Do You Remember Me?

Hi,

.

How are you today.

Come on, it has to be better today ‘cos it is a Friday once more!

.

Unfortunately the weather here has continued to be coldish and very grayish, which is a bit on the disappointing side given that we are at the end of July, which is the height of our summertime.

We have all lost our earlier tans and are definitely a very typically British pale green colour again.

We are a people who wear a natural camouflage….if we were invaded it wold be very hard to see us in the countryside….that is probably why the earlier  and less technological of our race used to smear blue woad all over themselves.

It was so they could see each other easily within this green and pleasant land of ours.

.

I have had a quiet week but one interesting thing happened.

I received a message from a lady who had been searching for me all over the place before getting my e-mail from a family member she had discovered on-line.

.

It appears that she went to the same grammar school as I did and she wants to get in touch etc.

How strange it was.

I had never realised it before, but I can remember just about nothing about those days at all.

Although I was at the bloody place from 11 to 16, it would appear that I either have Alzheimer’s, or I did not enjoy it at all.

.

Having said that, I can of course remember particular instances with different friends, which took place during those long studious years of scholarly toil.

.

The e-mail told me that we knew each other and on at least one occasion we had been to each other’s houses.

I, however, have only a complete blank about the whole thing.

.

After subconsciously mulling on it for a few days, I have discovered a sliver of memory where I am standing talking to a taller girl and thinking that she had the most amazing hair, which was so black that it had blue in it.

Perhaps this is her!

.

Isn’t it strange.

I wonder if other people can recall everything about that period of their lives.

But hey, let’s be real, it was about 50 years ago and that is a whole lifetime gone past.

.

But then again, perhaps I AM in the early stages of losing it completely….a bit like being totally drunk….only much cheaper!

.

Have a good one yourself.

J,x.
