What happened was.
I took them (in a box) to the Post Office.
When I saw the price of postage, I went "ouch" (sort of)
So
Buy a tube of Superglue. Stick them to the bottom of the box. And send them on their way.
(a bit like "The Luggage" but slower)
The top of the box is marked with a big arrow (and the word "England") with instructions for anyone that sees it, to point it in the right direction, if it is going off route.
It's heading for Roscoff. So providing it doesn't get on the Irish ferry by mistake, should be passing "The Hoe" around next april.

good good
your describing of what happened is getting better and better :D

so maybe they arrive by train?
i have a train station less than a mile from me :)

or by bus?
i think they have stuck to one of the bus drivers head in place of his ears - hes kinda stupid and VERY ugly!

You are definitely not right. 5 years of very little rainfall in this area has decimated the wild stocks.
