On Tuesday morning, eldest daughter, Sarah, her husband Mikey, their daughter Lucy, and son Guy, came for an overnight visit. On Wednesday it was decided that we'd drive over to Sutton Hoo, and inspect the Anglo Saxon ship burial there. The top photo shows Lucy, thinly disguised as an Anglo Saxon warrior.
The above photo shows grandson Guy sturdily refusing pointblank to be disguised as anything. Quite right, too. People should remember how shy and sensitive we chaps are before trying to lure us into such unmanly charades!
After we got home, Lucy, armed with the usual grandfatherly tip, trotted into town, where there is a shop that makes superb sweetmeats, chocolates, etc., and purchased for her mother a quarter of a pound of kirsch soused, dark chocolate coated cherries. Above photo shows Sarah gloating over them. They hit the road just after tea time yesterday. A flying visit, but we thoroughly enjoyed it.
