Adolf is now at least 72 years old and last Sunday, having lain motionless over the long winter within his bomb damaged shell, he was brought out of his box in the shed and into the sunshine in the hope that he may have survived another year. With the encouragement of the clement weather, some sunshine and Carey who looks after him he had indeed survived, and for much longer than Gloria Gaynor could have even imagined.
Adolf is now back in his garden looking for some fresh dandelion leaves. He is featured in this week's Ham & High newspaper.
Carey has even polished his shell.
