not a very good photo, but I was on a deadline as this card is now on its way to Camden NSW for our friends Ruby wedding anniversary. Now I'm going to tell you about these friends. Elaine and I. We first met when we were both nurses in QARNNS at RNH Plymouth. We married on the same day same year in 1977 but different locations. At the time Joe was working with Elaine in the sick bay at HMS Raleigh. We lived in the same road in Torpoint. Elaine and her husband moved to Derby in 1978 and we lost touch. In 1980 Joe and I moved to Derby and we bumped into each other outside Sainsbury's in the old Eagle Centre. We then continued as we left off & continued our friendship. They moved to Australia 9 years ago to be with their daughters and thier families, But our friendship continues via social media, texts and face time. We planned to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary together in Canada in approx 3 weeks time as we celebrated our 30th together in Rome. Unfortunately due to my health we had to cancel back in April. I am so sad that we are unable to join them on what would have been a magical holiday. Cruise through the inside passage to Alaska, 2 days on the Rocky Mountaineer and a land trip to various locations and Vancouver, 28 days in total.
