Trafalgar day is also the Missus birthday - Sarah Horatia Slominski.(We will be hanging out the bunting and firing a 45 gun salute.)I used to know a Sue Hardy who claimed to be descendant of Victory skipper Captain Hardy and maintained that Nelson's actual dying words were:"Kismet Hardy,kismet"
... and anticipated a successful Broadway musical comedy.
Stephen - What better way to celebrate your lady wife's birthday than by bringing her to a fun evening of lively dance and song. A special rendition to Mrs Slominski could be arranged and a great time guaranteed. P.S. Could we borrow the bunting and the gun please?
That's a lovely idea Jenny, but the kids have got their own plans for her!My wife also shares her birthday with our next door neighbour and a close family friend whose middle name is ..wait for it..Nelson!Anyway, I am sure you will have a great evening.BTW. Did you guys know that Nelson's French opposite number,Admiral Villeneuve was taken as a POW and billeted at the 'Crown' at Bishops Waltham from where he was given leave to attend Nelson's state funeral?
Didn't know that Stephen. Thanks..!
