Hello lovely ladies,
How are you all? I hope you are all well. Hubby and I are fine and healthy. We have made the decision (against better judgement) to go to Holland and visit my mother. She is 96, and when I heard that my cousin was going away and that my mother would be all alone over Christmas, we decided to catch a flight and go. So fingers crossed, it all goes well. The Netherlands will be in lockdown, but that doesn't bother us as we don't need to go anywhere. Everything will be closed apart from food shops. That is fine by me.
To be able to come back into Spain we need a negative Covid test, so we have already booked the test. My next T blog will be from Rotterdam and I'll tell you how the journey went.
My postcard for today is an interesting one. You guys across the pond will have recognized the photo, but I didn't know this was Mark Twain, the author of Huckleberry Finn. Wikipedia writes this:
Samuel Langhorne Clemens (November 30, 1835 – April 21, 1910), known by his pen name Mark Twain, was an American writer, humorist, entrepreneur, publisher, and lecturer. He was lauded as the "greatest humorist the United States has produced," and William Faulkner called him "the father of American literature". His novels include The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876) and its sequel, the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1884), the latter often called "The Great American Novel".
Faith's father has been found dead under mysterious circumstances, and as she is searching through his belongings for clues she discovers a strange tree. The tree only grows healthy and bears fruit if you whisper a lie to it. The fruit of the tree, when eaten, will deliver a hidden truth to the person who consumes it. The bigger the lie, the more people who believe it, the bigger the truth that is uncovered.
The girl realizes that she is good at lying and that the tree might hold the key to her father's murder, so she begins to spread untruths far and wide across her small island community. But as her tales spiral out of control, she discovers that where lies seduce, truths shatter . . .
So far i'm liking it.
That's it from me girls.
Have a good week and
Happy T-Day to everyone,
