You could race up and down the Devil's Jumps a few times and pretend

Lots of teddies still in this house - mine, Mr Chicky's and the Chicklets'.  Couldn't part with them.  and I remember stickle bricks, and fuzzy felts too

our walk was good - managed to dodge the showers.  Feel like I deserve the Christmas cake I am now devouring

Frank - plenty of posh houses still left in Frensham.  Bet they all have daft white carpets too.  Lovely to hear tales of round here nearly 70 years ago

Great photos from yesteryear Steephill.  

Here, by way of contrast, are a couple of my Hampshire Heath on a rainy day in January.  Thought the orangey browness of it all couldn't be further from Fairy's icy peaks


 But striking in its own way. (Its Ludshott Common Steephill - only a hop,skip and a jump from you now)

No - Fairy didn't have to be rescued, but she might do if she was daft enough to set out in weather like today's.  But she's not (that) daft, so the rescue teams are free to save others' skins.

Fair warning Frank. Not sure there will be heathfires on Ludshott Common today, but adders are always present, so you're right, never completely safe.  

I've seen what the heath fires can do round here too - both Frensham and Thursley have suffered in my time here - and it is truly humbling what can happen when they take hold. When was your time in Bordon?  Sounds pretty nightmarish. Glad you were able to protect people.
