For those of you who haven’t already seen this on Suse’s blog………

Legend has it that the Sewjourn Stork …

was feeling a little chilly, what with being so far away from his tropical native lands* and the thought of a rural Victorian winter approaching.

And so, once upon a time in the autumn, someone
kindly made him some bright and snazzy leggings.

But he was still a wee bit chilly.

And so another thoughtful
made him a scarf.

The Stork was happy now, yes?

Um. Not quite. The Stork realised that part of his problem was a rumbly tummy. And lo, in the midst of the long hard winter he received the

And definitely one appropriate for a now-grounded flying hero, long retired from the days of migration yore.

    Jan! I’ve lost your e-mail address. Will you bring a small map of AU with you? I’d love it if you’d tell me more about your big trip and trace it on a map for me!!!

    Oh the poor stork, losing his tail! (He still looks very well dressed though…… and well fed with that gorgeous fish!)
    What a great posting!
    He might need some summer clothes soon in this warmer weather……
