Hello all,
 How  pleased I am to be back in blogland.
I am fortunate to hardly ever be ill but my word...I was  laid low for five days with a nasty dose of gastroenteritis.
Fortunately I recovered well enough to attend the funeral of our friend on Tuesday.  Marion, her husband and family too,  suffered the cruel effects of Alzheimers for the past four years.
Our two families share many happy memories over 30+ years with our jaunts in our touring caravans and other holidays.

As this was a male sympathy card I didn't want it to look tooo girly and kept it simple.

A closer look

I'd like to enter this for

Cheers me dears
