My ancestors were slaves from India who worked in a paddy field in Guyana. My grandfather eventually bought the paddy mill and made sure everyone in the village had a job and built a school. That's pretty amazing, in of itself, but...
...he also hired my mother's best friend, Shakira, as his secretary. She was stunning, so he encouraged to her to enter Miss Guyana. She was the runner-up and went on to come third in Miss World, became a model and ended up marrying Michael Caine!
@StacebobT @DionFineToothed @Trindles_ One of my favourite pics ever too! I’ve had a scroll through too but realised, I never really took any pics as I’m rubbish! 😂😂
@DionFineToothed Just gonna have a trawl through my pics, though I have a feeling most of my photos are just of stuff I bought, and the odd snap at a party. Although I have a lovely photo of @AngelJ5, @Trindles_ & I which doesn't have you in but is one of my favourite pics ever 🥰
