Wow - Jiffy Would Have Been SUPER, SUPER Annoyed

As I sat having my cup of tea in my conservatory after lunch there was a loud "crash" ... and a cat landed on the roof.  Oh boy, would Jiffy have been super annoyed!  He had read the bit in books that say dogs & cats are natural enemies!  Oh well, the cat went & the roof was OK, and once I had recovered from the shock I enjoyed the rest of my cup of tea!

So, in a minute I have a last set of photos of Jersey for you.   I could keep on posting photos for ever, but this will be it for you all now.  Hope you enjoy, and have enjoyed them all  - it was a super trip.

But, before I post this -


22. Have you ever donated blood? If not, why not?

Hate to say it, but no.  I have gone to do it 3 times over the years, but each time had health problems that cancelled out my offer.

A Final Glimpse Of Jersey

All of these photos were tataken in St Helier, which is the capital of Jersey.

Throughtout the island there are these towers, made during the Napoleonic Wars, and are called JerseyTowers.  Some are now made into holiday homes, but some like this one is awaiting a final decision -

On the edge of one of the parks is this run of graves.  UK & USA WWII ... many are of sailors with no name (ie those whose bodies washed up on the shore uring the war).  All the graves have a date of death, or a date of burial.

King Charles II lived on the island for some time during the civil war and this is his green velvet jewel box, from about 1649
