Just a quickie: I wanted to share this pic from our Christmas visit to my dad's house and draw a pleasing generational link:
In the foreground, held by me, is the wooden biplane which I helped No.1 Daughter to make and glue together. In the background is one of the embroideries my dad used to work on during his countless months at sea with the Royal Navy. He made models when HE was a boy in the forties and fifties, and he always encouraged me in my Airfix building in the nineties.
Like noses, the hobby seems to run in the family...!
