Well done Frank. It's worth taking a look through the rest of the company's stock on ebay. I think they may have acquired some remainders from the old D&PG Publishing and there are a few more AZW titles, including a very nice hardback reprint of the Narrative (but just a handful of each). I have bought four in total!

Be in no doubt the packaging is a sight to behold! It took me ages to break into the parcel which had so much plastic tape binding it up I am sure the authorities took a close interest. So I imagine that it will be impervious to crocodile attack or a rampaging herd of wildebeest in your neck of the woods.

Frank,

We did wonder why Her Ladyship has postponed her reece until the votes are in...

‘Nuff said.

I saw an article recently about postal workers keeping chickens in the sorting shelves, I hope your sorting office is nowhere near Boulders Beach!

He was to produce a second book in 1886, he didn't because he was pressured, but I wasn't.

Hi Frank
Yes it's criminal basically your postage system , and after seeing the chickens in the post office that seemed to be getting cared for.... where as the mail isn't ! , what does that tell you ? , I see JY mentioned it a week or so ago to you ? . I sent a book to a chap in J'burg , it was 1 day short of a year when it found it's way back to my place ! , I decided then I will not send anything else to Sth Africa . I'll take books with me if I'm selling any , and hopefully catch up with the locals that I know who may want to purchase some . Only 7 days to go before heading over again , meeting up with Cam and several others while I'm at Isandlwana Lodge . How have you been ? .
Cheers
Gary

Sorry Gary, just need to correct one thing. The chickens in the post office are an integral part of the delivery system, class 2 airmail actually. they are class 2 because they only fly in very short hops. Class 1 on the otherhand we use Ostriches, ah I hear you say, they cant fly either ! Your quite right, however they do run fast, faster than the chickens, hence Class1.
hope that clears things up. Shocked Joker
