   Readers' Letters
   Have Your Say!
  

Dear Sixtyplusurfers
 



Here is a my poem which I wrote for my twin grandsons called 'Timothy Tickleskin'.

This is a picture of Nathan, one of the twins.


Timothy Tickleskin

Here in the warm darkness of your blankets at night lies Timothy Tickleskin, that itchy, tichy mite
He likes to get quite close to you. He likes to make skin creep.
Then make you want to scratch and itch when you really want to sleep
He’ll tickle all around your nose and make you want to sneeze.
Then tickle your toes till you lift up sheets and then you start to freeze.
He’ll tickle all around your ears and make you scratch your face.
Then tickle madly all night long and then all over the place.
He has a lot of arms and legs and an awfully silly smile.
But that’s just part of his tickly charm and his haughty, naughty style.
He doesn’t have many enemies. He doesn’t have many foes.
For Timmy tickles everyone where ever Timmy goes.
And if you’re being tickled you’re never really sad.
In fact you feel like giggling.. Can’t be all that bad
Tim said to his mom one day. “Guess where I have been?”
I’ve been down to London town to tickle our great queen.
I tickled all the dukes and earls and those of royal blood
Then tickled princes in their cots. It made them all feel good.
And when I left the Queen was pleased. I made them all feel well.
“Come back anytime you can” And she rang the royal bell
Then I went into a theatre to hear a fellow sing.
And I tickled all inside his throat till he couldn’t sing a thing.
He blamed it on a ‘frog-in-the-throat’ and the crowd began to laugh.
And the man became quite famous so I had his autograph.
Then I went into a hospital to have a look about.
And I saw a poor, sick man. So sad, with a terrible touch of gout.
So I tickled underneath his arms till his sides began to throb.
And he didn’t mind the needle when the nurse was doing her job
Then I popped into a zoo nearby. Cheered up a miserable ape.
and a trouble old lion and a bat that was crying.
It was such a jolly old jape.
His mom was so pleased with Tim stories that she felt like she wanted to weep.
Said Tim “Yes, that’s what I’m here for but right now I’m so tired I could sleep”
Then he went for a kip then woke up with a skip and felt a real tickling pain.
So he put on his hat tickled the cat and went off on his travels again.

John Davies


Dear John

Thank you for sending in your fabulous poem and the picture of your adorable grandson, Nathan.

I'm sure the twins must have really enjoyed the poem and hearing you read it to them.

Dear Sixtyplusurfers

Make Christmas Special

It's the little things that make Christmas special. Putting out a carrot for Rudolph, or playing charades after lunch.

These memories cost nothing but will last long after the gifts have been unwrapped.

Lee Hall, Kent

Dear Kent

Little touches definitely make Christmas and other family gatherings special.

I hope you had a lovely Christmas and I wish you a very Happy New Year.

Readers' Letters

Sixtyplusurfers Star Letter 

  Dear Sixtyplusurfers




I would like, through Sixtyplusurfers, to thank a wonderful lady for being there for me.

My beloved wife, Ann, passed away two years ago and as I am disabled. I wondered how I was going to manage. Step in my great friend. Helen Morgan.

We first met almost 40 years ago but simply lost touch, but thanks to Facebook we found each other again.

Helen is not in good health due to COPD but rings or texts me every day to make sure that I am well. She regularly pops in to see me and I really look forward to seeing her.

Thank you Helen, you are a wonderful girl and you give me the will to carry on.

This is Helen and I at Conwy in North Wales about to enjoy a lovely ice cream.


Brian Knowles, Merseyside

Dear Brian

Thank you for sending in your fabulous photograph and telling us all about Helen. I can see she is a lovely kind lady, you look like you are having a great day out together.

It's wonderful how you can keep in touch with people on Facebook, and it's great that you managed to reconnect with Helen. We wish you a very Happy New Year and many more days out and delicious ice creams to come!

We are delighted to tell you that you are the winner of the Sixtyplusurfers Star Letter Competition. The prize is a Teapot and Infuser from Suttons. We hope you enjoy sharing a cup of tea and some cake with Helen.

Jenny Itzcovitz, Editor

 

  Dear Sixtyplusurfers

 
 

After three sons and two grandsons we have been blessed with a gorgeous granddaughter. Here she is ready for her first Christmas.

Lyn Choak, Plymouth

Dear Lyn

Thank you for sending in your picture of your granddaughter all dressed up for her first Christmas. You must be so proud.

 

We hope you had a great Christmas and she had a lovely time.

Jenny Itzcovitz, Editor

 

  Dear Sixtyplusurfers

 


Hello. This is my 8 month old kitten Boo. She is a cross between a pedigree and a Persian, which makes her a very special and unique pet.

Not only did she sleep in my arms when I first got her but she still regularly comes and lays on my lap.

I adore her and couldn’t be happier with a pet like her.

Daisy Craydon, Bedfordshire

Dear Daisy

Thank you for sharing the photo of Boo. She's gorgeous.

I can see she makes you very happy. Pets are such a great comfort.

We'd love to hear about other readers' pets.

  Dear Sixtyplusurfers

 


Our garden project needs pretty lights,



Chevaune Stanley, Morayshire

Dear Chevaune

Your 'garden project' looks stunning. The lights are very pretty. And the gorgeous leaves around it are lovely.

 

We hope you enjoy spending time in your garden house with your family and it brings you lots of happiness.

Jenny Itzcovitz, Editor

 

  Dear Sixtyplusurfers
 

As we begin our new year, I was reminded that we should plan to start each day with counting some of our blessings, however small they may be.

We went on an amazing trip to Pompeii, where we saw ruins of that whole city, and how everything was destroyed in a moment by that earthquake. People were covered in ash in the position they had been standing!

Looking at those ruins, you could see mosaics in their homes, their shops and bakeries and so many fragments from their homes. It was fascinating, and I would definitely recommend this place to everyone.

At the same time, it brought to mind how a person’s life is so unpredictable - as we never know what's around the corner.

So for 2018, make it a point to fulfil your dreams, enjoy every moment, cherish every person in your life, and finally - count your blessings.

Joan Apperley, Bristol

Dear Joan

Thank you for writing in. It sounds like you had a fascinating trip to Pompeii.

The earthquake at Pompeii was absolutely horrific, and seeing the ruins so close up must have brought it all to life. Such places definitely highlight the unpredictability of life and how you have to enjoy every moment, cherish every person and count your blessings.

We'd love to hear about other readers holidays places you have visited that have left a strong impression on you

In the meantime, we wish you and all our readers a very Happy 2018.

Jenny Itzcovitz, Editor

    Sixtyplusurfers Competition 

    Win Codenames


Win Codenmes from Asmodee UK


Sixtyplusurfers has teamed up with Asmodee UK to offer two lucky readers the chance to win Codenames, a great word game for all the family.

Codenames is a social word game with a simple premise and challenging game play. Two rival spymasters know the secret identities of 25 agents. Their team mates know the agents only by their codenames. The teams compete to see who can make contact with all of their agents first.

Spymasters give one-word clues that can point to multiple words on the table. Their team mates try to guess words of their colour while avoiding those that belong to the opposing team. And everyone wants to avoid the assassin.

The game works very well with 4 players if you prefer to guess without help. Or you can add more players if you prefer lively discussion. There is also a cooperative variant where a single team tries to achieve the highest score they can by playing against the game itself.

Each game has one key that reveals the secret identities of the cards on the table. The spymasters choose a key card randomly and don't let the field operatives see it.

Recommended for ages 8 years and up, Codenames is suitable for 2 - 8 players. RRP is £14.99.

Codenames from designer Vlaada Chvátil and publisher Czech Games Edition won the 2016 Spiel des Jahres, Germany's game of the year award.

This is intended to highlight games of an outstanding design that would be ideal for German families - and if you happen to belong to a family of some other nationality, there's a good chance that you'll enjoy the game as well.

Codenames is available to buy from www.amazon.co.uk
