Well, I finally scraped together enough pennies to buy the latest issue of the Beano. Farmer Jack pays 25p if you clean one of his tractors, which is a fair deal. So I cleaned two over the weekend, which makes 50p and I also sold a bale of hay to Bernard the Goat for 35p (which farmer Jack doesn't know about), so I had enough to buy the Beano AND a 10p "chomp". Hooray!
I was nearly bowled over with surprise when I spotted the new feature on the letters page; Derek Corner! A lovely little spot to send in your drawings of ME. And already there was a snappy drawing of me dressed as Tarzan swinging on a snake, by William Hunt of Farnham. What a great idea and seeing as I'm so good looking, it should make a change from looking at all those other ugly mugs that normally get drawn.
It certainly cheered up a rainy miserable day and my chomp tasted even lovelier. Thanks ed!
