A bench given with love.

My house is at the bottom of a big hill.To go into the town you have to go up the hill. To walk into town is rather nice - through leafy tree lined ways - and it takes about 25 minutes, but that hill is a killer.

I noticed, not long ago, that a new bench had been placed at the top of the hill and on it a small brass plaque that made me smile. I discovered that my neighbours had bought the bench for their grandmother who regularly walks into the town up that hill. Do you know what it says on the bench?

" 16 minutes to town. 9 minutes to home."

I love that...
