Happy New Year Deb. Thanks for all your support and friendship in 2013.
2014 is going to a fantastic year isn’t it????
Even David Cameron is saying that we are out of recession and on the way to prosperity. He would say that with an election looming!!
But anyway.. Love to you and the family. Tony and Marilyn.
(PS Please do not take previous comments too seriously. Sometimes taking a strong view point creates discussion and gets the old brain cells going.)
Same to you Tony! – and I never mind your comments, even if they do periodically get a tad snarky – “For what do we live, but to make sport for our neighbours, and laugh at them in our turn?” is all too true!
And I have no idea who you are referring to as resembling the Lady in the New Year postcard?? – do tell!
Just a thought, Deb, The lady in the picture above looks….well… she looks…. (Can’t quite bring myself to say it”!!!!ha! ha!)
I don’t think she resembles anybody I know, or though, I suppose her hair style …….! but then i had better not mention a name as the masculine outfit and whip in hand do suggest ….. well…! Anyway, lets leave it there.
