I got sent an article today. My last news inspiration story:
“The mystery behind who keeps tying shoes to a huge ash tree remains a riddle despite a £265,000 National Lottery investigation.”(http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/howaboutthat/4173582/Shoe-tree-mystery-defeats-265000-investigation.html)
I spent a good chunk of the end of my life on ‘the mysterious shoe tree’ investigation. You always seemed bemused by it, but it paid well. In fact, if you look closely you might recognise one of the shoes. We never did solve that case, but I do have a few nice things written into the will for you.
Don’t tell mum.
