From the Cave of the Oracle

Witty colourful snail mail from my clever friend Hilly.

Photographic postcards from Hilly sent from Egypt and upon return. I have over twenty of them and hope to one day put them in a book. On the reverse side feature the adventures of Indi and Silver.... "soon the Red Sea was lapping at their feet. Silver, being a ship of the desert, trimmed his tail, and camel padded across. The Mission had begun."

Mid May she heads to China and I am looking forward to reading more of her adventures. Now if only she'd get a wriggle on and start up a blog.

Will Indy and Silver be a-travelling to China, or will you perhaps have a new guide and noble stead... Han Guang Rui and a roly-poly panda called Blue Ming?

hugs, g xx

yes Hilary is a very talented and funny lady... we are all waiting and hoping for the book to emerge. The jaws will ache and the sides will split but it would be worth it.

Maybe he cannot read the health warnings on the pack.They could be holding incense sticks in their mouths to create an atmosphere,or it maybe mosquito repellant.
