It seems like only yesterday, but we’ve actually been married 49 years. And here we are, a pair of Dusty Old Things. Fortunately our favorite activity is traveling together and looking at dusty old things!
The mural is a fanciful and fantastically detailed landscape of places with special meaning to the artist and Lady Caroline’s family.
Like so much of history, the story is bittersweet. Rex Whistler died in combat in 1944, aged 39. Another famous mural of his is at the Tate Gallery in London.
I feel incredibly fortunate to have married my best friend and to have had so many happy years together!
