This time I went with Brenda ... we had been due to go out for the day nearer to where she lives, but I injured y back in a fall 10 days ago, and my old back injury has flared up, leaving me with a numb right leg, so I didn't want to risk a longer motorway drive.

In the school-room
Both have "Mrs", but neither were married
