After my dad died in 2010, my sister was clearing out his house – the house we grew up in – and found a small suitcase in the loft. The case was full of stuff that Mum, who died in 1999, had saved, but had never mentioned. Letters, cards, postcards, photos, programmes from shows, even things like dry cleaning receipts from when she lived in America in the early sixties. I’m scanning it all in and posting it here.
If you enjoy this blog, please consider making a contribution to the MS Society tribute fund in Mum’s name.

Well! We finally arrived. It’s taken us 2 1/2 days to get here. We arrived yesterday and checked into a nice hotel right by a lake. Today we’re going sightseeing and then later on swimming and sunbathing. We want to take things easy to give Harry a rest from driving. We … yesterday, it took about 1/2 day. We climbed to 9,430 feet at about the 1/2 way mark we had to stop to let the car cool down. Fantastic view from the top.
Custer Battlefield – We went to see these yesterday morning. They show the exact place of Custer’s Last Stand.
