A little about me
Well, what can I say ? I was born into a poor family, my father had died just before I was born, but I had a happy childhood though money was always scarce.
I had one elder brother and I remember I always inherited his old clothes with the phrase " You will grow into them ". Apart from that, any new clothes were bought from the Army and Navy stores, can you just imagine the stick an 8 year old kid gets,... going to school dressed as a Japanese Admiral ?, anyway I digress -
When I grew up I joined the Royal Navy, as a Naval Airman,then worked on the Golden Hind ( see blog ) that operated out of Torquay, before eventually becoming a Truck driver, which I still do to this day, even though I retired some eight years ago. .Life is still fun !
My Interests
Canoing, Walking, Swimming , Cycling and Fishing

I sat down and the Imam came up to me, laid his hands on my hand and said:…
