In a week of surreality

In a week of surreality, I learnt I am a MINI-me to a Nick Hodge in the UK and attended Ying Tong.

An email from my mother-in-law, who emigrated to Australia in the mid 1950s, connected more dots. And some family skeletons in the closet fell out.

Before jumping aboard the ship to Australia, she worked at the BBC – with The Goons! She typed their scripts and attended recordings. I am related to famous, and only a few steps removed from The Goons. I am connected to British Comedy royalty, even if only by marriage.
