The Junior Henning Appreciation Thread

Some do like the mistreated and badly understood little boy called Junior Henning.
With a little bit of thought from Enid it might have all been so different......

Come with me to an alternate Finniston Farm...

Tick, VG, Pete! This could be the beginning of a most interesting series of alternative captions...

Brilliant, Pete! :-D Although a polite Junior might not be quite so much fun...;-)

I knew something was missing from the forums! :)

The Famous Five couldn't help liking Junior, especially George, but his biggest friend was Timmy.
Grand dad was also fond of the transatlantic visitors. "You're welcome to take any treasure you can find, Mr. Henning," he said quietly, almost in a whisper. "And make sure your lad enjoys his holiday, I don't want to see him helping with the washing up. "

In fact, it was when Junior offered to buy Anne's horse brasses that a beautiful friendship began that was to bridge the Atlantic and end up in a wedding. :-D Anne Henning was a leading horse brass expert in the states. :lol:
