The Terrible Twins

My two eldest daughters aren't really twins, but might as well have been. For six weeks of the year they are the same age.

Marie-Claire and Helen

Although Helen is the taller of the two, she is actually the younger. They are about six or seven here. A few of years later, they went out and committed a terrible crime! When going to our local park, they took a short cut through the cemetery. They saw a fairly recent grave with pots of flowers all over it. Nearby they saw a neglected and rather ancient grave, so took a pot of flowers from the first one and put it on the neglected one. It made them sad to think that nobody cared for whoever was in there. Someone called the police! They bought them home - two very scared 10 year olds. They explained to me what had happened and gave them a warning not to commit such a heinous crime as this again. I know that technically it was theft, but they performed this act out of the kindness of their hearts, and it scared them to have to be brought home by the police at such a young age. As far as I know, they've never committed a crime since.   

Helen - don't know who owns the helicopter!
