Oh dear my poor young sister Lilly. Mum heard that there were drugs in her flat and went herself to check this out. Not being quite sure of her drug knowledge, she decided to go straight to the local Police Station to tell the cops that her daughter and friends were 'into drugs'. So, the flat got busted!! Not a very good way to make friends Mum! But it must be said that nothing was too hard for our mother to deal with! Many years later I met the police-woman who had done the raid and she still remembered the situation very well even though many years had gone by!
Marie: And yet another story!
It seems to be a trait of the elderly to tell stories and often repeat the same stories. As our family has a major Reunion in February 2015 I will tell a family story each day and NOT repeat it for 100 days. I will use christian names from our earlier generations as pseudonyms.
