Don't be ridiculous, Little Hawk, the Forget woman is the French equivalent of a poisonous snake. I have had dealings with her before. She is unquestionably attractive, but totally vicious and untrustworthy, and she hates the gentry and considers herself a sworn enemy of the upper classes, and bears me a serious grudge over my humiliation of her paramour, Malcolm Buggeroll, the perverted S Scottish poet. She also hates the English on principle, despite our heroic efforts on behalf of her wretched nation in WWII. Need I say more?
Nigel, I am sorry to hear about your wounds, but at least you have gotten a CGC out of it. Damn fine job. What I plan to do is fly to Paris tomorrow, and see if I can find them. This Arturo Espinoza likes living expensively, so I expect I can track him down soon enough by going to "the right places" if you know what I mean.
What puzzles me is that there is no word from Penelope whatsoever. I would think she would have something to say about all this. It's odd. More than that, it's worrisome. I have the laptop so I shall keep in touch.
