Throwback Thursdays : Highlights of 1985

This is the year Jeanette started High School, we got a puppy, Carl was invested into Cubs and we had a marvellous coastal holiday in Marina Beach …

Her uniform didn’t look the same after the first few days  .. socks were rolled right down, hems got shorter etc (as does happen in High School!) .. and look at Carl with those long skinny legs 🙂

Gorgeous cuddly Dennis 🙂  Started off as a Lab puppy but after 6 months or so he grew whiskers and longer straggly hair, especially over his eyes (!)  Vet said he must have been a Lab cross Airedale.  Everyone said he looked like a flokati rug!!  He was a gorgeous dog.  In later life sadly, he suffered with crippling arthritis, especially in his hips
