Lovely John. I like the 'rub' of caring enough about his appearance not to mind wearing his mother's make-up (or was the make-up the result of a goodbye kiss signifying a shift in relations?)I really enjoyed this, it made me stop and think.
Oh, I do remember ...Best wishesRalf
lovely... I like the idea of 'war paint' covering his 'plooks'
ha! Paul's comment makes sense :)wishes, devika
nice john, a mother would do anything, would she not ;)
oh dear, now i remember my freckles ...
