    Jean? You didn't tell us, (OK, maybe a slight hint in the Xmas carol you posted).


    I remember the "midnight watchman" story and have repeated it several times :razz:

    too busy looking for Sid!!!!! Fortunately he's shown no more signs of wanderlust since his return as several people have come out specially to see him since that article was in the paper (front page too!!!!!!!)

    my kind of octopus

    Hi Jean
    I loved the story about your wandering octopus - he sounds like my kind of octopus and I'd love to meet him. Fortunately our big squid is dead and can't escape from it's tank...

    well c'mon down!!! It'll have to be soon though as Sid will be getting released soon...........he escaped again yesterday and was retrieved from the drains! .......Someone forgot to secure the tank doors (not me I wasn't on duty!!!).


    Hoping to get up to Te Papa soon to see your non escaping squid :grin:
