Retired No One Told me! Weekly roundup…Roses, Rambutan and a Rescue…

That was the week that was… A thrilling rescue by some very brave men who risked life and limb and for one he did forfeit his life but what a legacy he has left and he will be forever remebered in the hearts of so many…

There is also Roses, Rambutan and rice salad… Also, lots more so get yourself a drink, settle down and have a good read…

Fruity Friday last week was the luscious Rambutan fruit…fully in season and a joy to eat… It looks scary but the fronds are so soft, a pretty fruit known as Chom Chom in Vietnam which means messy hair.

We then had young Paul from over at Sally’s with a delightful post on Roses…Which invoked many memories for me from my dad’s rose garden to crab apple jelly and the belly ache I used to get from eating the crab apples and the beautiful dog rose… A plethora of memories…

The bread did indeed come after the crumpets… My disaster with the proving of the yeast was a learning curve…Use a bigger container… Carol

The watching and the waiting culminated in a most daring rescue all 13 are alive and well… A testament to the bravery of men and women from around the world…Instead of the post which was asking for the safe exit of the 13 … A video

 

Truly a miracle …
