Turtle

video

Cranky's 'Kidling' has asked us to put something up which makes us smile, in memory of his mother who died on February 6th. Here's my one.

H.I. was thinking about her sister who also died recently, and remembered this plastic turtle which her sister's husband (also deceased) brought back from Germany after his stint doing National Service after the war. He thought his little sister in law would like it. She still does.

  1. The sound track is Radio 4. It is the sound track to our lives, and is how I am always 7 hours ahead of Americans with their own news.

    2. That was a nice thing to say Rachel. Ever wondered why I don't answer the phone when you call for a 'little chat'?

    5. I am clearly as deluded about blog friendships as you were about pub friendships.

  2. Nothing wrong with the BBC, I'm a BBC 5 Live person myself.

  3. H.I must have had that turtle for a long time .,,, it must mean a lot to her. What a kind thought from her brother-on-law. Thinking of Cranky's family .... it's so sad. XXXX

  4. Very sorry to hear of Cranky. I feared that her long absence was serious. My condolences to her family. Cro x
