  • My Life and Times

    I was born in 1939 BC.
    That’s ‘Before Computers’.

    Luckily I survived the following events in my life, such as

    World War II, The London Blitz, Rationing, and worst of all… Archbishop Temple’s School.




    During the mid 1950s I was enjoying Rock ‘n’ Roll and being a first generation teenager, when suddenly, just like Elvis, I found myself in uniform during ‘The Cold War’…and then




    I became ‘a family’. Which meant that I sort of missed the ‘swinging sixties’, but still managed to look a complete prat in the 70s, just like everyone else.




    During the ‘Thatcher Years’ I lost my hair and a lot of people lost a good deal more. My career fluctuated to say the least as I was demoted, promoted, fired and hired a number of times, but still I managed to stagger on into a welcome retirement and to celebrate 56 years of happy marriage.

My bestest Christmas card.

Posted by Big John on December 19, 2007

A little girl named Rebecca designed this Christmas card which brought a smile to my face when I received it today, …


… but my smile soon turned to a chuckle when I read her mother’s explanation printed inside the card …

  • Snowman with snow falling all around.
  • A present with star on top.
  • Jesus AS A BIG BOY.
  • The manger.
  • Baby Jesus.
  • The big shining star.

…   How could it be anything else ?  🙂

    Well, OF course….I knew right away that’s what all those pictures were. (Terri fibbing)
    That’s too cute though. What a nice thought. I got a really sweet handmade card from the little girl next door today also. Somehow those always mean way more to me than your typical Hallmark.
    And if I don’t get back here before……Wishing you and your family a VERY Merry Christmas, John! Have a wonderful day filled with all good things.

    Seeing things through the eyes of a child is the best. Great card, John!

    Yes, those are the “bestest” cards, John. Every year I get a hand-made crayon drawing from a young boy in Thailand and I love watching how he has progressed (from the age 5). Happy Holidays to you and to “she who must be obeyed”.
