Bob's 70th Birthday Mini-book

Post by lyndaejane on Thu 16 Apr 2015 - 13:11

Found the book on the Stamps Away website: perfect for a film-lover, as Bob is.


Underneath the bottom section of the frame, it says "starring Bob Carey and his friends". Then, on the next page, there's The Story So Far, with a bit of a take on the original film - "small-town Southend-on-Sea" and all that. Will just show you one of the four pictures inside:


Those are the original six friends, plus Steve, and including Babs (in the middle), who we lost to MS in 2004 and my best friend Christine (bottom right) who we lost to cancer in 2011. Bob is next to Steve, with Eddy next to him, and bottom left is Ray, who is my oldest friend.

Even managed to get this for the back cover:


Took me several days to make, but it was worth it. We've known each other for close on 50 years.

Ideal for a bloke, they don't go mad on these things but a nice size and format for a man, it will certainly be a conversation piece and holds some very special memories.
