happy birthday Millican

A woodbine and a quick read of the paper.

Millican Dalton was born 154 years ago today at Neathead, Alston. I would urge you to read widely about his life.

I had the great pleasure as a youth of living in his splendid ‘hotel’ in Borrowdale for half a year. We would chat every morning as i made coffee on his belvedere.

His was a life lived fully. Happy birthday marra x
