A few months ago I posted this photo of the 90-year-old woman below. A lovely lady who has been running her little sweet and cheap toy shop for a truly astonishing half a century. What I didn’t know, however, was that her husband also helps out from time to time. A man of a similar age, and a similarly gentle demeanour.
But nothing lasts forever, and it was suggested that the end of this year will be time to pull down the shutters and finally call it quits. A day that will obviously be tinged with sadness, but hopefully there’ll also be a good deal of joy as they look ahead towards their well deserved retirement together.
