We’ve had a wonderful week with family and friends here in West Sussex, and tomorrow we fly back home to Florida. There was one bench which I definitely had to post in Jude’s final Bench Series this year. It’s the one which my darling Mom-in-law donated to her village, in celebration of her reaching her centenary.
It stands half way up the steep hill to the shops, and replaces one which she used to use a lot until it was vandalised by youths about three years ago. The brass plaque reads thus:
Now at over 102-years-old, she is the oldest resident in her village and as you can see in this Christmas Day photo with her son, is still going strong.
Dear Kathleen, I wish you all the best and continued good health for the coming year.
