Different Hair Colour

The pictures posted on https://derrickjknight.com/2023/05/23/village-life/ taken by Flo of her grandmother and Ellie reminded Becky of this one she had herself produced of Jackie and Flo in her own grandmother’s garden in 1997.

She e-mailed it to me last night. Here is the generational repeat. Only the babies’ hair colouring is different.

This morning we shopped at Tesco where, in a combination of the forthcoming bank holiday and school half term there were more than usual customers and less than normal products on the shelves.

There are two volumes to the edition of Dostoevsky’s “A Raw Youth” that I am currently reading. Today I almost finished the first one. I will feature the book when I have reached the end.

This evening we all dined on Jackie’s spicy three coloured fusilli pasta arrabbiata with which she drank Hoegaarden and I drank Les Aumôniers Séguret Côte du Rhône Villages 2020.


  1. You’re title of different hair colour intrigued me. At first I wondered if you had dyed your hair. Two pictures are very cute. Thanks for sharing.

  2. It is wonderful to have these photos and be able to look back. 1997 was 26 years ago. It is often hard for me to fathom the swift passage of time.

  3. Seeing these photos together is a treat. Jackie has the same warm smile and maternal care. Thanks for sharing these here, Derrick. This is my last read before slumber. I’m glad the day is ending on a happy note.

    1. Actually this is not considered one of his best, but it is very readable. Thanks very much, John
