Oh this has made my evening! Remember the book Masquerade from 30 years ago, in which the clues in the pictures led you to whdre a beautifully crafted hare was buried as secret treasure ...

It's been reunited with the author

It's absolutely beautiful. I love hares. I never did get the clues but I remember the book and the paintings so well.

Do you mean that you didn't have a clue, Suzi? Wink

I ran over a rabbit, many years ago, just outside a churchyard. As I stopped to check on it, a vicar appeared and splashed water over it, tucked in the soggy bits, splashed it again.
To my surprise, the rabbit got to it's feet and hopped away, turning round every few yards and waving to the vicar.
I asked him if it was Holy Water he had splashed on it and he replied, "No,

It was Hare Restorer, with a permanent wave."

???????? Perhaps the following elucidates?

The Vicar had a couple rabbits painted on his bald head.

"Well," he explained "from a distance they look like hares". Wink

Call it "poetic licence". I know far worse than that one.
