Hope For Planktons Everywhere?
August 8, 2011 § 10 Comments
There is hope for planktons everywhere if the news I read in the paper yesterday is anything to go by.
Vi Stannard is to marry Derek Walker next month in Suffolk. She is 94 and he is 84. Although she separated from her first husband forty years ago, she did not believe in divorce. Mr Walker proposed to her 12 years ago but she has only just become free to marry him following the death of her husband, aged 97.
Part of me thinks: Mrs Stannard was never divorced so never a proper plankton so perhaps her story isn’t really relevant to planktons and doesn’t really count.
Another part of me thinks: this is just downright good news, and good news for planktons everywhere. Perhaps we should never give up hope.
