You made me smile Merlin.

I haven't any red flannel drawers I'm afraid but I'll ask around and pass some on to you.

The Thread about Magpies yesterday was quite Interesting,Especially the way to get rid of them We have about Three Pairs who visit on a Daily Basis,they seem to ignore the Cats,so I thought I,d try the "Red Material" Idea,However it seems that after the post it has been in short supply,I wonder if any of you good ladies on here have any spare "Winter Warmers" to spare? Ideally " Red Flannel" because they ,"Very Much cut down in Size" would also be of use to make Little Hats and Suits for "Pixies",So those of you who have such spare things could be helping and being charitable to a good cause,as well as helping to get rid of Magpies.Many Thanks.**M**.:o))))>
