That was a considerate gesture on your part chic..your son-in-law will have taken away equally pleasant memories of you. A similar gesture was<quoted text>
My daughter was married to a man from The United Kingdom. Lived in a little town called Rainford, near Manchester, or Liverpool. I loved his accent and manners. Unfortunately the marriage didn't last, but I will never forget him. He called potato chips - crisps and said that it was scarce to find peanut butter at the grocery stores, so I would send a few jars from time to time. While they were living here for a few months, I served my then son-in-law some tea and biscuits on an English tray. He got a big kick out of that and said that he wasn't much for tea, but he appreciated it. I felt rather foolish but he was so sweet about it that I wasn't offended in the least. I never met his family but spoke with them a few times on the phone. So warm, polite and very family orientated. My son-in-law-s favorite dish was Kidney Pie and I never learned how to make it, although I was planning to before they broke up. I have a few pics of my daughter and son-in-law that were taken in a local ale house in Manchester. It has either closed or was renamed. Not sure, but I think it was called "The England and Child", or is it the Eagle and Child? Can't remember!
made to myself when I was over there, so I know how the memory will last.
The 'Eagle and Child' remains..and being a Northener, I am familiar with Rainford, it is half way between Manchester where I was born, and Liverpool, where I have lived. Boundaries changed and it now is declared to be in Merseyside. Lovely people.
btw would that by ancy chance be steak and kidney pie? Tasty!
Glad to see you back 60's chic...
