  1. So, you tried to post comment on here and couldn't becos of those leters one has to decipher !!! i have same problem. One can "ckick" to request another configuration...ah well, to answer yr questions on facebook...
    The family had been on holiday in StIves and i had bought WALLIS postcards - i'm a great buyer of p/cards. On returning home, to Southampton, i had cards from FRANCO BELTRAMETTI & CATHY O'BRIEN...cannot remember if they were in return for my sending the "BLUE SHIP" or t'other way around. In fact, i remember you saw the poem at one time and thought it showed "s'thing" !!! Maybe that is still the case (?) - tho it has changed a little!!
    AND, YES1 odds'n' sods, scraps here and there to play with, given time and inclination. And SERENDIPITY!!!
