Down memory lanes to 80…part four, back to England

Nicky kindly collected us at Heathrow, and took us to Andy’s at Bury St Edmunds, with a brief stop to see Margaret Gunn (AKA “Kins”). She was a teenager in the house in Balham where Paddy and I rented a flat in 1970, and has remained a staunch family friend ever since.

A wonderful 80th birthday on June 15th 2019, a little golf with Andy and friends, lovely cards, beautiful presents, a grandkids-made cake, and great dinner at the Giggling Squid with so special family: Andy, Fiona, Alex, Charlotte and Issy Cotton, and Jules, Nicky, Perdy and Jack Richardson, plus Fiona’s parents Brian and Diedre Jameson.

Just two more days in Suffolk, a little golf, admiring Alex and Issy’s equestrian skills, and Charlotte’s prom dress.

A final dinner at the Steak and Lobster restaurant at a Heathrow hotel, and back to our special home on Dewees. We are lucky people.

    Your trip to Ireland and the Dingle peninsula, in particular, brought back very happy memories of one of the highlights of my career – bringing the Board of the American College of Gastroenterology to Killarney and the glorious afternoon and evening we spent on the Dingle peninsula including pints of the black and creamy stuff before dinner back in Dingle. One of the most beautiful towns in Ireland. Thank you for sharing.
