Sam’s Ses Challenge #9: Deliver

Welcome to this week’s Sam’s Ses Challenge.

Every weekend, Sam and I pick a word or phrase as the theme for the week. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to post something Ses-related that you think fits with this week’s challenge.  Don’t know who the Ses are?… click here to find out.

Your contribution can be anything you want, a photograph, a short story… anything. Visit the main Sam’s Ses Challenge page to learn more.

The fun will be focused here on my blog, but feel free to play along on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. Just be sure to link back to the challenge on whichever media you choose, to be certain Sam and I get to see it.

I hope you’ll join in.

This week’s Sam’s Ses Challenge theme is Deliver.

Here’s my contribution:

For all but 35 of those years (between 1950 and 1985), Hooky has been delivered to local pubs by the brewery’s shire horse drawn dray.

Talk about a Good Match…  the shire horses and dray look perfect together, and provide a wonderfully nostalgic glimpse of a less frantic time.

This week’s Sam’s Ses Challenge was itself partially inspired by the photo theme A Good Match from Ben of  The Daily Post.
