I started watching

Last of the Summer Wine a few years ago - when my uncle died. It somehow seemed appropriate and it made me smile in a time of grief.

I have/had always gotten along with the older members of my family (grandparents, great aunts and uncles, aunts and uncles etc). I liked to listen to stories, jokes etc even when told several times. I liked playing cards with them, and listening to them talk long after I had gone to bed.

Which is why I guess I like a show about older people. And when husband asked me what I wanted to see on our trip to England I answered "Holmfirth" (where the show was filmed). And why for Christmas my husband got me the asked for dvd player that will play english dvd's.
