Living Room Scenes
Location: Farnborough, Hampshire
In between yawns and lethargic moments of tea consumption, this evening
turned out to be full of revelations - not surprising really when colour
cards are the main prop.
(Sue) displayed finely honed
interpretation skills -
Mark, it was revealed, will sire no less than
(Mike) has a passionate homelife. There wasn't
time for my cards to be read this evening but the prop itself was a
revelation for me - how did
Henry find the time and patience to colour
each card in so neatly ? Moreover, why didn't his felt-tip pens start
to fade and dry out half way through the task as the felt-tip pens of my
childhood always used to do ? A set of cards individually hand
coloured, now there is dedication for you.

reading of the cards
Whilst I was marvelling Henry's penmanship, the group focus switched to
marketing the cards - you too will one day be able to own your very own
set, available to buy at a Foiled convention near you !
There were other revelations too - how did Mike mange to spring up from
the beanbag he was sitting on each time someone mentioned Aliens ? Why
has Helen got an annoying habit of
turning off electrical appliances
whilst others are trying to use them ? Most perplexing of all, how did
Henry train his stomach to rumble that loudly ?
(Henry: lack of food...)
