Tippy’s litope

Things stick in the mind

indelible memories

prompted frequently

There is a story to this.

My brother, Tippy, lent me a 12 inch wooden ruler when I was about 13 years old and which I appropriated. Written on it was ‘Tippy’s litope’. I never knew what it meant, and I have asked him since and he doesn’t recall it. Anyhow, I associate the phrase with any and every ruler I use and half expect to see the words written on them. Funny how some things like that stick.
