Ian and the Mountie.jpg

I expect you have a favourite image that brings back happy memories or simply makes you feel good just to look at it. It may be something highly personal, a picture of your house or garden or maybe a grainy shot of a holiday at the seaside from those far-off days of black and white photos taken with a battered box-brownie!

 

I just have to share this one with you as it is so joyous that it sparkles and is a reminder of a glorious Canadian holiday some twenty years ago though was sent to us long after that. The chap on the right is a dear friend or ours who lives in British Columbia and is not, as it may appear, pint-sized. He and hubby did national service together in the RAF in the 1950’s. I don’t know who his scarlet-coated mate is but what an advert for the Canadian Mounties eh?

 

I do, of course, like you I’m sure, have many other memories locked up in pictures but this one radiates a special twinkly happiness and I hope it brings a smile to your face too.
