What the Dickens!

It has been there for a long, long time, but somehow I haven't found myself being able to walk in through those doors. Maybe it was because the first time I noticed it was way back, over 20 years ago, just after I had read Charles Dickens' "Old Curiosity Shop" for the first time. If you remember, that was a rather poignant tale; and I had all those associations in my mind.

Good to see that the shop still survives, and doing well, by all accounts. Must get over my childhood prejudices and go in there someday soon!

I think you must visit...in fact, you might find me there as people have referred to me on occasion as
"Ye olde curiosity."

Whatever could they mean? ;-)

Have a great weekend.

@ Jacob: A-ha! So that's one more reason why I must visit there soon!
