a campanologist... not very original I know.
We don’t know him that well although he is doing a superb job of our house alterations.
What to get him for his 60th on Saturday. Suddenly it occured to me to give him my father’s schoolbell which I hate to admit has stood neglected in my many and various gardens since his death in 1990. I haven’t done anything to it to tart it up, part of the fun for him will be I am sure, to restore it to its former glory by sand blasting to clean and making a new handle.
He’ll appreciate my entrusting him with part of my family history, or at least I am pretty certain he will? And I’ll be more than happy knowing it’s going to a worthy owner.
Dad, I know would be pleased.
