OK ... please ... don't shut me down ... don't leave. It's ALMOST over, I promise. Only today. Yes, there is more. It happened while I was considering the covers ... couldn't help it. Just poured out. Now ... it is really and truly done, finished, ended, completed, finito! So, please, indulge me ... just today.
I thought I would bind it. So I began ... and ... of course more pages came. I will begin with the cover.
|Now the inside cover. Found photographs of me in Trafalgar Square feeding the pigeons ... how I loved that town! It was my second Christmas away from home. I found some of Papa's writing which says Happy Xmas ... it's along the side.|
|Pages 1 and 2. I absolutely adore the London postage cancel stamp. It says London, 26 July PM. My birthday. :o)|
|Pages 3 and 4|
|Pages 5 and 6|
|Pages 7 and 8|
|Pages 9 and 10|
|Pages 11 and 12|
|After the last page, I added a 3/4 page. It's a photograph of Mama and Papa twenty five years later celebrating their 25th. I was still in London ... thus the symbolic 'post card' reference.|
|The book lying open .. front and back covers. I tied a small piece of twine on one of the rings ... like you would wrap one on your finger to 'remember'. Symbolic.|
