89years ago today, in a flat in Chadwell Heath, Essex , Grace Joan Brown was born. So to celebrate Grandmama’s birthday ,Florence and I took her out to lunch at an Italian restaurant in Crystal Palace. We had a lovely Italian waiter ( not to eat ) , who thrust his peppermill at us and did the usual stuff with his parmesan grater and then engaged us in conversation . He asked who was whose mother ( ? ) , so we explained we were Grandmother, Daughter and Granddaughter , to which he replied ”same father?”- do we look that odd ?

I know Anna , that clip is amazing , I was waiting for the lion to sink its teeth into the mans neck- so I couldn’t quite relax the first time I saw it.
