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.

Jo and I were involved in the establishment of the Alder Centre – a ground-breaking support service, based at the Royal Liverpool Children’s Hospital, Alder Hey, Liverpool, for anyone affected by the death of a child. One of our jobs in the early stages was that of publicity including going around collecting cheques from fundraisers. Here we are seen with a young Richard as he meets his first Liverpool FC players – Ronnie Whelan and Barry Venison. He was a bit young to appreciate the dual importance of the occasion but it adds two names to the list of Liverpool footballers he has met and been photographed or filmed with!
