I was sorting out my Dad’s stuff after he had died; you know all the usual junk that you’d find in an eighty year old man’s home who lived by himself.
A few bits might go the op shops; some furniture could be sold or passed on while the rest would be best taken to the tip.
There were a few sentimental knick-knacks such as photographs and memorabilia that could be kept if they had some memories for the family but for the rest…I just sighed.
It was when I was sorting out an old dresser I found something that intrigued me.
It was a much used copy of a 78rpm record going back the 50’s entitled “Rock Island Line” by The Lonnie Donegan Skiffle Group.
I cried as I remember my mother telling me they used to play it incessantly when she and Dad were courting.
