This is Absolutely true.....
First some Family History- when I was first ill, in April/ May 1995, I was taken into University College Hospital- in London. After I was, for want of a better word, 'released' I moved down to my Mothers Bungalow- the one that her parents (my grandparents) had owned.
In 1997, we both visited the USA (Visas were not needed, for 'Britain's', at that time). We were with an English lady, my Mother knew, in New England- before visiting New York. We stayed with a British Diplomate, that my Mother knew (some how🤷♂️), in the centre of Manhattan. Whilst there we took, what is called the Circle Line, a boat trip around the Island- getting caught in a Storm, right at the Confluence of the Rivers! Whilst making this Trip, I took a 'Number' of Photos. We put ALL our Holiday Photographs, into an Album, which I now have.
My Mother sold the Bungalow, roughly three years ago now, to the niece of some friends from the Church. They 'Sub Let', the place, and their Tenants did some considerable damage- by all reports (I haven't seen it myself). The Owners now have Possession, once again, and have had to spend a great deal of Time, Effort and MONEY on restoration.
Amazingly, apparently 'lodged/ stuck/ pushed?' behind one of the Wardrobes, was four of our Holiday Photos.... from 1997! Trevor, our friend from the church, has Emailed me, these pictures- and yes, they Are some I thought we had Lost.... (the originals will be returned to me, or my Mother, as soon as is practicable).
I swear that IF 'this' was written, in a book, it would be deemed 'Far To Far Fetched'. They say that 'Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction', don't they? Does anyone else have any such True stories?
