Day 30 Colour Your World: Gold
Thank you for visiting!
Hey, please wait a minute, Mr Postman!
Of course I didn’t. I only asked him why this particular letter-box in Penzance wasn’t red. „It’s because this is Helen Glover’s hometown. As you know she won a gold medal.“
Did she now? Yes, now I saw it. Watching the Games isn’t one of my pastimes, so I’d never heard the name before. The plaque read,
Helen Glover – Olympic gold medal winner – London 2012 – women’s pairs
„What a pity it’s not real gold“, I said to the postman.
„In that case we would hardly still see it here“, he quipped.
(Aside: Wo er recht hat, hat er recht!)
I later read that Truro also claims Helen Glover as its famous daughter.
P. S.: Did you notice THE DOCK INN advertises in the same colour, a perfect match for the Royal Mail’s outpost?
