Update for 21st July 2023


This is the first update for a while because it has been a bit of a bad year for me. My wife passed away 1st May 2023 and It was a shock to the system. We had been married 55 yeas and known each other a year before our marrage. We had a good life together, marred only by the last few years, where she was in a care home because sad to say, I couldnt cope.


I had been writing a book for just over ten years and I think that was the ony thing that kept me from going under. The book is now finished and published. It can be purchased on Amazon for any one who is interested.  The Name of the Book is The Fengan Chrnicles. Written under my own name. I never realised there were so many people with my name who write books. Maybe nect time I will have to use a pen name. I have got four other books half finished and hope to have another one out by Christmas or new year.


If you look at the Obituries you will see that we have lost quite a few old mates over the last few years. So if you have time have a quiet moment and remember the good times.

Sorry to all who cantacted the site via the Guest book page. I have been very lazy over the last 18 months or so. The second covid jab did not help as I have been lethagic and tired ever since I had it. (some may say that there is not much change there then) Also during this time my wife has gone into a care home. I feel the guilt heavily but what can I do. I can just about look after myself and trying to keep her clean and helping her with the toilet etc left me exhausted.


There are a few new names on the Guest book that you may want to check out.


The Obituaries of coure continue to be added to so that page may also be worth a visit.


I will try to update a bit mor often in future but I cant say how often.


Well thats it for now take care of your selves and dont let the COVI get you.
