Happy Fathers Day

There was a sudden last minute rush in the Birthdays Card Shop. Not only because it was Fathers Day.

But also because Birthdays are closing down and cards were greatly reduced.

From being a Four Card Shop town, Abingdon is now only a Two Card Shop town.

Dawsons - roof leaked. Hathaways - death dutied to be paid. Just Toys - went broke in Abingdon and Didcot. Birthdays - 2 cards shops is enough when most shops sell cards nowadays... Most shops have a different story.

I think Hathaways was more of an anachronism at the end. How many baccy shops do you see nowadays? Apparently it originally opened in the 1930s and - not surprisingly - his children didn't want to take it on.
