Crimson’s Creative Challenge #32 – The Crypt


Crisp my aged companion was browsing through a handful of brochures when she uttered a rare exclamation of delight.

The crypt of the famous author, Arthur Snurd, was just a few ks away from us.

The number 28 bus took us to the crypt site. Crisp was intrigued by the letterbox on the front gate, saying NO Junk Mail as she suggested it would fall on deaf ears anyway.

Arthur Snurd, besides writing the definitive text, ‘How to be Grumpy and Enjoy Yourself’ was also deaf. Crisp had read his book on the plane trip and had delighted in reading sections to me, thinking I needed to know these things.

The crypt, of course, was locked but there was a plaque on the side that detailed his life and bibliography.

Crisp told me it was a treat to visit his last resting place where she was sure he found peace.
