You don't know what you don't know.......
Let me explain the photo.
I am sat in the car with Ma and Pa.
Ma has not left the house for many months.
We have just been to buy her a lightweight
walking aid to boost her confidence.
At the traffic lights I remark that I hate
to see beautiful buildings looking a bit
sad and sorry (this one is up for sale).
Pa says to Ma 'remember that room?'.

I ask why they remember it?
Pa says 'we had our wedding night drinks in there'
Was is a party? I say.
'No....just people drinking' says Ma with a sniff.
