Asides

Letter

I have many old books in my house, collected from second hand shops, flea markets and church fêtes over the years. Today the Minion discovered this in a dusty old copy of Black Beauty (publication date unknown)…

It seems pretty old. I wonder how it made it all the way across the Atlantic.

Was it a love letter from a soldier to his sweetheart back home?

A letter to a little girl from her pen-pal on the other side of the world?

A secret missive smuggled across the ocean in a children’s book?

Okay, okay. That third one wouldn’t require a stamp. But still. If this stamp could talk, I wonder what tale it would tell.

The Minion says…

Came into the house (my home office is in an outbuilding) and The Minion came running saying “Daddy, Daddy, I’m watching the sun-story!”

That would be Tangled.

Other favourites include the ball-story (Inside-Out) and the balloon-story (Up). (The balloon-story causes no small amount of distress once the balloons start popping.)

And Moana, but for some reason that’s just Moana
