There is a man in Phoenix, Arizona, who makes wonderful shirts and decided to send one of them on a round the world charity tour. You can read about it here.
So far it has spent 18 months on the road and been to eight countries.
I read Walt’s post about it and thought that if the shirt was coming to the UK on its tour, maybe it would like to visit Derbyshire. And so it was arranged.
I had all sorts of plans to take its picture in front of Chatsworth House or Hardwick Hall, to show the rest of the world how wonderful Derbyshire is.
Unfortunately, after one of the mildest winters so far, the shirt arrived the day before the snow fell. So instead I spent the day clearing our drive, and my dad’s drive, and took the shirt’s picture with a snow shovel.
Derbyshire weather – you can bank on it to ruin everything.
The shirt will be on its way to sunny Spain tomorrow. Bon voyage !!
