Through this door...and it's the original, although painted black in my day...I walked with my mum one cold morning early in 1962. I was just 4 years old. The door led to Miss Smith's office and my mu

Lovely visit to Berridge yesterday and nice to put faces to names. Planning a few things I could talk to the children about and sort out my school photos it made me realise that it was 59 years since

I am an interloper - I wasn’t at Berridge! However, I first saw my future wife, from a distance, on the night Kennedy was shot. Friday 22nd November 1963. I met her properly in summer 1964 when House of the Rising Sun was number one. She was 13, and call me a cradle snatcher but it really was love at first sight. I was absolutely infatuated. I used to walk the long way home just to pass her house and catch a glimpse of her. Bitter, sweet memories! We began to “go out” in the summer of 1965 when the Help! album was release (You don’t realise how much I need you ....) We were married in 1968, she was 17 and I was 20. Still married. Still love her deeply.

I would have been more upset if you hadn't responded AG. I just love the banter. Makes you realise, you're not on your own. Cheers!

I'm beginning to wonder if I should have gone to Berridge, it would seem I missed out on quite a bit. However, as I'm older, I would never have met the Ayatollahess, that whippersnapper Jill Sparrow. Oh dear, I've led a sheltered life.. :shout:
