Cliff used to bring apples for teacher hence the attention.

Both Albert Baines and Arthur Whittle were in my class at All Saints Frog Lane. Later I worked with Albert on the railway.

When people get to the age of the folk in this pic they begin to have a few aches and pains. Injuries don't clear up as quick, eye sight fades eventually the old mind begins to crumble. It happens to some quicker than others. Cliff Higham? Cliff Higham my aristotle. The kid talking with the teacher is none other than my old friend and neighbour Sammy Foster. Cliff. Tescos are giving free sight tests. Maybe you should take advantage and/ or see your Quack about a Trick Cyclist.

Little Joan Brennan seems to be on every one of the pictures. Wonder what she is doing now.
