Fingers crossed that is!
On Friday, or was it Saturday (?) a thick padded envelope arrived through the letter box. I was expecting a parcel so did not hurry to open it but, when I did, I was delighted.
True to his promise, Barry Vane has sent me some of his Dad’s photos; mostly of people who worked at STC rather than us kids. I saw photos of Lily Wren and her husband Dennis who live in Brixham, as well as Claud Jolly and Eddy himself with members of the entertainment crowd.
So, as I am home alone on Tuesdays I carried the TV down to the office ( sad I know) switched on the laptop and the scanner and placed the first photos on the machine. Eventually found the “scan” button and waited.
“Error, no memory stick inserted – try again”.
Great, now, where was it ????????????????
Talk about sod’s law, I only gave it to my grandson on Sunday with some homework on it I had helped him with.
I am therefore sorry to say it will be a few days before I have done it but the wait will be worth it.
However, there was something else in the envelope - an advertising poster.
What a brilliant name for a variety Show – The Ilmaniacs ! Note the admission price.

Thanks to Barry for taking the trouble sending the photos to me.
