CHRISTMAS will soon be with us and Huddersfield's seasonal lights will be switched on tomorrow.
I was put in mind of a heart-warming story from last year when Brian and Brenda went festive shopping.
The crowds in Kingsgate were heavy and they got separated. She looked for him in the shops they had planned to visit but with no success, so she bought items on her list, anyway. Finally, she started to become a little worried and phoned him on his mobile. He answered on the first ring and she asked him where he was.
In a calm voice, Brian said: “Sweetheart, you remember the jewellery shop we went into about five years ago where you fell in love with that diamond ring that we couldn't afford, and I told you that I would get it for you one day?”
Brenda choked up and started to cry and said: “Yes. I remember that jewellery shop.”
Brian said: “Well, I’m in the pub next to it.”
