    I spoke to the Queen when she visited Ely that year, She stopped and asked me if I lived in Ely. I was so taken aback that I lied, saying Yes I did, a
    beheading offence in days off old!!!! ;)

    During that visit, Mike's sister, Marie officially presented the Queen with a bouquet of flowers, at the time that she was planting a memorial tree at the Maltings near the river. ^:)^

    All seems a long time ago now. :(

    Best thing about 1977, apart from the uk was a nice place to live, (xmas not commercial, shops closed on a sunday, no mobiles, not as many disrespectful teenagers etc) was the release os Star wars :D :D :D.

    I remember seeing it at the cinema on the day it was released in may 1977.

    see it about 60 times since!
