I am a survivor of the Polio epidemic in the UK during the early 1950’s and over the past twenty five years have been experiencing the demoralising affects of Post Polio Syndrome ( PPS )

I have written this short autobiography as a means to easing my way out of a period of particular tiredness and anxiety, and was suggested by my Psychologist. I hope that it makes you smile and maybe cry, although this is definitely not my foremost intention.

Many of the episodes are drawn directly from memory at the moment of writing and so, over the passage of time, occasionally; events may be betrayed slightly differently than they should. I have, however, endeavoured to be frankly honest in my depiction of the first fifty years of my life and must stress at this point that I regret nothing. I have, for the most part thoroughly enjoyed my life and truthfully hope that there are many years and experiences still to be encountered.

Dedicated to my mum and dad, without whom I would never have survived, thanks.

My autobiography ' Come Smile With Me' is availble from Amazon,

or downloaded as a Kindle PDF file for reading on line, from your Kindle device, or from your computer

and enjoy !

    From December Cora and I are going to spend a couple of months in the Philippines to escape the cold winter months, and one of my favourite pastimes out there is to go fishing.
    I don't usually catch anything of note, but the experience is great and you never know, that prize winning wish is just waiting for me ! :-)
