STOP PRESS - Truth no longer good enough.
(What about the Freedom of Information Act then?)
(What happened to the Human Rights Act? Eh?)
The photograph is of Ralph Winstanley, with his two daughters, on his 80th birthday in January, 2001. My younger sister, Linda is shown on the right.
My father died on 23rd April 2004. He thought he was recovering from recent chemotherapy. Other people thought otherwise.
The photograph below is his salute to his tormentors. The one legacy which my father left to all of his four children was tenacity. We will use it wisely.
Now this is the 'little woman'. Not so little either. Serious businesswoman, so she tells me. Responsible for most of the 'new build' in Moss. So that's quite exciting.. if you like to look at such things. She bravely rushed out to judge horses' teeth and withers, threw away his things; and had her horse shod, for his funeral three days before he died. Such a caring person.
Nothing like 'getting it all sewn up in advance', is there?
Must be psychic, I should think.
Oh, yes. Let
me give you
This is the woman who kept saying that my father was being dreadfully sick and was sicking up blood - when he wasn't. Why would she do that, I wonder? Was she trying to get help for him?
I just don't understand it at all. Perhaps it's all to do with the fact that she has 'wild' hair? It seems to change colour as you watch - 'grieving widow grey' - 'whispy blonde' - 'sort-of-gingery' - 'brownish' - whatever will it be next? Green? I do know that she's environmentally friendly. She is noted for her encouragement of slurry throwing - as a Service to the Community - as well as her lovely new houses. So, perhaps it will be green .. or back to 'grieving widow'?
This is Nina Clayton's daughter, the lovely Rosemary.
Now she's the one who checks for blackness in fingers and toes, as a precursor to departing this life. She's utterly fascinated - and must be quite an expert. She's also quite good at describing 'reaching'. Now that's what happens just before you're sick. Scuse me, I feel a 'reach' coming on.
This is Frazer, Rosemary's husband.
He's the one who is rather versatile at prescription-fetching from wide areas. Other qualities of his are telling a man when I might be arguing - and presumably when not.. though I haven't heard him do that.. yet.
Letter the Two Primary Care Trusts (Doncaster Central and Doncaster Eastsat on for 2 - yes TWO - months
Dr Kevin Lee's letter of 18th May 2004 - which Doncaster Central and Doncaster East Primary Care Trusts Chief Executives sat on, for 2 whole months, before giving it to my sister. (Comment: not marked Confidential, so OK to use?) During the 2 months, my family had 2 properly set up meetings with Chief Executives of both Primary Care Trusts - and the Complaints Manager. This is an absolute disgrace!
And now.. what happens when you tell the truth, in this benighted country?
Ah, you guessed! The letter, using - presumably - the Primary Care Trusts' funds, (which should have been used for the care of patients?) is below.
So, there you have it! Democracy at its finest! A prime example of all that's wrong and peculiar in England - well in Yorkshire anyway.
Now, If anyone's reading with the hope of gain, that is not a Yorkshire-ist statement, and thus belting in under the racism laws. I'm from Yorkshire stock - both sides of the family. Not that I feel either proud or ashamed of it - just grateful to have stayed alive for so long. Life is such a dicey business, don't you think?
Speak tew ya soon!
Charlotte pp Ralph Winstanley - who is still dead.
