Steve's first girlfriend? :)

Great and fascinating series, Steve! What an idyllic childhood it must have been - and a rude awakening to move away!! Why had your parents located there?

Steve Paxton on December 11, 2008

my father moved there to be the hospital chemist but not quite the chemist shop just down your road, order 1 year medical requirement plus thought it would be a great thing for two small boys. i wish she was i have lots i can not up load no top.steve

You will have to put a top on them with a touch up, Steve. Get a shot with some shells on the beach, and use Picasa to put one over each boobie, that'll do the trick! What a shame though, I could look at these photos all day, the light is so white, the way it drenches the photos is quite unique and wonderful!

Thanks again to both of you for sharing these photos. It's like a Christmas gift to be able to look at them. :D

Very best wishes to you,


Sue Allen on December 12, 2008

ps.. I'd better just make quite sure that you know I'm fooling around, with the shell suggestion, knowing my silly sense of humour, you might think I meant it, and give me a telling off for messing around with Picasa too much! :#

bye bye for now..
