Maximum temperature 13C, minimum 7C. 65 km/h SW wind. 4 mm rain measured this morning.
It has been damp and murky all day and we off out to friends in just a moment, here are a few pictures of life long before France.

David (my brother), Dulcie (my Mum), Diane and Don (my Dad).
I am the only one still alive from this family photo.
Feb 15 1953 arrival at Salisbury, Rhodesia, 7736 miles and 7½ weeks later.
Note the change of clothes!
I957 Kismet, myself and Dusky. The latter was my first pony in Rhodesia and what a star he was.
My best ever horse as I went into adult events 1960 - Kubla Khan.
Kubla Khan and myself with the beautiful scenery of Umtali in the background.
Our favourite car which we sadly sold when we left South Africa in 2002.
Hope you enjoyed taking a trip back in my life. I hope the weather will improve tomorrow but it does not look hopeful!!
