Curiouser and Curiouser!

By Tooma
ONE FROM MO.

"At 11am on the morning after Sir Magnus' writing bureau had been taken away to be professionally restored, the phone in Highcliff Manor rang. Before she had even lifted the receiver, Lady Verity was gripped with an awful certainty about what this phone call was concerning. She knew that she would hear the voice of Mr MacNamee, the furniture repair man, and she knew exactly what he was calling to say. He had found a second picture.

She was right, of course. No one would ever be able to explain how she could possibly have been right about this, certainly not Lady Verity. Mr MacNamee detailed to her how he had found a loose panel at the back of the desk and that he was utterly compelled to pry it off. As he did a photograph fell to the floor. He explained that his sense of foreboding and unease upon glancing at the image was so overwhelming that he felt he could not continue with the repairs to the desk. It was as he was giving Lady Verity the name of the repair specialist that he had contacted to come and view the job, that she, uncharacteristically, rudely interrupted him.
"The image shows a man this time, doesn't it? He is also on the clifftop?"
Mr MacNamee replied "Yes, how did you know that? Did you already know that this photograph was behind the panel?" But Mr MacNamee got no reply. Lady Verity had hung up. How strange, how unlike her. What on earth was wrong at Highcliff Manor.

For those curious to know if there was anything written on the back of this photograph - there was, and here it is -
"If we had but known! What disaster we could have averted. Time heals all wounds, but memory is a cruel tormentor.".

This composite is all MO's work apart from the fox, and I think, the dovecot, which I shot. The V shows the reverse side of the curious photograph with the note just about readable.

Needless to say, excellent picture, brilliant text, great imagination! Grin

Sadly for me (great for everyone else Grin) no time to add nonsensical drivel. Sad

Now that Poldark is finished a candidate for a new BBC series?
Mo has great imagination and Photoshop(?) skills. So the tale continues?

Dear Davenport, please be assured that even the merest of comments from your fine self is more than sufficient drivel for us. We do so cherish your preposterous balderdash, Darnley. You shall ever remain our crony of claptrap. By the by - did you ever find your Gloria Hunniford Patented Self Digging Trowel? Was it indeed behind the Sunnyside Shelter For Hopeless Sycophants?

Ah, but be fair warned. As so many times in life....there may never be a satisfactory answer. Plus....we contacted the BBC about a series and they told us to "B*##@π Off".

Ah, the Gloria Hunniford Self Digging Trowel - a much underrated masterpiece of modern design but one with a fatal flaw. Being 'self diggers' they have never understood the simple principal that when one is in a hole one must desist from digging. I have lost three to my certain knowledge one of which appeared in an old mine working when it was being surveyed for the HS3 subterranean high speed narrow gauge railway.

They are notorious for going wandering. I believe Dave's was the upgraded "Golden Gloria Gouger" model, with a micro V8 engine and an enhanced self correcting soil sensor. Cost him an arm and a leg (pity, as he'd just been down to Tan-Dabby-Dozy for an all over Malibu Mahogany Mist).

If he hasn't got it back by this evening, we are going to organise a search party. If you want to join us, we are meeting at Finlay Torpedoe's Frankfurter Factory. Bring a torch, a whistle, a flare gun....and some mustard.
