The funeral of a much-loved ‘uncle’ from my childhood meant I had to take my 92 year old mother from the care home in Morecambe down to the old home-town of Bolton… in 30 degree heat. Mum has multiple heath conditions and the logistics are always a nightmare.
In addition, she has recently had a fall on the promenade and broken her wrist – you can see the cast in the photo.
The joy of the day was seeing these three ladies reunited – despite the sad occasion – for the first time in several years.
There used to be four of them. Louise died last year, but the remaining three – who coined the name ‘Golden Girls’ – have stubbornly refused to give up the ghost, despite all being challenged, health-wise.
All bar the elegant lady, top-left, who has just exhausted her last dancing partner and is looking for a replacement…
I can forward names…
Despite the sad occasion and the searing heat, the Golden Girls had a wonderful day, and send their love to anyone here who knows them.
