Isn't Still Looking a funny name for a lost relative?

Was he related to Just Looking?

:-D :-D


RottenR Report 25 Jul 2011 17:46

If you go to

and enter still looking you will find that she is spouse of John Vance

I don't know

all these super sleuths,

and Still Looking is still hidden in Giant Haystack on the mudflats which might also be quicksands


SylviaInCanada Report 24 Feb 2012 01:18

LadyKira Report 24 Feb 2012 02:15

Wipe your feet Sylvia.
You still have mud on them :-D


SylviaInCanada Report 24 Feb 2012 03:45

but I tried wiping them on that hay over there >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

oh no :-0 :-0

do you think I've stomped on sprigs from Ms Haystack?? :-0 :-0 :-0 :-0


Cynthia Report 24 Feb 2012 08:18

I do hope it wasn't Clover you stomped on Sylvs :-0

Such a beauty from what I've heard.

I wonder if the other children were named Norma, Nigel and Norbert?

If so, we could be look for a trio of N.Eedles. Anyone looked around the Isle of Wight area?
