Thanks Nan for the Standard, its been arriving on the dot since the middle of December, and is digested slowly by me before it goes to the mess; when it gets there is disintegrates pretty fast, and is finally used by grateful batmen for starting fires. So you can see that its a swell present to have. I thought I was going to lose track of old "Superman", but I can see that his part of the war effort is pretty substantial. To say nothing of the pearl necklace and the car. I had a lot of fun opening that parcel. Matter of fact I was a bit dull about the necklace and car, then it burst on me in a blinding flash of flame.
Life in the woods is a bit dull, but healthy. When I heard we were coming down here, I bought a new pipe and some carpet slippers, and have I used them. However I know a cute little WREN (WRNS) fairly near here, so I may promote that for a few quiet evenings.
Well cheerio Nan, write me the 'local dirt'. Love Nan Geoff
