Hi Sasha! smiley - hug
Your entry on Sir Derek Bibby is all subbed here: A87982898 <--- please remember to subscribe! smiley - towel
What a lovely man - I'm sorry you didn't have more reviewers in PR smiley - sadface
How awful that he chose that way to die smiley - cry I hope he didn't suffer.smiley - cuddle

My father was also a Normandy Veteran, he also loved daffodils (as do I)smiley - biggrin
I wondered if Lady Bibby was still alive - you speak of her as if she is. I tried to find Sir Derek on Wiki - and I found an American athlete with the same surname (unrelated I'm sure) but his date of birth struck me - same as my older daughter!smiley - wow

I'm burning the midnight oil here and very tired smiley - yawnso I am off to bed now.
Goodnightsmiley - zzz

Thanks GB smiley - hug

I’ve subscribed and it all looks great - thank you.

Yes, I also hope he didn’t suffer at the end - it was a sad event indeed... The daffodils are a fine legacy, though smiley - biggrin Yes, Lady Bibby is 83 and still involved with The Bibby Line - she moved away from the Grange some years ago, so I haven’t seen her recently, but I have met her a few times over the years since I left her excellent playschool smiley - biggrin (She was very good at including me in activities, so I didn’t have to worry about being disabled, and I enjoyed the fun ways she taught us smiley - biggrin)

That is funny that you found someone who shares your daughter’s birthday through this Entry! The Birthday Paradox indeed A86093698

Thank you smiley - hug Sleep well, and see you around! smiley - hug
