Here we go again! I hope this will be a case of third time lucky! I wouldn’t be surprised if people groaned “oh no! not this guy again”, but I’m going to bite the bullet as they say, and take my chance with the patience of anyone reading this.  Since I last started this blog things have happened; I’ve aged two years; My mother has aged by the same amount as has my faithful canine companion; My father passed away just over two months ago.  So, I think I’ll make a more concerted effort to write a few lines every day from now and I hereby dedicate these random bits to my Dad!
