"I never knew just what it was - and I guess I never will"

Yesterday was my Parent's Wedding Anniversary.
They would have been married 64 years.

I normally take Mum out for lunch as Dad always forgot - so there was no reason to not continue the tradition just because Dad is no longer with us.

I would have liked to have taken her for High Tea somewhere but she was insisting on just a Toasted Sandwich and Coffee.

I have long since learnt not to argue with my Mother - so Toasted Sandwich it was ...


We started the day by taking him flowers and ended it at an Op Shop.

I really don't enjoy going to Opportunity Shops but occasionally you find something - Interesting...


Like THIS!


Any ideas?
I am open for suggestion.

With no holes in the sole-plate, I don't think it was a Steam Iron.
I think it may be an oil or spirit heated Iron.


But at $65 I think I will leave it there for a serious collector!

And The Lord gave us a beautiful day , , ,


Time to say - "See you later Dad".

It was not a time for sadness, It was a time to celebrate his life
He would have been so chuffed
He loved a party 
especially when he was the centre of attention.

Matthew 25:21
