I should have included these photos in the last post about our reunion where you saw a bunch of oldies celebrating 50 years since we were at teachers' college. Well this is how we looked 50 years ago.

I am 3rd from right in front row.

They showed us around the town. Firstly we did a tour of the lovely retirement village where Josephine lives.
Now days Young is famous for its cherries and the Cherry Festival held in November.
Many country towns have had their rail links closed and the railway stations are now used as Information Centres and museums. It is hard to understand why this service to country people has discontinued. Colin has a difficult time getting to Young on public transport to visit his mother.
We took a stroll along the town's main street. 90 year old Josephine led the way. She is amazingly fit and healthy.
We ended up in a quaint shop selling crafts, conserves and fudge called "Poppa's Fudge & Jam Factory."I couldn't resist the fudge, yummmmmm chocolate mint.
