More unexpected disasters involving that ever-present threat, the copper.
I wonder if Ernest Dunlop actually paid any attention to what his wife did each day. Did he wonder how his clothes appeared clean and dry each time he needed them? I think that a man who hides money under the copper is not overly smart and possibly deserved to lose it.
If the man of the house was silly enough to hide some cash in the oven here he would deserve to lose it too. Of course that would be because I saw it and confiscated it.
Three hundred £1 notes would have been quite a brick. I’m surprised that she didn’t notice it when she lit the fire. Of course, there is always the chance that the story is made up too. Five years is a bit of a long time to wait for your payoff though. I wonder how much money he burnt to have his ‘evidence’? Too bad for him if he burnt more than the £30 the bank gave him in return for his handful of charred fragments.
