Just boxed him up ready for a visit to the post office on Tues - he was asking about whether he needed a mask in his box - never happy that one :D

Well, I must admit to being somewhat bemused - haven't really experienced anything like this since my days at Warmington with that man Wilson. I received a telegram from the director of the CHLR telling me to expect imminently the arrival of the Inspector, in his crate. Crate arrived last week, and, well, admittedly there was some confusion, apparently the porter mistook the crate for an item for storage, and err, harrumph when I sorted the whereabouts of the crate - it was empty! :o
And then, whilst trying to sort out this incomprehensible muddle, the following postcard arrived.
Goodness knows when we shall see this fellow. I'm not impressed, as I told Elizabeth only yesterday. Reminds me of old Jones, the butcher. Tut tut.
So, it seems there will be a delay in commencement of our inspection, but we shall be ready. Poised for action. Indeed. Harrumph.

A Morecambe card posted from Mauritius. So easy to confuse the two as holiday destinations.
