A Case of Mistaken Identity

Posted in Uncategorized at 9:48 am by Aleksan

Drifting in and out of what I hope is a healing sleep strange memories flit across my mind. It’s late in 1980 and I visit the opticians – they ask me – have I ever been there before?

No, I haven’t. But the records say you have been here before – it clearly states that Alexander Burnfield of Longstock visited this opticians a year ago – with dirty scratched and cracked spectacles held together with Sellotape….

Of course that was my dad I told them, who died earlier in the year. A wonderful connection, and it certainly made me laugh! Farmer dad with his scratched spectacles done up with Sellotape! Proud of him..
