Trying to determine what is going on in the world by reading newspapers is like trying to tell the time by watching the second hand of a clock. Ben Hecht

hesadevil's throat is sore. Sacrifice a few goats that it's the result of yesterday's open fire and not the dreadful hamthrax flu.

Healing vibes speeding your way.

Thank you. I'll be very cross if it is the 'flu as I haven't had the vacination yet, even though I'm in the 'high risk' category. I suspect it's not, though, no sign of a fever, just the throat.

There's a sore throat bug doing the rounds but it seems non hamthhrax related I haz a touch of it too. Feel better soon

Thank you. My temperature's normal so I'm hopeful it's just a sore throat.

I do hope it's just a sore throat and not anything more sinister. We are getting our swine flu shots today plus my blood pressure has gone up and I need new pills. I am surprised that your postal workers didn't wait until Christmas to go on strike thereby making it even MORE inconvenient for everyone. I fear that you may never receive your parcel. I remember that you, or it may have been MWNN, told me that letters had been found some years ago at your tip .. just thrown there by the posties. Perhaps try looking for your present there!!!!

The painting has arrived. I love it. Is it one of Lyle's or a collaborative project? It's hanging in the guest room with the Lowry prints. Thank you so much and thank Lyle.

Oh, and the customs charge - 10% of the value stated on the form! Bloody tax man taxes everything. He's a vampire I tell you, and not a sexy, attractive redeemed one like Spike.

So glad painting has arrived and that you like it .. what a relief. It's all Lyle's work .. I love the chickens. He's doing a large one on the same theme which is shaping up nicely. Will send a photo when finished. I was unaware that you had to pay customs duty .. I don't think we have to here .. I've certainly never had to pay on any of your gifts or on any bits & pieces bought from the USA. It seems ridiculous that you have to pay to get your own present. Now that I know this, I will put a small value amount on any future parcels. Did MWNN find his hankies at the back?

I love the chickens too. Which one is me?

Lyle forgot to take a photo of his "masterpiece" so we can't remember exactly what all the chickens looked like .. put if there is a very pretty one .. then, that's you!!! Perhaps, if you have the time, you might take a photo to send so that he has a record of this painting for his library. Love Jen
