    Very amusing! The image of Dr. Bairstow in green tights, even though it never occurred… 👍👍 And then there was the visual of Turk all decked out in factor fifty, a hat, and sunglasses. Well, those two visions were sufficient to keep my lost in a daydream for the better part of an hour. Thank you💕

    Which brings me to my next thought… and question
    Have you any plans as to Major Guthrie’s final jump? I was thinking, while lost in daydreams rather than writing this year’s group of 3rd-grade history lesson plans, that a jump back to somewhere around 1260 to 1271 to meet the Great Kublai Khan might be fun. Maybe a lost Marco Polo…

    AND…🤯I finally figured out where I recognized the name, Mavis Enderby. Lol, clever 🥰. Now that was definitely a brilliant idea!

    No, not films (unless someone with a lot of money insists). My family have decided that they should be a tv series. Must be very careful when deciding on the actors though!

    Love St. Mary’s……always look forward to the next one.

    Thank you. Just finished Plan for the worst. I love all your books and these have made me smile.

    Hi Jodie… Brilliant short (short…) story, looking forward to the new one! You really, REALLY need to get a movie deal arranged – have a stern word with your agent! Happy Easter, and keep safe!
