Over the next few weeks & months I shall be introducing you to the various characters who meander in & out of my life. From the lovely people of wonderful Winslow who own shops, potter around town, & who just are noteworthy & quirky to my family.
Today we shall concentrate on Mr Wright
Our little family consists of myself, Mr Wright, our daugther effectionately know as 'The Hobbit' & the hound, Ty.
Mr Wright is a man that lives up to his name!
He's the sort of man you would require if you were ever stranded on a desert island.
& in fact I do have a 'Stranded on a Desert Island ' checklist of attributes
Tall, Dark & Handsome - check
witty - check
dry sense of humour - check
able to hunt wild animals - check
The ability to cultivate crops - check
(Mr Wright's day job is champion Farmer)
Capable of building a shelter - check
Capable of converting that shelter into a treehouse - check
Not complaining when I festoon said treehouse in bunting - check
Mechanically minded (in case of happening upon the remains of our plane, boat etc)
Able to light a fire (very important) - check
Able to cook dinner on that fire & then make a cake - check
In fact his only failings are that he doesn't like books & doesn't dance.
