"A man cannot drift up into a corner of some green lane, and stay in his cottage out of the tide of life, as was once the case. The tide comes to him." Richard Jefferies 1883
A wonderful tribute to those who have given so much for our safety.
Agree...one of my son's is soon to go back into the Royal Marines having injured himself halfway through training, he lost one of his friends from his troop this year...sobering.
A friend of mine has a son in Afghanistan Goosey, makes me think every time the news mentions another soldier has been killed. Thoughts with you.
