Sandy Wilkie The picture WAS in colour folks, honest – the wedding wasn’t colour cameras, just the Hamilton which hadn’t caught up! Thanks for reminding me this is a Ruby year!!

Catherine Paterson You just saved me working that out Sandy Wilkie xx

Anne Grogan I remember going up to the farm for milk and those darn geese chasing us down the lane. 🇨🇦

Sandy Wilkie I have an ex-pat Scot cousin here just now from Canada – she too doesn’t like the geese but I assure you and she, they are harmless really but excellent guard “dogs”!

Sandy Wilkie Btw Cathy, yours can’t be all that far away either!
