Yes thats right 44 FORTY FOUR years today Sue and I got married.I have attached most of last years post of our wedding day. Today we didnt do a lot, walked the sea front with a friend of ours. Then walked up Cliff walk (beautiful views), called into the ongoing workings of "Jasons Garden", then back down to cafe and a cuppa and a .....shh dont tell anybody a Bacon & egg butty. Tomorrow we are going for a meal (Probably a Chinese) then afterwards round to the "King's Arms" for a few drinks and hopefully a few good 60s-70 songs from Kennie too.
The next post will probably be a longish one, all about Jason's Garden here in Teignmouth. (Look it up on the internet). His brother and father have done wonders here.

In 1964 I married my then fiance Susan Emms and in 1965-6 we had our two children Pamela and Roy.I met Sue while we were both working at the Engineering works (Sue in the offices) of Maudsley Motor Co in Alcester Warks. These photo's of the wedding and reception are all we have left, as we lost a whole album full during one of our moves.

Below left, The early evening, just before the start of the stag night.

Hi all, Thanks for the comments and good wishes, I just wish this post had turned out how I wanted it. Blogger in its wisdom refused to allow me to post any more photo's, or to edit this post,sorry. Bob.

I found this blog as a result of Googling Maudsley Motor Company. Any chance either of you remembering Jack Aston who worked for the same company in the 60.We think his wife was the bosses daughter, Cecily or Celia. he was mums brother. Regards Anita
