The Giant Octopus Party


I’m not a party person but some things are really worth celebrating. Above is the invitation for the fiesta I’ll be holding in July. As you’ve all been so supportive you’re all invited. Seriously, any reader that can get down here for the 8th of July will be welcome.

The amazing image was drawn my friend Elena Val. I have stared at it for hours. She has managed to convey last year’s tussle more perfectly than I ever could with words.

Excellent news, Ben. A Giant Octopus indeed.

The party is a little out of my way, or I'd be there for sure. Please do send lots of pictures.

Salut!

Barry

I can not come, but I tell you I am very pleased to read this announcement. I hope that one day we meet at sea, crossing our bows.

Ben, Its two days before my daughter's wedding otherwise I'd be sorely tempted.

So I'll raise a glass and wish you all the very best.
Have a great time, cheers

We've got a family wedding too that day, sadly. I hope it's a huge celebration - and persuades you that you can be a party person after all!
