'Er Indoors' ( My Respect to 'Minder' that great tele,prog of some years back )

By Maiwand
I have before not placed anyone of my family in the spotlight but I hoped you would permit this gentle deviation from the usual nature and wildlife stuff as I rather like this shot of my wife Elizabeth ( aka Snowball )who has stood firmly with me for the past 63 years of our married life. There were many occasions during 25 of those years when life was extremely difficult as I served that time in the military (army) and we travelled the world together wherever the service permitted with our two children but the dear Lady took it all on the chin and we have now entered retirement.
We have started to form our own regiment now and thus far we muster 2 Children,4 Grandchildren, 6 Great Grandchildren and I ( very recent)Great Great Grandchild.
Thank you
My usual enormous thanks for all your support for the Siskin and particular thanks to Malcolm (msquared,Jennnn (Taggart) and Fred ( Fred 263) for the very generous awards.
N.B. Should you wonder Why 'Snowball' take a look at the hair colour.!!!!!!

A striking portrait not least because it is beautifully simple, considered and thoughtful. The tenacity and calmness of character you speak of shows through; definitely one for the regimental album. Lovely! SmileSmileSmile

A beautiful portrait. I get the impression that the model has seen the antics, adjustments, delays and fumbling by the photographer many times before. Great shot showing love, and serenity.

I did wonder if 'snowball' referred to her hair colour! 😁 A wonderful portrait of the missus, Ron, looking very regal - like the queen, but much younger, of course! 👍
