Ah, there you are. You might have been wondering where I was, of course,since I was absent without leave yesterday, well, I shall tell you.

I also heard about talking dogs, mummies (the shuffling, bandaged kind, not the procreative female kind, although both descriptions fit my own mother fairly well. She has a great range of curses as well, you should hear her if she runs out of flagolet beans...), mongooses on the Isle of Man, Sasquatches... and I met a great hero of mine, Jon Downes, who signed a book for me and made my weekend complete.
Right, I'd better go - I've been seized with the urge to go to Sainsbury's, for some reason....
