in Chelmsford, the county town of Essex. Not much to see there, don't stopover!

A Brit in Tennessee said...

Yes, I would have known you anywhere ;)
A lively lot I'd say, especially the young'un...and she looks sweet.

That Mum, she's a go getter !! :)

Amy said...

Your mum gives me the giggles. I'll bet she is a wicked one! LOL

The Prodigal Tourist said...

Your grace: Kate does look sweet there, doesn't she--she couldn't talk yet, we miss that!
Josephine: you recognized me without my teddy bear mask? I'm flattered.
Carol: She's in her eighties in that photo, amazing, no?
Amy--Mum definitely had outrageous moments, that's for sure.
