Everything seems to be going tits up at the moment. I won’t bore you with the details, but I didn’t feel myself. That’s summat me old Ma [bless her] used to warn me about. She was wrong . . . although I do wear glasses!
I was expecting a packet in the post from Down Under, but didn’t expect it arriving today. Bucked me up no end! Nestling inside was a unique hand folded kangaroo leather coin purse – made in Australia, of course. I was thrilled. The smell of leather wafted under my nose; was it one of those souvenirs of Australia made from a roo’s scrotum, I wondered
I would like to publicly give my warmest thanks to my friend RAY SWINNERTON for his thoughtful and welcome gift. Thank you Ray! I see that you even included 50 cents towards a coffee.
