Actually, thinking about it - that photo was three years ago - the following year Pa had a chest infection so we didn't take him out - we watched the service from the Cenotaph with him.
Ma was very grumpy in that photo - the dementia was beginning to take hold and she hadn't been able to understand why were were taking them out on a damp day in November and she wouldn't let me button her coat up. Once she got to the War Memorial the memories kicked in and she understood.
On another tack - have you noticed that in the summer I garden, but in the winter I cook ... just as well there's gardening in the summer, otherwise there'd be much too much baking etc going on and I'd never get into my gardening jeans
