April 30th 2021, would have been Captain Tom Moore’s one hundred and first birthday, and in recognition of that, a new challenge has been announced that ordinary folk should try to complete a hundred somethings to raise more funds for The Captain Tom Foundation. My own challenge is to write over a hundred days, a 100 word blog each day.
The wonders of these times: someone I haven’t seen since I was sixteen, but often think about, has contacted me. She was a friend of me and my sister, a tall slim girl, always smiling, with an open friendly happy face. My memories like photos, I turn each one and there she is, in a snapshot of our joyful days together when we were young. We were all swimmers, which is how we met, through our city clubs and training, and catching a coach to travel to race against other clubs. How glad I am – such happy, happy days.
