Lord of the Bargains

The Ringwraiths from The Lord of the Rings
The Ringwraiths from The Lord of the Rings knew where to find a bargain.

Last month, as many readers will know, our holiday house in Cellardyke was trashed by paying guests from Poland. Amidst the damage, burned carpets, kicked-in doors and general disarray we quickly discovered that they’d taken (or lost) our VHS copy of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. They didn’t take the box, just the cassette.

I’ve just bought a replacement copy from Amazon UK. For only 25p plus P&P (£3.00 in total.) Bargain!

  1. I know, which is a real shame. I worked alongside a Polish man called Ernie at Claridges Mill, Selkirk for a few years. A lovelier man you couldn’t hope to meet. His warm greeting always made me smile, with a broad grin and open arms he would call out “Helloooo Garrresss, how ARE you?”

    He still attends my home church, St John the Evangelist.
