Mary Slater (nee Davies)- Hay Festival

"We live within 15 miles of each other. I don't have a photo of Mary as she is today. She recognized me from my blog" - Ann
Mary Slater (nee Davies left,) Ann Shaw ( nee Rumsey( in bed) and Caroline Boyce (nee Havard)
Standing in the queue at the Hay Festival yesterday a woman next to me says:"Are you Ann Shaw?"
" I was four beds away from you in hospital. I am Mary Slater."
You could have knocked me down with the proverbial feather. I couldn't place the tall distinguished looking woman standing there with anyone from my childhood in Craig-y-nos.
Nows of course when I checked my blog I know instantly. This is the red-haired girl who went on to become a senior manager within the National Health Service.
My apologies Mary!
