Dr Johnson

Today we celebrated my dad adding doctor to his name after several hard years of work researching Primitive Methodism. We’ve had a lovely afternoon in the garden. A few dabs of rain, but it’s largely stayed nice. Lots of family and friends came from across the country.

The brass band played a nice mix of tunes. I particularly enjoyed Ilkley Moor.

Alice had a nice day wandering the garden settling around on different people.

The goldfinches weren’t put off by all the people.

Alice was pleased with herself trying to lock everyone out.

It’s been a lovely afternoon seeing family and family friends we don’t see often enough. We’re all very proud of my dad’s hard work and it was nice to celebrate it. Even if he had been reluctant to do it.
