So, I got back in one piece.
I had my doubts as I flew on the new carrier.
Which is really cheap.
But they were fine.
No free meal.
And R15.00 for a cup of coffee.
But they made up time and seemed to know what they were doing.
The church service was unusual.
I swear the priest had had a couple of toots.
He dropped the incense thingie.
And I couldn’t understand a word he was saying.
Marylou would have loved it.
The programme said there was going to be a hymn.
But, after the priest had prayed and people had said a few words, everyone got up to go.
And then there was the sound of music coming from outside the church.
That was too much for me….there is something about the bagpipes.
The church was a beautiful old building.
After the service we all went back to the house for drinks and snacks.
I have no idea why I cannot write UNDERNEATH the photo.
Marylou’s daughter in law had gone to a lot of trouble.
All the women got something personal of Marylou’s.
The next day her neighbour phoned Marylou’s son and said she did not need second hand stuff to remind her of Marylou.
We all got a sample of Guerlain that was in Marylou’s drawer.
The neighbour was insulted to receive anti-wrinkle cream.
I was chuffed.
I KNOW I have wrinkles.
I just felt she was so rude.
If she didn’t want the stuff she could have thrown it away.
It was given with such a good heart.
While we were at breakfast on Sunday she dropped her stuff off at the house.
Oh well it takes all kinds.
Some of them not very nice.
I shall treasure my mementoes.
More of my trip tomorrow.
