Mrs Trellis is a close observer of the contemporary international scene:
Dear Mrs Erdogan, she writes, I don't know what all the fuss is about you wearing a headscarf. We all do it, don't we dear, to hide the curlers. If men wanted curly hair, they'd go round with headscarves too. Fortunately Mr Trellis, my late husband, lost his hair in a poker game, so all he ever needed was an occasional polish. By the way, forgive my indiscretion, but is your hubby as miserable as he looks?
