THROUGH THE YEARS (part 8).
This is a picture of my wife Sue and me just after the birth of our first baby Pamela, my dont we look young (19).
This one (below) a year earlier 1963, taken on a trip up on the Cotswolds.
Sue (below) aged about 10 or 11 years old, amazing how we gain lines and wrinkles but the face is still very recognisable.
Below a couple of years younger (9) Aint she cute!!!.
This one taken at age 7, do you like the little bow in her hair? And the really pronounced freckles. (she threatened me if I put this pickie on) She says her ears look big and awful (now now no calls of Dumbo please).
Below this one is a real cutie, taken when she was just 4 years old, its a pity about the quality of the photo, (mind it was 58 years ago).
Sue was born in August 1945 to mother Joan Emms (formerly Lamb) and Horse guardsman (at the time)Jim Emms. Sue was born in Bidford upon Avon (Warks) in her Gran/grandads house in a little terrace called "Stepps piece). A year or so later Jim came out of the forces, the family moved a few miles to a tiny village called "Barton", here Jim worked as a Cowman for several years. Sue's sister Daphne was born here in 1948. After a year or two Jim showed interest in the Gamekeeping side and was eventually taken on as underkeeper.He kept this up until his retirement as a head keeper on Lord Shuckborough's estate(Daventry area), during this time Jim took several posts each one meaning moves, so Sue remembers living in 4 or more houses before meeting me.Sue and I met while working at the "Maudsley Motor Company" of Great Alne Alcester.She was a junior clerk and I an apprentice engineer, each day on her way to collect the tea and biscuits for the office Sue walked past the area that I worked in.The only reason I asked her out was for a bet, a lad I worked with named Bryan Curtis bet that he could date her before me. Needless to say he lost, and here we are. Anyone interested can get more history on Through the years, and parts 1-2-3-4-5 in February, part6 in March and 7 in November of 07.
Joke of the day.
