Solid white frost and sunshine here in Stockton, a solid band of frozen water on back step so put salt on its tail.
The door just opened, the family arrived bearing gifts and more importantly lunch.

Stockton, blue sky and sunshine, a definite front along the coast cloudy out to sea.
You could try sending carrots! my Sons Horses may send you something warm in a parcel, it should keep the roses happy??

Was sunny but cold, now dull and cold, I have got rid of cold so will give it another day indoors to make sure.

Jeannie "Spring Lamb" if you put me in a stew pot it would take at least eight hours to a succulent mouthful, think hedge back old ram.
Feeling less ache today though still chesty.
Stockton weather not helping, dark and miserable makes it sound better than it is, "oh well" we know in this neck of the woods never plan anything for February?
See both of you later, "err" maybe???

Now Ladies, anything but ndancing around the room more laid up with cold and kidney infection, painful although easing back now.
Listen up.Click on your own name a box comes up and on the left click on Messages.
Again on the left click on compose message
Top of the compose message they ask for the name of who you wish to write to "Palaisglide" then subject such as MELF (middle east land forces)
Write message in box provided then go to the bottom and send.
GW will send an e-mail to the person you wish to speak to, only the two in contact can see those messages and you wait for a reply again you will be told a message is waiting, some have gone on to e-mail from there as easier.

Girasole wrote (see)

Highland Jeannie and Palaisglide (as in ballroom dancing?), my birth mother was  an RAF Nursing Sister in Palestine and Aden and apparently after a while because it was so hot had to have leave every now and then. Am I right about this?



The women once we all moved out of that area on the mandate would be sent to Camps along the Canal and probably BMH Fayid a massive military hospital. Most of those camps Ismalia Shandur Suez had Lido's for recreation, gardens, sheltered area's and swimming. The women would get leave up in Port Said a camp run by the WVS and the photo of me doing the Palaisglide with three of those lovely ladies hence the pen name. Us men got one leave in the whole period. 118 degrees in the shade if you could find any and freezing the hairs off your chest at night, "err" well not the women I do not think, could be wrong.

We could talk about this on the message page I am in touch with others on there, up to you.

Jeannie I think it would be "Helwan" near the massive army base of "Tel el Kabir", you could not throw your cap in the air without it landing on an Army or RAF base.

Stockton dry sunny patchy cloud and cold.
My cold is still hanging on a touch of kidney infection not helping but work to do including three sets of bed clothes after heavy night sweats, oh well sweat it out as they say.
