"Cruising to Islands everywhere - no nursing home for me!

When I get old and feeble, I am going to get on a Cruise Ship. The average cost for a nursing home is £150 per day. I have checked on reservations and I can get a long term discount and senior discount price of £100 per day. That leaves £50 a day for:-

  • 1. Gratuities which will only be £5 per day.
  • 2. I will have as many as 10 meals a day if I can waddle to the restaurant, or I can have room service (breakfast in bed every day of the week).
  • 3. The Cruise Ship has as many as 3 swimming pools, workout room, free washers and dryers, and shows every night.
  • 4. They have free toothpaste, soap and shampoo.
  • 5. They will even treat you like a customer, not a patient. An extra £5 worth of tips will have the entire staff scrambling to help you.
  • 6. I will meet new people every 7 or 14 days.
  • 7. TV broken? Light bulb needs changing? Need to have the mattress replaced? No problem! They will fix everything and apologize for your inconvenience.
  • 8. Clean sheets and towels every day, and you don't even have to ask for them.

Now hold on for the best! Do you want to see South America, the Panama Canal, Tahiti, Australia, New Zealand, Asia, or name where you want to go? The Cruise Ship Company will have a ship ready to go so don't look for me in a nursing home, just call the cruise line."

 

from Treasure Islands booklet produced by Captain Donald Woodhouse within the last 2 years - in 1948 he was admitted to the Office of Evangelist in the Church of England and on the 30th July 1948 commisioned as a Church Army Officer - currently Lay Minister of St Lawrence Church, Eastcote.

The silky wormwood forms a low mound of mink-fur-soft much dissected silver leaves. We grow a patch of it at the edge of a path in our dry climate garden. Whilst it looks delicate it is in fact easy to grow as long as it is given full sun and doesn’t sit in sodden soil for long periods. Silky Wormwood is equally happy in the rock garden as in the border.
