October 21st Anniversaries


A few years ago on October 21st, in 1805 to be exact, a little sea battle took place that has become well-remembered, as has the British Admiral involved, one Horatio Nelson. He won the battle but lost his life.

Another thing that happened on this date, but a bit later, was that Younger Daughter was born. She should have been named Horatia, but I wouldn’t want to impose that name on anyone. Anyway, rather fittingly, she chose to have her birthday celebration yesterday at Royal Natal Yacht Club. 

Happy Birthday R, and thanks for lovely grandkids!

    I’m confident you made the right decision to avoid the name, Horatia! It wouldn’t compliment such a lovely daughter. 🙂
