My Answers to the above…

1.I have actually written about this in one of previous posting, About my mother and her violin, the day she handed it over to me. She had not played her violin for over thirty years, and she took it out of its case, tuned up the strings to normal/concert pitch then proceeded to play our National Anthem ‘God Save the Queen’.

2. Again I have made a mention of this in past posts, it was the first time we as a family went to Disney in Orlando. We were all a little overwhelmed and did not know what to expect.  We passed our tickets through the machine and the lady accepted us in, walked through to the square at the end of Main Street, Magic Kingdom, my daughter, Eloise, was gone running off to meet Mickey Mouse and Daisy, who were signing autographs. The smile and look on her face is so unforgettable.

 3.  To try and take things as they come. Deal with what needs to be dealt with one at a time. My mum had a live and let live attitude.

4. I was brought up in the hippy days and anti-war songs etc. I  was part of things like CND, (Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament) Make love not war. Y’all get the idea. It is these ideals that I try to pass on.

5. No problem here, it was when I was gigging in bands, playing my guitar. It was the enjoyment of thinking that these people were listening or dancing to our sounds.

6. I have not looked at it as attaining a goal, but recently been diagnosed diabetic, and with asthma puts me at high risk so my doctor tells me, so I am now trying to gain courage to play my music in front of people again at folk clubs I frequent.

7. Apart from my mother, my main number one influence, it would have to be a teacher, Mrs Wingate who had faith in me, where I lost a lot of schooling due to ill-health, she kept on being there and assisting.

  1. CONGRATULATIONS GERRY! Your site is easy to enjoy. You share your heart with us. I am glad to be one of your followers. Thank you for the recognition.


  2. Thanks for all of the kudos, Gerry. I’m down right blushing at this point.;)

    Reading through your answers, it had to chuckle (my middle name is Eloise) and it appears you grew up about the same time that I did. I too would love to see World peace, but I must admit, I wouldn’t mind tossing a few war-mongering politicians and bankers out into the line of fire first. I know, I’m bad.

    You Gerry, are so deserving of this award, and so I thank you for the many visits you’ve made to my blog, and for your loyalty as well. See you out and about in blog land! 🙂

  3. I so enjoyed reading more about you. You’re a very interesting person, you know. Ya always make me smile, brother. So happy to call you family. 😉 You deserve the award, as you and your blog are so beloved. You are such a great supporter and encourager of others and I always appreciate you. I totally get you on how you felt at Disney, as I had those same feelings. Going for the first and only time, thus far, in ’07, and seeing all of Hallie’s joyful and excited expressions, as well as my mom’s. She wasn’t even looking very forward to going, except for staying at the Animal Kingdom Lodge, but once she arrived, she might as well have been 8 years old again, like Hallie. I, too, felt like a kid again, although that’s not really too different than how I act every day. ha! Always a kid at heart. Our best vacation, yet! So happy to learn more about you every time I read your blog. Trying to play catch-up today. *love and hugs*

    1. Thanks very much for your lovely words again, My family have now been 4 times and I just love the feeling we all get. Magic really does exist, All else fades from our minds when we walk through those Disney gates. Maybe a post will arise for a story, we shall see…. thanks so much much… always caring..

    1. Your are very welcome, Carol, your site portrays you so well and you are so deserved…I love popping over to your site…Thank you for so much,,,;)
