My Dad was born in 1926 – the same year Queen Elizabeth made her entrance into the world. Dad used to impress us by saying (with a twinkle in his eyes) that he went to different schools together with the Queen.
We thought that made him very special.
Today the thought occurred to me that his little namesake, Leon Gordon, will be able to carry on with that mischievous statement, given yesterday’s birth of England’s future King!
Dad, even though I can no longer see you, your quirky humour continues to make me smile. Thank you.
