From a Distant Archive, far, far away. 22. (And Thought of The Day Holiday Postcard 4).

All this month of July the editorial staff of Bitsnbobs have shut themselves away in the distant archives. They hope to turn up a few gems, but whatever they find THERE will appear HERE.

Who’s that?

Mr Penny.



She’s married??!!!


Seems so.

How can it be?

Boy meets Girl, someone says shall we, the other say’s yes – it’s not rocket science.

No – I mean – how can it be that we never knew.

The Archives are full of things that you never knew, or, things you never KNEW you knew, or things you had forgotten you knew.

Yeah but this is knew… I mean,…. New.

The Archives are full of that too.


New stuff. Stuff that wasn’t there the last time you looked. They are organic. Even the looking creates archives.

What!? We’ll be here forever!

I hope so.

Where is Mr Penny today then, he’s not here is he?

This is the only document pertaining and Mrs Penny is unusually stum on the matter.

Looks like he’s in a bar in Ireland. Are there The Archives in Ireland?

There are rumours of forest caves and a submerged house.


Well they wouldn’t be rumours if they were, would they?

Strong point.
