This is an extract of a letter from Andrew's wife(Ruth) to my grandmother in 1934

This time it sounded almost musical. Her lips curved into a smile.

Depicting how the world is tightly joined,
The pack is moving on the circle... Read more of this blog post »

We all make mistakes, but some of them are just plain ridiculous!
