A Boy and his Mum (for Kimbo).




I've recently had some dealings with our Notaire, which involved finding some old documents (they're very keen on old documents in France). Whilst delving into dust covered strong-boxes, I came across these.

Above is my first-born son; the lovely Kimbo. Other than now being about 6ft 6ins, he really hasn't changed a bit (like hell he hasn't).


And this is his mother (she who became Lady Magnon) at roughly the same age. She hasn't changed a bit either (although she no longer plays with dolls).

Everyone say Aaaaaaah!

    1. Had it been of me, I would have been dirtier and scruffier.

  5. Sadly, all my old photos disappeared along with my personal effects when my container went astray between Angola and Cape Town. I am six foot, Dominic at fourteen is now only half an inch away. What is it they eat which we didn't? Oh yes, fast food.

  7. Lovely Cro,and the thing is he will always be Mums little boy no matter what his height and like many Mums I imagine when he needed it over the years she could reduce him back to that size lol.
