Lovely photo, Shaun, but are you sure about the caption?

Claude said...

I think this is your best, Shaun. Young love which has endured the test of time. You can see it in the smiling way they look at each other. And they're not models. It's for real. Congratulations!

Or perhaps love is always young.... or perhaps I am talking crap!

Ah Claude This was a chance photo. I am so lucky to have parents like I have. You know I have never heard them have a row in all my life.

Andrew said...

Indeed... "52 years after they first met and over 57 years since they married", so they were married for 5 years before they first met. Ah they did have more civilised courtships in those days (or time machines?)

Andrew said...

" I have never heard them have a row in all my life"...

Well I never even saw my parents in a rowing boat, let alone actually hear them row.

(Just me being rudely and stupidly flippant again. Nice pictures.)

Andrew said...

I think the 52 v 57 issue was what Francis was nudging you about though, not the young love issue. Difference between a caption and a title. This does not count as a typo, but I am worried about what may happen if Don QuiScottie spots it... He may add a fourth enemy to his list...

jams o donnell said...

Ah Andrew love transcends all laws including those of physics!

well thay always thought rowing was bit pointless given the lack of an easily accessible waterway close by Their bicycling was a different matter!

Don QuiScottie can be placated Andrew, the temporal error has been rectified. The laws of Physics are back firmly in control

Andrew said...

Actually the Don has never seemed much troubled by flawed logic, indeed he is somewhat of a specialist in it (so I've heard). Glad to hear the laws of the universe have been restored by you Jams... now, could you maybe also fix these little neutrinos being thrown too fast to Italy by CERN?

jams o donnell said...

Well the good Don is unique! As for CERN, I'll dig out my sonic screwdriver and give the tappets on Chronosynclastic Infundibulum a bit of a tightening. That should slow down those naughty neutrinos.

I'll do it cash in hand to avoid the VAT

A very nice picture, Jams, and the two following ones as well.

Ah thanks Kellie!

Traveling Bells said...

Sweet photo. Congrats to your parents.

CherryPie said...

Truly beautiful in every way.

jams o donnell said...

Aww thanks Sandy!

Cherie I am so pleased with this photo. Totally unplanned

Syncopated Eyeball said...

What a gorgeous image.

jams o donnell said...

Ah thanks SE!

Andrew said...

Actually that last picture is quite possibly the best of your vast collection. Certainly up there near the top. I'd love to see Mum and Dad mimicking your 'Alley Cats' poses in front of the colourful graffiti though - that would be quite something.

jams o donnell said...

Thanks Andrew. It is going straight into my portfolio.

Somehow if they tried some Alley Cats type contortions there would be plaster casts, trusses and hip replacements all round!

SnoopyTheGoon said...

Great series all three of them.

jams o donnell said...

Thanks Snoopy!

Annie said...

Awww! This is so romantic and beautiful!

jams o donnell said...

Ah thank you Annie!

There are episodes, tiny gestures, little follies that we shall never forget ... without (the need of) / despite not always thinking of them.
This very photo will turn out to be part of your eidetic memory; if it not already is.
A treasure, my friend. I do feel happy for you.

jams o donnell said...

Ah thanks Sean. It is truly a treasured memory.

Stan said...

Beautiful photo, Jams. The title made immediate sense.

jams o donnell said...

Ah thanks Stan!
