My co-worker, Beth, recently shared this photo of herself and Mom, taken during her visit to Hawaii at the end of June . During the week she and her sister were on Oahu, they went to visit Mom in Kailua.

Got such a shock today! I was doing my occasional "google search" for Simon Soutar and came across a web site that seems to have digitized the book written by Leslie Purkis called "The Fire Kindlers". I have copies of this book and its two sequels that Leslie Purkis sent me, and I had no idea anyone else might have had a copy.

In any case, there was a mailto: link on the site, and I will fire off an e-mail to j.purkis@virgin.net this evening to see what the connection is.
