I seem to have cold (again) but unlike some people, I don't make a song and dance about it. I have refused a helicopter and everytime CNN ring me up, I just 'em to "Piss Off"...........

Some more old family photos I uploaded&coloured this week.
Some are of me & my brother Zyg as kids .Plus my Mum & Dad and Aunt Brenda..
Also a couple of Polish Funerals from the 1960's.
Although my Dad arrived in England during the war ( and joined the Polish Free Air Force Battle of Arnhem et al) , he never got an English passport. And because he deserted the Soviet Army ,early in the war, he was afraid,if he ever went home ,the Polish Communist Government might arrest him.
So ,apart from one visit back in 1965 to see his dying mum ( I was with him when we visited her in hospital:the only time I ever met my Grandma)
As a result, his only contact with the family was by letter. As the years rolled on, he/we recieved photos of funerals. His only contact with a past life......
Here are two examples of family funeral he couldn't attend in person.....
it's maybe why I ,in turn,was also attracted to photography.See the 12 colourised photos here:
