The strangest things turn up in junk shops and at car boot sales. This tin being among them!
It has no country of origin on it ... but I'm guessing America.
However, what is described as "Blueberry" looks more like "Blackberry" to me.
An internet search has uncovered absolutely nothing about Elizabeth's Blueberry Drops! I wonder if anyone who reads this has any information about the company or even just the country from which the tin came originally.
Meanwhile the dogs continue to provide innocent amusement and a bit of extra work. They do get on very well ... and for that I'm rather grateful. Eliot once again demonstrates his powers of destruction on the indestructible tough rugby ball for big dogs ... I'm not sure what sort of toy you'd get him that he didn't manage to shred eventually!
Holy Jesus, every day
keep us in the narrow way;
and, when earthly things are past,
bring our ransomed soul at last
where they need no star to guide,
where no clouds thy glory hide.
Church Hymnal number 189 verse 4
William Chatterton Dix
