17/3/12 "The story of my life"- The Crewcuts
"Some day I'm gonna write, the story of my life" - This is the opening number for my 1950's musical which will be staged next weekend at the former Sergeant's Mess, RAF Binbrook. The gravestone stood out to me with it's coating of green and little detail remaining. In school assembly, I remember talking about the importance of the little dash on a gravestone between the date of birth and the date of passing on. That dash, how it is used and how it is remembered, here all we have is that Sheila was the wife of Mr Burton. I wonder if she saw the tree as a sapling now supporting her headstone?
