I enjoy making quirky and kind observations about other peopleand about places. I write short word sketches about certain situations that feel significant to me, I draw little cartoons. I reflect on particular t.v programmes, films and books as they grab my interest

For just a moment there I thought perhaps Grandpa had died, and the transporter was a hearse. Either way, dead or alive, it’s a suspenseful story, somewhat like those “write your own ending” stories for kids.

Thanks for your comment Jenne, guess I was being a bit fanciful, prompted by Ted’s photo.

Oh dear, I think Grandpa may cause some upset with this action! Still, I guess the grandchildren will be on his side.

Ha! That is a surprise “visit”, but at least he’ll be in his own home.

Thanks for your comment, I hope so too.
To let you know I’ve posted a review of your book on Amazon. I found it and original and intriguing story, skilfully written to combine the different kinds of reality. An achievement indeed.

Thanks so much for those kind words
May 6, 2021 at 4:35 pm
I’m not sure surprise is the right word – shock perhaps! Good fun 🙂
