My General Details
- Mildly updated 15 May 2020 -
Call me Tim, and mine's a lager / beer / vodka / cider, most alcohol really but rarely sherry; that only belongs in a trifle.
Earth, third planet from the Sun, quite nice in places
My mother Doreen Lillian Harris (nee Hook) who popped off in 1997 (aged 60). My father, Anthony Colin Harris (preferred to be called Colin) who went to the betting shop in the sky December 2012 (aged 76).
Three brothers, Gary, Andrew, Lauran. Good guys, all of them, I've got used to them by now. One sister, Carmelle. She is a brilliant and flawless person, although as I'm allowing her to edit this, she'll probably alter my comments.
Brother Gary and wife Debbie have two daughters, Megan and Eleanor. Brother Andrew and ex-wife Caroline have two sons, James and Ben. Lauran is engaged to Emma.
My last cat was named Charlie, got him in 1999, when he was about 8 weeks old. He sadly passed on 13th June 2017. See the Pets page.
I also have many uncles, aunts, cousins. Bloody hundreds in fact.
|When I grow up I want to be:||An author. Never
done it. Written loads, thrown most of it out.
I also dreamed of owning my own TV station: it would have been named HRVT (Harris Regional Vision Tele). I've used HRVT as a name in other ways since, i.e. edited DVD videos and associated DVD covers, plus the site domain hrvt.org that I've had for some time.
