One of the first posts I wrote on this Blog was about our family dogs - the elderly German Shepherd, Gypsy and lively young Shar Pei Winston.
Sadly Gypsy had to be put to sleep yesterday afternoon.
She had had a very happy life right to the end  and given so much pleasure to her family for 13 years - her birthday was Christmas Day so it was always celebrated.
Goodbye Gypsy.  We'll all miss you.

"Dad's Army" is still one of my favourite television programmes and I laugh out loud at the antics of the Home Guard unit, nevertheless I always imagined that it was exaggerated.
So - imagine my surprise and delight to come across a display board showing these genuine World War Two instructions on what to do in the event of an invasion at Teignmouth in Devon. 

Firstly - Ring Mr Holland. Teignmouth 679 and ask him to give a message to Gunner Tanner who is his next door neighbour.
Another - Ring Commercial Inn, Bishopteignton 885 (Mr Mole)  Ask him if he would be good enough to send a message to Sgt.Satchell. 4, Clanage Street, Bishiopteignton.

We can only hope the German army were as slow as our civilians.

Oh, for a mobile phone!!
