International endorsement

There’s a brilliant comment in the Christmas card from Munich relatives I’d sent a copy to:

“Richard, your lice book is brilliant, informative, highly entertaining, beautiful to look at — congratulations! The only strange thing was that we all had a lice visit 3 days after I read it…well we were well prepared!”

Funny how things happen like that.

Thanks Natalie.

Another museum, another comb

The Museum of London, today, with 120 seven-year-olds to study Roman Britain.

There was a comb. Just the one. But it didn’t look as if it would get out many head-lice. Even in pristine, non-broken condition the teeth were too widely spaced.

They were useless, them Romans. Really lousy.
