      Ian's family and my family were on holiday at the same hotel in Southern Ireland in the summer of 1966. Ian was my age - 17 (there are just three weeks between us) - and his sister and my sister were also about the same age as each other.
      I remember that holiday had a lot of laughter attached as we went about together. Ian finally went back home with his folk to Belfast and I returned with mine to Edinburgh, but we kept in touch for years, and managed to meet up once or twice after that.
      Then he got married and moved to England. Our letters became less frequent. He divorced and remarried and along came his first child - a daughter. He phoned me to tell me - and also sent a photo. Soon his son arrived on the scene - on my birthday too - and I got another phone call. However after that we seemed to lose touch, though I often wondered about him and wished I could trace him again.

      In January 2001 I received an email from a website that reunites old friends. It said that Ian W..... was trying to find me, and enclosed a message. I couldn't believe it when I read the message. It was definitely "my" Ian! I replied immediately and about five minutes later he wrote back! It was great! We have emailed regularly for the last few years and met up in 2002. I really think we both expected a romance to happen- he was on his own again - but sadly the spark just wasn't there! However we are still good friends, and on my visit "down south" we got together again for a couple of very happy days.

      This isn't one of MY photos, as the ones I took were pretty awful once I saw them on the computer screen. It was taken by another friend of Ian's, so I have used it along with items from Kim's All That Jazz mini kit and alpha. Thanks Kim. It may take a long time, but I get there in the end! (using your kits!)

      I can see were it would remind Jazz of "puttin on the Ritz". It is the Hat and the swirly on the name I think. Great layout and story!
