Thanks for stopping by! Would you like a cup of tea or coffee? And please, sit for a spell. If you enjoy my posts, please feel free to follow me or subscribe to my blog. This is a word verification free, family friendly blog, so everything I share here is for all ages. I am a happily married man in my late sixties who lives on the Wirral peninsula, near Liverpool, in the UK.
I'm a blogger - and nowadays that seems to be my main occupation. Rambles from My Chair is my main blog. I’m a retired local government executive - now studying how to survive a neurological disorder that gives me various problems but, hopefully, a whole new outlook on life and an increased sense of humour and perspective. There is a saying in Sweden "man måste vara frisk för att orka vara sjuk" ~ "you have to be well to cope with being ill"....
I enjoy most forms of communication and postcards are a special favourite. I used to blog as Scriptor Senex which is Latin for Old Writer but now Google only lets me post as John Edwards.

I have been looking through some of my old slides and trying to decide what to do with them. There are many thousands and thousands of them. It would take me another lifetime to scan them into the computer; it seems pointless just leaving them in the loft; and nowadays the majority of them would mean nothing to anyone but me. I shall probably do what I always do with decisions like this and opt out by simply returning them to the loft. In the meantime I shall hunt for a few of the more interesting ones to scan in and show you. The above two are of Clovelly, taken in the late 1960s. Dad is standing adjusting his camera in the top one..
