Only in Totnes #7

by

In our Narnian dell, with natural pool, cascading waterfall and fire pit was something I doubt even CSL could have imagined... a large outdoor pizza oven. Knowing that before arriving, I had planned. In the car were three tins of anchovies, a veritable small shoal of the tiny, tasty wrigglers! On our pizza night I couldn’t contemplate one without anchovies. Of 14 of us, 11 hated them... and only me actually craved them.

But the fairies dealt me a savage blow. The anchovies had completely disappeared. I searched everywhere. They must have swum away!

Eleven breathed a sigh of relief!

    Thanks Verity... it was most suspicious how the little chaps had disappeared!

    You need to pop 'round to 221B Baker Street and get Holmes and Watson on it, The Case of the Abducted Anchovies!

    Yeah, nice one Christopher! Neville even updated his icon for missing items;)

    Glad you can see the new icon, Verity (I cant yet!). These were the actual cans that went AWOL! Such versatile little creatures, albeit deceased. I might even write a drabble about their versatility...

    Neville, sure your AWOL anchovies can be seen to all.
    Nice, your obituary on anchovies will be salivating ;)
