appearing in a footnote near you...

yes, hold on to your hats, it's true: Jago and I are appearing in a footnote. I felt, it being a footnote, I should give it a blog. Perhaps we could also have a footnote party and wear hats on our feet. here's what it says... (According to my Top Secret Sources with their ears to the ground and their noses in the trifle) (excuse me?) (pardon?) (stop it) As I was saying, here's what my Source tells me: 'At the bottom of page 15 of his book out this month, Ben Patterson writes, "The writers of the New Testament write with the conviction that every story and psalm of the Old Testament 'whispers his name.' There's a footnote, so I turned to it and read, "A phrase taken from The Jesus Storybook Bible, written by Sally Lloyd-Jones and illustrated by Jago Silver ...A terrific book--theologically astute, even profound, and beautifully illustrated." ' (God's Prayer Book.)

campaign chair

This is a replica of a chair used by my friend's dad, Jack Sanguinetti, during the Second World War. Campaign furniture was built during the 19th and 20th centuries for ease of transport--this one is totally collapsible and can be packed up and carried in a bag! These chairs were army inventory that the Army & Navy store used to supply. It traveled with Jack (right) when he was serving with the King's African Rifles in Kenya and then later in Burma (where he served with Mountbatten). Oh it's all so romantic and wonderful and like a movie I can hardly stand it. And as if that weren't enough to make your heart hurt, here are his three children all sitting on it (susie my friend is the one eating the teddy and looking a bit surprised--perhaps it wasn't as tasty as she had envisaged). Today also happens to be her birthday. Happy Birthday Susie Campaign Chair Queen of the Teddy Bear Eaters. (It's also Emily's Birthday, my niece, so happy birthday to Emily The Glorious Princess Nieceness, too) More here.
