Race For Life - The 8-Team

We did it last night - raced for life, that is, at Cannon Hill Park in Birmingham, in aid of Cancer Research UK.

Eight women from our church (The Lyndon Ladies) participated along with 2000 other women. From our group, three of us ran the course, four walked and one combined both.

Here are the Lyndon Ladies before the race

Here's me with the two other two runners from our group, Liz and Hazel.

So far, I have raised £135.00 ($270 approx) but would be very happy to add to that total. My fundraising page will be open for donations for another 13 days!

Sorry to repeat this picture, taken in 1963, of me and my cousin David. He was cremated today and I thought it would be appropriate to publish the photo again with captions. David would have really laughed at this! Just click on the arrow to activate the Bubblesnap.

He was a member of the
Herefordshire Headway, an organisation for brain injured adults. See 3rd June post below.

Bog Roll

INconvenience at Snow Hill Train Station, Birmingham

Tell me pray, how are ladies (or men having a no. 2) supposed to reach the toilet roll?

Obviously we have to be contortionists.

My Cousin David

This photo of me and my cousin David was taken in 1963, when we were both just 3.
David died of pneumonia on Friday, aged nearly 47. He has suffered from physical disabilities since his first brain tumour was removed at the age of 10.
Initially saddened by David's departure from this life, I now thank God for releasing him and pray that my delightful cousin is in perfect physical condition in Heaven.
