We sure love those books...

I'm still basking in the delight of the treasures I found at the Regent 24-hour Book Sale. Now the knowledge that I helped to contribute towards the $103,ooo raised by the sale makes it all feel even better. Glad to be of help, as I'm sure are all the Dunedinites, and out-of-towners who flocked to this annual bibliophile pilgrimage. Always pleased to do my civic duty.

This year's proceeds are earmarked for a new pulley system for the stage, so what props go up, stay up, and those who need to can fly...

This morning's grabbing headline:

"Fined for assault with a hedgehog."

I'm sure it wasn't much fun for the teenager, or the hedgehog.

assault with a hedgehog!!!

But,but, splutter - Mrs Tiggy-Winkle is sacred to all humans born after 1905.

I blame it all on TV you know, oh, hang on, was it fillums, no no that's not it. Video games and P that's it. That's what makes 'em do it.

That's put me off me crisps.

Was the hedgehog a weapon or an accomplice?
