Kat’s photo prompt this week is of a cluster of shiney new marbles. Led me to think about Britain’s colonial past, would you believe ?
UK Envoy We have marbles for you
Greek Curator You mean THE Marbles
U E Er yes
G C The Elgin marbles you stole from us
U E Look at these lovely marbles truly gems in glass

A very different take on the prompt.

What sent me off on that track was an old joke I heard : ‘Give Elgin back his marbles !’ – I can’t remember where from.

I loved your intro as much as your tale! Yes it is strange…how a simple object can take us to an obscure thought or memory. Well done. 😊
