Ritu from But I Smile Anyway is our first host for Haiku Hub and the prompt is “heritage.”
Two weeks before the son’s wedding, Him Indoors took his great granddad’s watch from the drawer and looked at it one last time. He wore it on his wedding, a pocket silver watch from 1909, with a silver chain and a silver medal at the end. The medal was won by his great granddad from rugby and it still has the encryption of his name and the year. Ah, great heritage! HRH the son was delighted when we presented it to him. He’s always been proud of his heritage, being half Filipino and half British. It was nice to see him happy.
