Friday My Town Shoot-out - "Things That Barry Made Me Think Of"

This week's subject for the Friday My Town Shoot-out is "Things That Barry Made Me Think Of" - chosen by NanU. In memory of Barry Edward Fraser – April 3rd 1943 to 20th July 2010.

Those who have followed Barry’s blogs will recall his ‘classic of childhood’ posting showing him in his pram. I couldn’t resist showing you a photo of me in my pram with my bruvver, GB, looking on.

And this photo was taken a few years later and shows three generations of my family – GB, Dad, Mum’s Mum, Mum, and me. I was reminded of this photo by Barry’s death. It hardly seems any time at all since I was that 10 year old youngster and yet two generations have passed away since then and GB and I are the senior citizens of the family. how time flies.

My thoughts go out to Barry’s wife Linda.

  2. I agree with NanU...each post helps me see someone elses point of view about how this wonderful man effected their life! I loved this..thank you for sharing, Sarah

  3. I like how Barry helped you reflect back to your pram days. You look like you're on a Harry Potter audition in the second photo.

  4. These pics do remind me of Barry! What happy little guys you were.

  5. yes the photos and the humor work to remind us... we all are of the same generation - though my mother is still alive we are the older generation now - the grandmothers and grandfathers.... it doesn't seem possible does it?
