What’s Mum’s Suitcase?

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.

Hi All

We’re staying down here for 3 days (Thanksgiving). The weather is fab. 77°. Looks like we’re having an Indian summer. See you,

We’re going back after lunch today, cos we’re going to see Flatt & Scruggs (C&W) show tonight. We’ve enjoyed the weekend, it made a nice break.

Love Mo & H
