I've put Donna Summer under this thread as her music for me evoked so many memories of early relationships and hot summer nights. Such a pity she had lung cancer which whatever she may have done or not done singing in clubs, halls etc in the days when smoking was allowed couldn't have been a good thing. I was reminded of poor Roy Castle and his passive smoking related condition. RIP Donna you gave me some lovely memories and is till love the music.
My daughter was working on Wall Street on 9/11. I didn't hear from her until the next morning - she walked back to Brooklyn, though she was advised not to, because she had two cats! She won't talk about it, but I remember her saying 'You don't know what you're breathing in'. She doesn't live in New York any more and I just have to hope no permanent harm was done.
Thank you, when. She has never had children, and it's probably now too late; this is of course a source of regret for me, but maybe, just maybe, it's for the best. We'll never know for sure. When she rang me the next morning, you can imagine the relief, mingled with the thought of all the people still waiting for their loved ones to make contact.
