Fay Mackenzie and company

Fay Mackenzie (my mum) immediate left, with work colleagues. I think the lady next to mum is called 'Dorrie'? I recognise the lovely smiling face of the gentleman at the back as Davy Ross. Hopefully, the others will be named also? Would this have been taken at Invergordon Social Club?

Definitely Invergordon Social Club - Chrissie Mackay and Marie McCue worked there for years. I think Margaret Thain also did, but I'll need to ask her daughter.

Dorrie Daniels married my cousin Roy Daniels, nice to see her in this picture looking so happy. Chrissie Mackay and her husband George were great friends of my mother...Davie Ross must be Davie Coon? who worked on the Harbour Master's Launch with my grandfather.....thanks for the picture Heather...

Harry, I'm glad you liked the picture. I remember mum speaking of Dorrie (and Roy) so often, which is why I remembered who Dorrie was.

The person between Dorrie and Chrissie is Betty Fry.

Heather, did your mum tapdance? - silly question will explain again.
Added by Caroline MacLeod (nee Zawinski) on 17 May 2007
She certainly did Caroline! How did you know that?! She did Highland Dancing and Tap Dancing.
Added by Heather Anderson on 18 May 2007
She actually taught me to tap dance. The first dance I learned with her was to tap along to the song "Mouldy Old Dough". Haha.

After I sent you my reply of the 18th May Caroline, I began to vaguely recall Mum telling me that she had been teaching tap dance to one of 'Mrs Zawinski's daughters'! It's lovely how some memories come back when someone triggers something off. Mum would have loved to have read your comment. It is two years this Saturday since she died.

You're right Heather - how one thing leads to another. I have just been thinking of what fun your mother was. We used to have such a laugh when she was teaching me, and she was so full of fun and enthusiasm. But it wasn't until I saw the above photo that I realised it was your mum. I used to call her Auntie Fay.

It was lovely for me to read what you had to say about my mum Caroline. Yes - so many people have commented on what fun mum was and what a good sense of humour she had. With what we have both commented on re each others mums, I think it is appropriate to quote here, a saying on a little fridge magnet which I have: "IN 100 YEARS TIME NOBODY WILL CARE HOW MUCH MONEY YOU EARNED, BUT THE WORLD MAY BE DIFFERENT BECAUSE YOU WERE IMPORTANT IN THE LIFE OF A CHILD". How true that is.
