Thanks Cathy. The book is an easy read, and gives a wonderfull description of his view of life as a child, and his childhood. Although he travelled a lot, he returned to Slad where he was I believe, very much a part of the village community (I remember seeing him at the local pub!) and where he died a number of years ago. He is buried in the local church yard. Let me know what you think of the book!
This is a wonderful picture. Thank you, Lorna. I haven't read Cider with Rosie but I will now that you recommend it.
Thank you both treker and Jack.
Nice set today, Thanks
Thank you Ank. Good night. I am a bit more of a night owl than you I'm afraid!Jan, Cider With Rosie was a book we studied at school. I loved it!
Oh right, Stroud - got my 'S' village names mixed up. :-D Yes, I've heard of Laurie Lee but I've never read anything by him. I'll look up 'Cider with Rosie.' Sounds good!
And this is the favorite of the set. They were all very beautiful. Thanks Lorna, I go for my last doggy walk now, and then bed time. Good night friend and sleep tight.
Thanks Jan. Slad is almost a mile from where I live on the edge of Stroud. I walked there with dogs and camera, as I was too lazy to de-ice the car and take them to the common or George's field yesterday! Do you know of the poet and author Laurie Lee? Slad is his home village in his autobiographical book Cider With Rosie.
What a pretty village, Lorna! This is where you live? The one nice thing about winter is that you get the chance to see the buildings and houses and church that the leaves and shrubs hide in the warmer months.
