We whispered to each other about a cousin Dean who had got into trouble hiding behind the shelves in the local Book Shop to read all the latest comics. He had got caught and 'shamed the family'! What we hadn't known was that our brother Kerry had managed to get enough money to ORDER his own comics and nobody ever knew! I am sure he would have sold them onto friends at that time, when kids didn't get pocket money. Now where on earth Kerry got that money from remains a mystery to this day and he's not telling!
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.
