Where did you get that hat?

"Where did you get that hat? Where did you get that tile?
Isn't it a nobby one, and just the proper style?
I should like to have one Just the same as that!"
Where'er I go, they'd shout "Hello! Where did you get that hat?"

Our grandson loves his apple hat that was crocheted by his Mum.

Every little helps

Hi guys!

Now that our trip for the summer has been booked, I can’t help but think a lot about the poverty we encountered whilst visiting Asia last year. I’ve set up a GoFundMe to raise funds to help either an existing student or someone who would otherwise not have the opportunity to receive an education in Bali, Indonesia.

Even the tiniest of donations will make a huge difference, and if you’re unable to donate then I plead that you reblog this post as so it gets as much attention as possible!

Dear Fellow Road User,

It is evident that directional differentiation is not your strongest life skill. Allow me to assist you.

When I approach a roundabout and put my right hand blinker on, that indicates that I’m turning right, not that I’m going straight ahead.

Please keep this in mind next time you drive inattentively onto the roundabout and into my path without regard for my safety. My good reactions saved me from t-boning you.

You will also find that you won’t need to look surprised as no one will have to lean on their horn to get your attention. The look on your face was priceless but wouldn’t have paid for the repairs to our cars, nor any medical expenses, had I hit you.
