Happy St. George's Day
My grandpop, from Sheringham, Norfolk, loved making wooden toys for me and my siblings.
Since it is St. George's day I thought I'd share an image of the St. George and the dragon
toys he made, which I loved a great deal. Sadly the dragon is missing a wheel.
I'm not sure how St. George's day is celebrated, but apparently, my Lancashire grandad would
wear a red rose in his lapel, which of course is both the symbol of England and the symbol of
If I go out this evening I will be sporting a red rose in the same fashion. Otherwise I am watching
the 1966 film version of the English comic series 'Modesty Blaise,' with a large mug of coffee, some
wasabi peas and a chocolate and cream dish.
Happy St. George's Day to you all!
