As there was some interest in my mentioning in an earlier post about my first car I thought I would give you a little more information and show you a picture.
From about 1963 to 1970 I lived in Knightsbridge London with my first husband, we owned a Chauffeur driven car hire company. Leslie Caron, and many other stars, lived very near to us, and many were customers. Leslie was one of our customers and for some reason had a Morris Traveller that she no longer wanted and gave it to me.
I was wanting to learn to drive so it was an ideal car for that purpose. I wish I still had the car.
Leslie Caron, born on July 1, 1931 in Boulogne-sur-Seine, was a French
actress and dancer. She died on September 19, 2014 at the age of 83. My favourite films of hers are GiGi and Chocolat.
On a visit to my parents in their new house in Northampton these photos were taken. The field showing at the end of their new garden is now a large estate of houses. Who knew then that one day I would be living in one of those houses with the best husband I could ask for.
The poodle was named Elvis but my Dad said he could not stand in the garden calling "Elvis" so he became Fritz.
My Mum died two years ago she would have been 100 next week.
