Not yet. Hopefully it will arrive today so I can use it over the weekend then send it off into its second half of the journey.

Tim... I'm not only very afraid... I'm terrified!! :pinch:

Nicely done Matt! Very glad to hear you enjoyed the cameras visit and got it speedily on it's way to Lisa.. I sense that now the camera is in the USofA its going to whizz through the next portion of it's journey around Washington and catch up with Europe and the RofTW before we know it..

Europeans and Rest of the Worldeans... fire up your engines and bribe your postmen and women!

Erik.. nicely calculated ;)

Methinks we should bribe WASHINGTON mailmen! Make them an offer they cannot refuse, to keep the USofA-camera for a few days.

Anyone has a horse to sacrifice for the good cause, there might be european horses over there, we send ours all the time, so does the irishers I'm told......

LOL!

You may indeed..

The only stipulation is that they are taken on two separate full moons....:whistling:

Taken. One a little sooner than I hoped...that trigger is mighty sensitive!

Now for the hand off.

Hmpf. Somebody orta issue some kind of THREAT, so that Homeland security clamps down EVERYTHING in DC!

It would be on top of the news, and I'd be sitting in my livingroom, watching those fencepassers in chains live on TV. Suspicious boxed handed over secretly? I bet they'd disappear from the face of the earth!

Earnestly lads, I hope you're succesful in the endeavour, has plenty light and give us all interesting images. I think both #7s will reach the finish line before both #6 and the MIA #1.

Anything in the mail for the little cottage on the Channel island today?


PS anyone beat my turn-around time? 1h 55 minutes from recipt to having taken 2 pictures, rewrapped the parcel and left it with the mail? Methinks that is hard to beat!

I'm waiting for the postman right now!......

.... and the Isle of Wight isn't really known as a channel island (even though we are in the English channel. That description is reserved for Guernsey, Jersey, Alderney and Sark all of which are closer to France than England.

ironically, despite the Isle of Wight being about four miles south of the English mainland we tend to think of ourselves as separate from England (although in reality we are not).

Steve quick question: during WW2 the channel islands where all occupied, right? While your little island was not?
Four miles off the coast is what we recon to be a good rifle shot over here!

Will you show us pictures of the little beatles cottage?
