CCC84: His Old Sweetheart

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #84

Grandpa used to say he’d pulled the letters out of a bag to name his boat.

And we believed him.

Until we were clearing his things from his boat after he died, ready to sell the old berth, and found a letter.

From his wartime sweetheart. Postmarked Wehlau
