‘Ya daft bugger !’, said Mrs D a few years ago

‘Me ?’, I replied.

‘I could write a bloody book about you !’

And so I began.

Well, not a book exactly – more like occasional notes of some incident in our daily lives that I felt interesting enough to jot down and motivated enough later to write up

    Mr. D,
    It is such a pleasure to meet you. Mrs D is surely a saint for putting up with you!

      I’ve called her many things in our 20+ years together – but never ‘saint’ 😆

    I’m enjoying these Duncan, does the date on the post indicate the day you first wrote the vignettes?

      Glad you like them, DF.

      The date at the start of each post provides a rough indication of when the incident I’m describing took place.

      Some were written at the time, and I’m just ‘reworking’ them now – adding pics, adding/deleting some text.

      Others are based on fragmentary notes/headings/ideas I jotted down at the time with a view to writing up later, but never got round to until now 😳

      My excuse for this procrastination is I lead such a busy life 😉 😆

        So, what that tells me is that Mrs.D must be a really sweet woman as you’re still together! And, you the loving husband. I’ll keep that in mind as I read.
        I’m just now learning to jot everything Wise idea, I wish I’d started it years ago myself

    Very nice site Duncan, thanks for sharing all of these wonderful stories…There seems to be smiles and frowns in each and every post. A great read for me! I wish Mrs.D all the best.

    I just came upon this poignant blog after you visited mine. Though I see this blog was written a few years ago, what a beautiful, painful and touching tribute to your love.
