That was done on one of his good days, Ann. He'd had the bolt specially removed.

That bolt has been in our family for generations, literally :-D

Once took my girls to an Anne Frank Exhibition.
Youngest (aged about 5) asked why there was a picture of me as a child on the wall :-S

I was told I looked like Nana Mouskouri by passport control and other people mentioned it too, that was in the days before I put on weight and my hair went grey lol



Guinevere Report 5 Apr 2013 06:33

A long time ago the kids I was teaching thought I looked like Ruth - one of the dancers in Pan's People.

OH admitted many years after we were married that he fancied me because I looked like Cher - now I look like the picture she keeps in her attic.

We had a similar thread recently and one poster said she resembled Koo Stark when she was younger. That image has stayed with me - Koo still looks a gorgeous woman is recent photos.

I look totally different to when I was 25. Hope I change again in extreme old age to resemble someone nice looking like Cliff (or even Koo, for that matter) ;-)
