In the first Photograph I am the Handsome chap at the back but I am outshone by 12 wonderful children from the Ukraine. these children are from the area affected by the Chernobyl Nuclear Disaster and are over here for a 4 week holiday arranged and organised by the Portsmouth and Hayling Island Link of the " Chernobyl Children,s Life Line' My Neighbour,s Chris and Kim are one of the Host families and I have the Pleasure of Supporting This worthwhile organisation.

Sunday "Fathers Day"
So that brings me through to Sunday. It was a good night,s sleep Saturday and I got up at 9.00 am Sunday and looking forward to Going round to Gervase and Leanne,s later on this afternoon for a nice Roast dinner as Today is Fathers day. Unfortunately I never really saw much of my father as he was away at sea in the Royal Navy until 1948 and he passed away at the young age of 38 in 1953, but I always think of him on Fathers day.

Once Down at Gervase,s I have a coffee and then at about 2.00 Leanne,s dad "Dave" arrives and Leanne,s Mum Elaine arrives at about 2.15. so we are all there. we have a really nice dinner of Roast Chicken, Parsnips and Potatoes also Cauliflower, Broccoli, and a nice Swede and carrot mash, gravy and a Yorkshire Pudding. Desert was a nice "Summer fruit desert" I was absolutely full to the brim, Gervase and Leanne had the same apart from the chicken , they had a Quorn roast as they are both vegetarian. anyway we had a brilliant afternoon and Dave gave me a lift home about 7.00 in the evening.

|off to get the Paper|
once I sent the text to Pauline I get some porridge for breakfast at about 10.00 and then I went round to gt the Morning paper, the weather is still pretty dull here but it is also warm so it was a nice walk round to get the paper and then once back home I settle down with a Peppermint tea and then get the crosswords done before deciding to watch some youtube videos on the smart TV.
Anyway I decided to watch some "Johnny Tillotson" videos going way back and that certainly brought back some memories of my youth.
