A sad tale of an old man and his dog. He used to have a wife and two dogs, now he has Buster. Then Buster went missing. The old man somewhat losing his grip on things, thought he’d walked the dog over the hill as usual and lost him. The whole village was alert, everyone on the lookout. Other dog walkers extended their range, friends and others walked for miles, not shouting, because Buster was deaf.
Where’s Buster? We still don’t know, but every time anyone goes out in the village, eyes are peeled for an ancient, deaf white dog.
April 30th 2021 would’ve been Captain Tom Moore’s 101st birthday; in recognition and in remembrance of his achievement, a new challenge was announced by his family. They challenged ordinary folk to complete a hundred somethings to raise more funds for The Captain Tom Foundation – ‘whether you bake 100 cupcakes or walk 100 laps – help celebrate Captain Tom’s achievements.’ The official ‘Captain Tom 100’ has now finished, but I’ve challenged myself to write a 100 word blog each day for 100 days. I started on May 1st and when I complete my task, I’ll donate £100 to his Foundation.
