An unsolicited testimonial!

"I recently traveled overseas. A bomb was detonated at the airport shortly before I arrived, there were violent clashes between Maoist cliques and I met many trekkers who had been held up, sometimes at gun point. I wasn't affected by any of that and I can't say with absolute certainty that it wasn't, in some measure, because of the 'Good Luck Personal Modern Traveling Talisman TM' I'd been given before I left. If it wasn't due to other, unrelated factors, thank you 'Good Luck Personal Modern Traveling Talisman TM' ! "

A very lucky 'lucky cat'

This ancient lucky cat has landed in my possession.
Sources suggest that it has spent a good deal of time submerged
in salt water, most likely the sea.
An accurate dating of its age is not possible.
The miracle is that it still functions, waving its arm to
passers by who drive and walk by our shop window.

This is indeed one lucky cat.
I'm hoping that it's going to rub off.

On Saturdays I'll carefully pack it up and take it down
with me to the Rose St. Market.
