Jay and I have an embarrassing picture where we are being bathed together in a tin bath age about three. In this instance, we are both united in trying to track down offending copies of the photograph.
As we grew up we met at holiday times and amused our selves playing games, building tree houses. We always had fun and Jay was more '
