The Valentine’s Day Baby 1962- Friday Fictioneers: 8th December, 2021.

Jesus might’ve been born in a manger, but at least he knew who his parents were. Better known by her flamboyant stage name, Susie Sunshine, Julie was mortified to discover she’d been found abandoned as a baby in the back of a 1956 Morris Minor parked outside Middleham Motors, Woy Woy and her genetic identity was an unfathomable mystery. Known as “The Valentine’s Day Baby”, she was conceived in May 1961, but still no idea. However, technology had improved. She’d finally found the courage to order a DNA testing kit. Now, the truth lay in the envelope on her desk.

Can anybody come up with any suggestions for Julie’s fictional father? I’ve left a trail and it’s not that difficult to follow. If you look at the map down below, It’s on the NSW Central Coast in between Sydney and Newcastle.

    I agree with Dale, but then humans have a long history of scorning those who don’t seem to have been born on the “right side of the blanket.” Blame the result, not the cause.

    Thank you very much, Penny. BTW the fictional father was British comedian Spike Milligan whose parents lived in Woy Woy, which is just 10 minutes drive from our place and has the “Spike Milligan Bridge”.

    Thank you very much, James. I was actually thinking of British comedian Spike Milligan whose parents moved to Australia and lived in Woy Woy. Spike used to come out here and lived the quiet life. There’s a local bridge named after him.
    Hope you have a good weekend.
    Best wishes,
    Rowena
