Chesire Cat, The City of Smiles, & The Luck One

Cheshire Cat
One day Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a smiling Cheshire cat in a tree.

"Which road do I take?" she asked.

"Where do you want to go?" was his response.

"I don't know," Alice answered.

"Then," said the cat, "it doesn't matter.”

“Only a few find the way, some don't recognize it when they do - some . . .  don't ever want to.”  
― The Cheshire Cat
Aarhus: The City of Smiles
Wondering through the Old City of Aarhus was a déjà vu of 25 months ago in Cheshire . . .

The Cheshire Cat Inn was built in the early 1600s as a private residential building, was converted in 1676 into charitable housing for widows and was converted in the early 1900s into the Cheshire Cate Inn.

Nua: The Lucky One
Nua Lilly was born in Cheshire on 9 May 2012, and I had the privileged of meeting my little niece within two months of that great event. Her parents named her Nua (new) and The Lucky One.

'Sorry dear Nua, the lens was in your face even before you realised you woke-up from your little nap in the Cheshire Cat Inn!'

Happy birthday, Lucky One
