Grief is such an ugly thing. Glad to see they’re moving on.

Thanks to the picture, I realized that I am in mourning too 🙂

Thanks for this post John, as I had no idea he’d actually died! I’ve been travelling with work (near your neck of the woods, as it happens) and with no time to spare. Only today was I aware of the spate of murders in Suffolk. Perhaps by Christmas Day I’ll have caught up with the news!
jb says: Sometimes it’s great to avoid the news. At least for a while.
That’s a great shot – excellent caption.
