Re: It's still the simple things in life that make us happy...
Memories. Standing outside Shephard's on Station Road waiting for the 87 to Marsden. Walking down the long, wide flight of steps to the Velvet Beds end of the beach. Renting a square changing tent and deck chairs. Stewed tea out of a flask and soggy egg and tomato sandwiches. Knitted woolen trunks that sagged when they got wet and filled up with sand. No expensive electronic gadgets that cost so much people need benefits. What a simple carefree life we led. We were poor but happy.
