Oh my, what memories those photo's invoke. The top one is an extremely good one of my baby sister Janet.

That's not Des Gillet in the middle of your dad and Dick Myers. As I said, I recognise him, and know he was a friend of my dad's too as he came to our unit on several occasions. I think he had some sort of job at the hostel.

I've told both Janet and Dianne about the site, Dianne registered I think, but don't know about Jan. Dianne is King now and Jan is Abram, so if you see either you'll know who they are.

Still wish I could remember that fella's name though. He certainly is familiar, but Mum doesn't know him. Don't you just hate that?

Does anyone know who it is on the Monkey bars on the extreme left, the older girl, its just that I had curly hair and was just about the only one on the whole hostel with curly hair (and red how good is that). I was always on the Monkey bars, they were my very favourite, I loved them, I am thinking it might be me and would love to know if it is
