Yesterday I spent the afternoon in a little country town about an hour from here called Ommen. I wandered around the market
chatted with a few people ( everyone talks to you in Ommen ), had a coffee and sandwich ( hearty eaters in Ommen ) and admired the murals in little side streets but didn't see a single tin soldier.
Having seen the poster for a new exhibition at the Nationaal Tinnen Figuren Museum,
So I'll have to go back to admire the howdah ... and I will. Besides I must find out why there's a very long horse near the goat on a golden egg near the museum that wasn't open yesterday .......
And a post-script ....
Just in case you're looking for a companion ....our local paper has a weekly column highlighting one of the animals in the nearby refuge that needs rehousing. This week it's Ethan, a very little cockerel with an extremely loud voice.
"Not recommended if you've got neighbours, but he's friendly and would love to come and live with you if you've got some space and a couple of hens." Wonder if anyone's adopted him yet ........ ?
