I was introduced to this grave and its timber cross by a lovely young lady who told me that she was in charge of Grimstone Heritage because she knew how to use a camera and had her own teeth. Actually she was quite hot. She showed me this cross at the northern edge of the graveyard and pointed out this tiny carving on the side furthest from the church. It was, as you can see, in danger from the moss, the nearby hedge, and far from getting the loving attention it deserves. It was suggested that this mouse might be by the same hand, Robert Thompson's, that carved the 28 mice in the furniture at Southwell Minster. I;d like to think so.
OK ~ I'll bite ~ why the Volcano tag for this little green mouse Russ? ~ A nice little story ~ Ciao nick
Oh yes... there was this time,.. in boot camp,.. when a volcano stopped all the aircraft traffic. I noted this short period.
