...but in her life she was to connive,
Of beautiful buildings for Worcester,
Like the popular library - the hive.
Bill Phillips: apparently the bloke what "designed" it still hangs around the place like a spectre at a wedding.

I do appreciate a well-wiggled stern!
Bill Phillips: I thought you probably would Ray

I am trying to surmise whether she had an exciting life or her time in the lock keeper's house was so dull that she had plenty of time to write a book about doing next to nothing
Bill Phillips: She had a hard life as a child according to the blurb on the book but a happy one for all that. It is probably an interesting book. I am giving it to a friend of mine who is into local history.

Her cheshire grin totally gives her away, Bill. grin
Bill Phillips: She had a hard life as a child in the 1920s but apparently a happy one
...fascinating read but I surmise that the sequal as a young woman might have verged on risque.

hat the hell do you need a spare ball on your key ring for Bill .....oops don't answer that
Bill Phillips: This is a very special key ring Richard.

......I do recognize that key-chain smile....
Those are your keys.
I love the smile of that girl....I think she can tell a lot of stories.
What is the favorite colour of Ange??
Bill Phillips: She had a think and said....black! Or blue.

My key chain is getting a rather grubby now but is a happy reminder smile

I have to consult my dictionary to translate some words, but I can imagine that it might have been an interesting childhood! Are these books from your Lions' book sale? Sorry, I cannot say much because I don't know these books.
Bill Phillips: These were books I looked at to possibly sell on Amazon, for either the Acorns Hospice or for Lions. This one wasn't really worth anything but a good friend of mine will have it as he collects books about local life and history.

Oh, I recall - the key-chain- ball was made by Astrid!
Bill Phillips: Indeed it was and she tells me it is washable so i can restore it back to its' original state!

If you lack ample bows, rely on the stern to do the work.
Bill Phillips: A philosophy that will carry you through life Louis

Very good Bill - locks, keys and a sailor's knot as a keepsake.
Bill Phillips: It isn't always just Chad like randomness Mike. sometimes there is thought too grin
I suspect that might be quite an interesting book, I have read several concerning lives in times gone by.
Bill Phillips: I think it probably is Brian. a friend of mine is going to have it as he is very into local history

Are you clearing out your personal library, Bill?
Bill Phillips: gringrin no these were books that I was looking up on Amazon to see if they were worth listing. We get some good ones in the donations we receive.....this one wasn't worth anything!
She has a nice smile, Bill smile
Bill Phillips: She does actually Martin

Top shelf material then smile
Bill Phillips: Hahaha would be if Ray had written it!
Well your stern looks like it gets lower every year.
Bill Phillips: That is a very personal and hurtful remark Mr Shawn and I am not prepared to discuss its' accuracy
Are these the keys of success Bill?
Bill Phillips: That would be telling Richard grin
Very clever Bill. You're so subtle!
Bill Phillips: Hahaha I have been called many things but seldom subtle, and yes I do detest seagulls!

I bet she could tell some tales, though. I think some locks do still have lock keepers.
Bill Phillips: They were advertising for volunteer lock keepers on the canal here just recently Alan

I have not read this book but it seems a nice one to read..
Bill Phillips: It looks quite interesting. A friend of mine is going to have it as he is very keen on local history
who did things she shouldn't have oughter.
She filled up the pounds.
while doing her rounds,
to make sure they had enough water.
Bill Phillips: Very good Graeme. I was hoping someone would rise to the challenge
She's got a wicked look in her eye at that age!
