Sometimes, when I’m feeling low…Low…LOW, something will happen to make me smile with thanks.

Many posts here talk about how being nothing special, living in a tiny village (population about 700) in the back of nowhere in England. All that is true.

But we (I) have much to offer the world.

Goddammit. Even Johnny Depp appreciates us.

Hemswell was a regular go-to place when I had my shop. Asking, “discount for trade, love?” was always a thrill.

From a first edition, rare book to a piece of furniture, to antique fabric, to garden ornaments, Hemswell never failed.

Johnny Depp found a guitar.

Though he arrived by helicopter. Bloody Hollywood Celebs, sheesh.
