Baby Sittiing!

At Long Last

Finaly it has happened! We had been asked to babysit both Annaliese and Maryrose, but only for 1 night. The idea was for Linda and Robert to go out and stay out for their 11th wedding anniversary.
Sandra made sure we were on time. We were there the day before! The plot was for Linda and Robert to  leave at midday. They left at 4pm. Maryrose was a bit reluctant to stop howling after they went, and Annaliese calmed her down.
Maryrose, happy and smiling.

I resorted to many activities to keep the little darlings happy. As did Nan. A walk in the park was good. Playing with toys was another option, but these two wanted more, so I took them both to the caravan.
Annaliese and Maryrose discussing their next move.

After prising Annaliese from the Computer, I then had to show Maryrose the finer points of computing.

Later that evening whilst Nan was getting Maryrose ready for bed, Annaliese showed me her collection of little dolls. I said something silly like "What a lot of Dolls". She then proceeded to set them up on Lindas Bed 
The Dolls. Not "Dolls" but Beanie Kids, I have been Told!

Annaliese has a  reluctance to brush her hair. So she volunteered to let Granddad do it for her.

Linda and Robert found their way home about midday. The Grandchildren were signed back to their parents and after a cup of tea Sandra and I started back home via Graham and Emma's.

Thanks for the reply - I found Gannan image on 14 Squadron archives whilst looking for John Hunter who was from Albury. I just wanted to advise - Cheers

Continuing, I have no information as to his time at 70 OTU other than he was on course No 13 and Passed. His name is Gerald Gannan who passed away in 1994.
