A week or so ago a lady called Eva, the author of one of the blogs I follow, wrote a wonderfully evocative post about a time gone by, when her mother had talked her father into buying a Mangle. Eva wrote her memories so beautifully that it caused followers to recall our own memories of days gone by. My own memory was so vivid that I wrote about it in a comment on Eva’s blog, – just to make Eva laugh really, – but it also caused a laugh with a couple of folks who said I should share the memories on my blog too.
Now although I’m not entirely certain that anyone will be really interested, in the spirit of sharing the smiles – and perhaps bringing back memories from your own childhood … I share my woeful tale of my encounter with …. The Mangle Monster!
