RIP, Dad.

Don't ask.

Fairygirl, you are very kind & considerate, but the fact is I really didn't do anything.

Dad had returned from the war 20 years or so before I was born and never motioned his wartime experiences except to explain that the scars on his body were the result of being shot & being taken POW...as children we were left in no doubt about asking too many questions.

Must have been a terrible shock for you, Pansy.

We usually eat at the Rutland Arms Hotel when we visit Bakewell and found the standard to be quite good. Apparently Jane Austin stayed there whilst writing 'Pride & Prejudice'......Pemberley being modelled on Chatsworth House of course.

So sorry to hear this, pansy.

Hope to have a good day (thank you)..... the weather seems set fair.

Pansy, this is totally irrelevant I know, but I'll be in that same Bakewell town centre on Thursday of this week visiting the annual Bakewell Show.

David you mean the lost gardens of Heligan. The garden is now beautifully restored to its former glory.

 

Yes, Lyn...I think you're probably right. I picked-up on it during a recent TV program.

A reflection from the Eden Project....of the 12 gardeners who enlisted for service  in WW1, just 3 returned. This gives some idea of the scale & magnitude of the loss of young life.

Hugs are always welcome, so thanks for them....but I did nothing. I do however feel privileged to be the son of one of those millions of heroes who went through so much for us all.
