Allatsea’s dad aged six.

A trip to see uncle allatsea at 143 Millmead Road just before Christmas produced this, the above pic of allatsdea’s dad aged six.

Here is he is then in 1936 in Erith Kent (now London apparently?), looking cherubic and holding a kitten. It’s difficult to reconcile my memories of the man, both good and bad, with this image. A conundrum of emotions is washing over me as I write, stifling breath and clear thought. It’s difficult to address and I wish now that I hadn’t started.

 

Roy William Howell, 31/10/1930 (Erith)  to 31/01/1986 (Rahimah KSA)

About allatsea

Sixty year old master-mariner. Absolutely gorgeous. Well wedged.....when compared to a Nairobi street urchin. Sorted, in that I haven't been in court recently. Hopelessly optimistic, terminally disappointed. Good with cats and other fluffy things. No musical talent. Generous to a fault provided it's someone else's round. Political centreist with far right and left viewpoints. A green activist from the hydrocarbon position with nuclear leanings. Averse to avarice but always happy to receive lottery wins, gifts, windfalls, legacies, prizes and wet sloppy kisses.
