Paul; Sepia Saturday;

I think he missed his role in "Brideshead revisited."


Paul was Peter's, my husband's father. He was an artist mainly watercolours, a photographer and  he worked in a cigarette factory as designer. He was a brilliant entertainer,very clever, but he lacked the commitment to  his family. He got ill with Tuberculosis and died 1947 when he was 40 years old.

Mrs Benteli our pet Guinea fowl was with us for over 15 years. She followed me and when I called her she always answered. In the morning I fed her together with the chooks. Sometimes I gave her little treats. She loved oats with milk. This morning when I called her she did not answer. I was afraid something happened. When I went in search of her all I found was her feathers. Perhaps a fox got her. She was only a little guinea fowl but she was very cute and we loved her.

A sad end for Mrs. Benteli.
