Today we are leaving (Ooty) where we all had a chance of a decent nights rest, were able to resupply and had an opportunity to catch up on news and read telegrams of support from our patrons and loved ones back in Blighty. I was delighted to open a food parcel from Fortnums, which contained amongst its delicacies my preferred anchovy paste. Tip Top! C.F.
Ooty Club: God knows how the world is shrinking. Picking up a three week old telegraph I read the terribly sad news that old Blinky Blenkinsop has failed in his bid to solo the Eiger! It is rumoured he lost two of his trusted sherpas in the attempt! Terrible shame. What?
