Dick's Camera

I had to make a note of what happened with Dick's Camera ~ it is now over six years since he left us and we miss him so very much ~ I knew where the camera was but never thought about what may be hidden inside ~ Tom my Grandson realised there was a spool stilll inside the camera so suggested we take it to the shop and get it developed ~ so we took it to a shop in Fakenham I never thought for one moment that it could still be developed ~ the man in the shop had difficulty removing the spool and told us the camera was broken ~ I suppose after six years of just laying around it had deteriorated ~ so I had little hope of any of the pictures coming out ~

The following week we returned to Fakenham and Tom went into the shop to pick the pictures up ~ I fully expected none of them to come out ~ But they did ~ each and everyone of them even some that Tom had taken to finish up spool up ~

They were mostly of the Grandchildren they were just babies but it was so good to see them and there was one of Dick and myself sitting on the Sofa celebrating one Christmas ~

You can imagine how pleased we were ~ Tom and I stood outside the shop looking at the pictures ~ we were just so pleased and happy I cannot tell you how pleased we both were ~

It was like having him back ~ I wonder if he planned this for us so long after he left us ~ I like to think he did ~

There was one very Happy Wife Daughter and Grandson ~ who could have thought such a small thing could bring so much happiness ~
