As you can tell by my name I am from Armley. So were hundreds of years of my family
Doing my Ancestry now for over 8 years I have found Armley, Woodhouse, Burley
and Holbeck/Hunslet plays a big part in my family.
Different names and different centuries, I am LEEDS lol.

Thanks folks! So long as I can lay the table and eat what she cooks for me
and Wash or wipe up after, she's fine! (WHAT Thumb?)

She's recently had a Knee replacement op which is well on the road to recovery,
so she can't kick my shins under the table - yet!!!
Cheers!

Thanks Dalehelms - the two pictures are taken 44 years apart, at the beginning and end of a very happy chosen career. 1) Castle Lane Ilkley 1957 as an eager new starter with Samuel Ledgard 2) Piccadilly York 2001 with Arriva in my penultimate week..
